Take the Party Inside: Meola Rules in 1st Ironmen Game
For those of us that where too wrapped up in the playoffs over the weekend to notice, the world kept turning. Some things that happened while you were drunk due to the jubilance of victory or the depression of defeat were the Red Sox winning the World Series, Obama was involved in some gay drama and the MISL season began.
And the Goalkeeper of the Week award went to Big Tony from Jersey. I know a lot of people out there don't give the indoor game a look, but with the off-season doldrums due to set upon our grass-stained souls might I suggest a trip to your local arena for some hot (literally) indoor action.
Being that we're in the midst of MLS playoffs and have less than 4 weeks of outdoor soccer action left I am already dreading the off-season withdrawal. I don't get tremors or shakes like someone who's trying to detox or whatever, but I do get bored with watching overseas games on TV. Sure the EPL and La Liga have amazing players with amazing skill. But there is just something so detached about it; after you spend so much time in the stands for your local side it just seems so far away.
I know precious little about the MISL and I may sound crazy for saying this but I think I'd rather gather up a bunch of dudes, get some beers in and be really loud at an indoor game than wake up at 7am on Saturday to watch some random Euro clubs.
But that's just me...some have a one-night stand while others would prefer phone sex .
