New Jersey Keeper Konopka Joins The European Ranks
Need further proof that American goalies are "the new black" in Europe? Even backups that haven't even made an appearance in MLS are getting signed in Europe. Mind you in this case it is in the Eirecom League, but their ambulances have a funny sound so in my mind it's totally Europe.
My local newspaper, the Asbury Park Press (which BTW is the poorest excuse for newspaper in New Jersey and the nation), has a piece on local boy and former Kansas City Wizard Chris Konopka. I don't know him but met his brother a couple of times…good guy. Anyway, for a guy that never even played a game for KC he seems to be doing quite well; he's actually playing for Bohemian FC and is part of the u-23's pool. Say it with me now....Toms River represent!
You can read the whole thing here but I wouldn't recommend ever reading anything else in this publication.
