On Awards and Alcoholism
Big shouts have to be given today to MLS for being named 2008 Sports League of the Year at last night's Sports Business Journal Awards in Manhattan. From contraction 7 years ago to "I'm the King of the World" today...nice. Also give props to AEG/Galaxy bigwig Tim Leiweke who took home the award for Sports Executive of the Year which I'm sure will look really good on his resume (do guys at this level even have resumes?).
Those are fine accolades to have for sure, but what about Drunk of the Week? I wouldn't recommend dropping that one into your CV but achieving that status will put you in the running for Drunk of the Year. And if you win that, well let's just say being immortalized on a lovely all-synthetic fibers scarf is right up there with being engraved on Mt. Rushmore or making the Strange Mugshot Hall of Fame.
