The Ballad of Dave van den Bergh
I like this Dave van den Bergh. He's not the youngest or fastest guy on the RBNY wing (Richards is) but he's intelligent and a great crosser of the ball (Richards isn't). At the end of the o7 campaign many fans --myself included-- weren't sure if he would be around for the beginning of the 2008 season; thankfully he was since he's become one of the leaders of a team that was in need of a bit of guidance.
Before his arrival in NY, DVB played a single season for Kansas City but was traded to NY for a third-round pick in the 2007 supplemental draft. That gave the Wizards a total of 3 picks for the round. Where are those picks now? One is playing in Ireland, one isn't playing at all and one is playing on a prison team. Meanwhile they guy they traded away is playing in MLS Cup.
