I still have pain stemming from the demise of the NASL, the North American Soccer League, because that was my dream, that was to be my future. I went to college in South Carolina with this dream of playing pro soccer. That league collapsed, and it wasn't until MLS and D.C. United that I had a spark of another dream, but the mullet had passed years earlier. My bad haircut had already gone away, and music was my next adventure.
Let's see, I would say the Redskins fans right now are more humbled than D.C. United fans. D.C. United's got a couple nice fresh rings from the past decade; Redskins fans are crying in their damn beer. D.C. United fans walk a little more proudly; Redskins fans, I think they've got their fists clenched. I don't know who they're going to punch, Daniel Snyder or the freaking Cowboys.Maybe someone people know will be seen in the stands at an MLS match one day.
