"Today is your day to step up and see what you are made of as a team. To give anything less than your best is failure. To fail to leave it all on the pitch is failing yourselves and your mates. Give as good as you get and neither ask from nor give anything to the enemy. There is no substitute for victory, only despair." According to Jimmy Greaves, Spurs member of the English team, this was a rare statement made in the English locker room by Bobby Moore, England captain before the Germany match in World Cup 66. It is most fitting for all soccer clubs anywhere regardless of their level of play or competition. It will be interesting to see if the Blast continue to improve as they have or step back to look at what they have gained. Go Blast. gforever
Amom, normally before a Blast game, you will find a tailgate or two across the street in the parking lot of the old Victory field. It is either a tailgate party, or some fine gentlemen stoking up for the game beforehand. gforever
I gotta work tonighta nd it's killing me. Damn. Obviously this is a much different team than the one that lost 3-0 in Cincitucky. I am not so keen on just throwing Beasley into the starting 11 right away, but thats just me. Anyhow I hope for a 2-1 victory tonight.
