Landon Likes To Play His Soccer in Warm Weather
It seems like Alexi Lalas has got finally got everyone to drink the Kool-Aid on the whole "LA Galaxy: Superclub" thing. Let's just take a wee moment to go down the checklist of Superclub requirements here:
1. Signed international superstar player, check
2. Sell more merch than a motherfucker, check
3. Get sexy, big name coach, check
4. Spend the off-season touring lesser footballing markets, check
5. Star players making overtures about playing in said lesser footballing markets at some later point in their careers.
How cute. Our Landon playing the Henry role for the one westernized nation who are in need of their own soccer Jesus more than we are. He could just swoop down from a Quantas flight from LAX and add a bit of that foreign flair that Americans are known for. Or will be known for one day.
Now if only they could get caught up in a match-fixing scandal with RSL, and if one of the less-attractive players gets nabbed with a prostitute (because he has to pay for it) and an 8 ball at The Standard hotel they will have truly arrived.
