Feb. 6th: You Know What It Is
So are y'all ready for this? I know I'm not the only one all wound up right now, counting the hours to the pre-game and ordering imaginary pints in my head. Yes, it's going to be a tough day at the old jobby-job today.
I wish I could put it away for a bit but I can't. And why should I front and talk about anything else when this match has so many angles to cover? You could talk about how the 80's Babies are facing their 1st big call-up under Bob Bradley. Or maybe we could focus on Baby Bradley all by his lonesome. Then there's the story of America's Homegrown Hater's who root for El Tri despite calling the U.S. home.
Off the field it's worth noting that this match will be the 1st in a while not to feature Dave O'Brien & Eric Wynalda on the call. Believe it or not I may miss Big Dave; as he got more familiar with the game I got much more comfortable with him & his baseball voice. For old times sake I'll leave you with his intro to last February's border war...feel it.
