This Just In: The Rowdies Resurrected
If you're Florida resident who has been saving their vintage ring-necked Crazy George t-shirt for a special occasion, I think I've got something that may interest you. The word out of Tampa --incarcerated stripper capital of the world-- is that USL-1 will resurrect the Rowdies name & colors from the NASL graveyard for the 2009 season. What's more is that they'll be playing in some form of new soccer stadium but the details are scant.
Incidentally, the USL league offices are in Tampa and GolTV is headquartered in Florida as well. Which means maybe, juuuust maybe we'll see a return of Mad Ray Hudson patrolling the sidelines. Is it likely, no, but I can dream can't I?
