This Just In: San Jose to Partner with Tottenham Hotspur
I'm starting to feel like European clubs are picking MLS clubs to partner with as part of some sort of soccer homesteading scheme. You know, claim some territory in the New World before your neighbor does...that type of thing. Chelsea have The Galaxy, FC Dallas is the Lucky Pierre with Tigres & Atletico Paranese, Arsenal are locked up in love for days with Colorado, Red Bull are but aren't mobbed up with their Austrian cousin in Salzburg, Chivas USA is the stepchild of Chivas Guadalajara and Real Salt Lake are down like clowns with Real Madrid.
Today we're hearing that the brand-new MLS old-schoolers, San Jose Earthquakes, have a presser scheduled at 2pm tomorrow to announce a partnership with Tottenham. No details yet but that is random, random, random. If it ends in Gio Dos Santos playing in NorCal in the summer though (which I know full well it won't) it's a smash.
