ESC Bring Lessons in Old-School Hip Hip, History to SuperDraft 2010



This is why supporters groups, particularly the ESC, appeal to me. There are few things in this world that are not named Ricky Gervais that are as entertaining as a group of educated, half-drunks with a penchant for The Ramones, Boogie Down Productions interpolations and references to colonial historical figures. To those behind goal, I salute you.

And this is why i can't wait to join these dudes. They WILL get bigger.

My little runts (aged 6 and 4) know some of their songs already.

And no matter how much backlash we've gotten over the years from other "tough" supporter groups, we've taken it in the chin but nothing will detract the best group from the funnest area that is the Tri-State Area.

OK, been drinking some and am about to pass out at 4 in the afternoon!

Did these guys get their own team too? or was that just the sons of ben?

It's great, until you remember they cheer for a team name after an energy drink. Ugh...it's just not the same as teams who try to at least pretend they stand for something more than shilling a product.
Even man united and real madrid seem quaint compared to that.

Maybe RB will see the light someday and give them a real name/identity.

Nice. I hope the coaching staff heard that Van den Bergh chant.

What were they chanting "The son of Ben was a ___"?

About Red Bull seeing the light and changing the name. I wish they would but it's not gonna happen. They've payed top dollar to do this in Austria and they've payed top dollar to do it here. They just don't seem content to have stadium naming rights, kit sponsorship and their signage all over the stadium and field. You would think that would be enough. It's actually kind of obnoxious that they insist their company name be the name of the club. The name will change only when the team is sold it seems.

The son of Ben was a Torry. (British supporter during the Revolutionary War.

Do you think they knew they were singin' some BDP or Diddy's remix of Jimmy?

The Jimmy song was initially used for Tim Howard when he played for the MetroStars so many yrs ago.

FACT.

Wasnt that guy on the video the same guy who made a video about how scared red bull fans are about coming to DC and getting there ass beat by 1 skinhead? Funny that at the draft I heard them chanting Jersey boys are nothing to fuck with.lol yeah because they will make a movie about and cry all over us.

Say WHAT? A Rockland Test Tube Baby is a little cranky since the Mayor took away his stadium blankey and goes on some ramble circa 2006? Nice try, dinkus. As ever, we'll see ya in Downtown Crackville when Metro roll that way. No stadium, no cry.
