VIDEO: They Were The NY Cosmos
Hate 'em if you want but no one does NASL-era nostalgia like the Cosmos and I ain't mad at that. You use what tools you've got.
I just wonder why the Earthquakes weren't milking this cow years ago. Why not flaunt George Best scoring the illest goal of the disco era? How about some footage of Guus Hiddink running the midfield back in the day cut with a clip of him running things from the touchline now? Or maybe some grainy, weepy footage of Celtic legend Jinky Johnstone?
I'm not trying to say that the current 'Quakes staff are doing a bad job or the the Cosmos are 100% crushing it. Hindsight being 20-20 and all it just seems like San Jose missed an opportunity back in 1999.
