Soccer Social


Soccer Social, because sometimes you just need to sit back and live vicariously.

This week we make amends for missing quite a post from Dax McCarty. The in-crowd of the NWSL is loving the GIF. The Montreal Impact try and outdo, the now defunct, Chivas USA in worst timing for breaking news. Real Salt Lake feels the love from the artist formerly known as Snoop Lion/Snoopzilla and the Red Stars do the Chicago baseball tour. North or South Side?

Real Salt Lake basked in the glory of having the one and only Snoop D-O-Double G wearing their uniform. Very cool indeed but don't jump to conclusions on Snoop being a huge Claret and Cobalt fan, he loves repping jerseys wherever he goes. 

Real recognize Real

I am ashamed to say that I missed quite the announcement last week from the Red Bulls' king of social media, Dax McCarty. Apparently Dax decided he was quite smitten and went for a memorable walk on the beach...

She said yes guys... 💍😁

I fondly remember the late Friday/early Saturday news announcements of the dumpster fire that the once proud Chivas USA organization became. Perhaps in a salute to those glory days the Montreal Impact decided to fire their coach, Frank Klopas, at 12:41 A.M.

One of Klopas' former players Jack McInerny happened to still be awake and said what we would have all been thinking had we not been sprawled out and snoring already.

In the NWSL, the playoff field was set after the Washington Spirit clinched the fourth and final spot. Playoff seeding is still undetermined but the teams that had clinched just couldn't resist the GIF...

Unfortunately, FC Kansas City didn't join in on the banter. My vote goes to Seattle on winning the GIF battle. The opening of the door to the land of the playoffs where they have long been basking...lawl.

Making the playoffs and winning World Cups makes you very popular so a few of the Chicago Red Stars have been touring the Chicago baseball scene as of late. North Side and South Side meet far West Side? 

Brought the #fifawwc trophy to #wrigleyfield, threw three solid first pitches, now they just have to sing 😳.
