Philadelphia Union already needs a makeover

We’re nine months from first kick and I’ve already got a complaint about the new Philadelphia MLS team.  Philadelphia Union?  Hell, even a simple FC Philadelphia sounds better.  I’d also settle for Philadelphia Athletics or Philadelphia 1776.  Unfortunately, the massholes already took Revolution but surely there’s a better name than Union.  When I watch the beautiful game, I don’t want to be reminded of hard work, The Jungle, or Frank Sobotka.

The blank page is a void we must fill.

The empty stadium is a palace we must glorify.

The abandoned, snow-dusted field is just cause for melancholy.

I saw a great movie once, one line always stuck out, more than the others. “Nature’s cruel, Staros.”

Nature’s cruel. The two characters talking represent the dualistic nature of man. Yeah, two thumbs up.
