Enjoy watching Bill Hamid through this season if we're lucky, the August transfer window most likely. Oh, game was early afternoon, I had no one to talk to so I talked to myself on Evernote trying to beat it's auto-correct. I won't use this gag again until I do. I mention Hamid early because he (and the crossbar) is clearly man-of-the-match, but also because Evernote calls him humid in the transcript below:

9330 that's that. Steal a point. humid is man of the match. No one else in con station.
We need to talk about Pajoy. Notice how at first Evernote's auto-correct called him parody, me thinking, hey, an auto-correct with an ironic sense of humor, which maybe it does since I typed Pajoy sucks so often it let me have my way.
Midfield is a mess. Saragosa is slow and heavy-touches and soft-passes, when I think better John Thorrington or Lewis Neal, why are they the three choices? Olsen commented on NBC at half that Metros were doubling Pontius everywhere (so much a threat Metros considered Pajoy), Pontius rarely touched ball anywhere near danger (with one good exception around 60th), and when he went right (cause he can't go left) right meant backwards towards humid. And I don't get the anointing of DeLeon as special (the NBC voices said DeLeon had worked himself onto Klinsmann's radar), his first touches are almost Pajoy shitty, his passes behind the moving target to start and slow to boot to boot. Badumpdump.
Early and yadda. Three games, two difficult road games, four points, incoherent play because of DeRossario's suspension, the back line looks good (though Jakovic can't pass for shit and Riley seems good for two brain farts a game), Kitchen is excellent, and Bill Hamid is the future of American keepers, barring injury (and USMNT not making Brazil, a very real possibility) Bill Hamid is first keeper in Brazil in 2014 and starting for some European top division team as early as this September. So, Columbus at home next Saturday at 330. More next Sunday, with photos!
