The Red Bull Rant

The quasi dark side of RBNY fandom.

#Heel (New York Red Bulls vs. Tottenham Hotspur preview)

OK. This Major League Soccer thing you all have going on is really cute. Let’s not kid ourselves, here. Tottenham Hotspur, the team that had Champions League football (yeah football, not soccer…geeks) ripped away from them by fate and a German side actually losing a PK shootout ON THEIR OWN PATCH, are coming to town. Your New York Red Bulls are fun to watch, but this isn’t going to be a game as much as it is going to be an exhibition that involves a less-than-fit Gareth Bale making galloping runs down the wing, and a 19-year old forward getting a hat-trick;

Before halftime.

I know what you’re going to say. “Tim Cahill something something.” Wait, the dude from the A-League is what’s supposed to have me shaking? Man, what’s next? You gonna send Shane Smeltz out at us?

Wait, what’s that?

None of you have Harry Redknapp to kick around anymore. This is a new era, the era of my new best friend AVB –


I’m going RBNY 0-7 Spurs, if it’s even that close.
(BTW heel turn on RBNY ends Tuesday night at about 10:00 pm ET).
