Something Great

Arsene Wenger cobbled together starting lineups with spit and duct tape and Denilson and somehow the team dragged its ass over the finish line in third or fourth.

An Introduction

It's true. The world needs another blog, and especially another football/soccer blog, like it needs Mahmoud Ahmadinejad with nukes. But this isn't about the world, it's about us.

When you spend your Saturdays (and sometimes Sundays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays) watching and analyzing the beautiful game, it's probably time to find a useful outlet for your thoughts, opinions, biases, etc. Thus, The Legend of Carl Awesome.

Just two Americans trying to enjoy the best that world soccer has to offer. Located in Washington, D.C. and New York, NY, where options for viewing are thankfully abundant.

The Name?
See here. Almost as good as Joe Bread-and-Water. Oh, and one of us has a thing for the Uruguayan National Team and long, flowing locks.

All over the board, but I can guaransheed that the big European clubs and national teams will take the lion's share of discussion. Also, MLS shall be shunned until St. Louis gets its rightful expansion team.

We'll try not to be too ridiculous and always give credit where it's due, but there should probably be some disclosure.

Jim: Arsenal FC, U.S. National Team; and to a lesser extent AS Roma, TH14, Air McBride, Leo Messi, Super Robert Pires.

Juan: Uruguayan National, Arsenal FC, Juventus (most recent), Penarol, Cristiano Ronaldo, Luca Toni, Italian wet hair, and storybook runs like Ivory Coast 2006.

Just your everyday thoughts and arguments. Needless to say, outrageous goals will also receive attention. Hopefully, though, there will be some special features like club rankings, match diaries, and football pub reviews. Stay tuned.

The Template?
We'll probably just Beyonce as we go along.

I enjoy the name, quite distinguished. I shall post here, as I imagine frequently contributing, that I am a Reds fan (Liverpool), Bayern Munich (family ties), Boca Juniors, Saprissa (Costa Rica), Man City (on behalf of the Greatest Band alive, Oasis), and Maccabi Haifa.

I look forward to the development of the blog.
