Try saying that 10 times fast!
Ok guys, I’ll be honest. I am too emotionally worn out by the Quakes final regular season match to give much analysis, but I will present to you my (possibly somewhat confusing) thoughts after tonight’s game at Portland:
1. Sigh. Wondo. With 27 goals, you were so close, yet so far.
2. But then again, WONDO! Tying a record that has stood for 16 years is no small feat. He is still in the history books. He is still awesome. Extra points for keeping cool enough to convert a penalty kick. We’re still ok.
3. We’re still OK?! We’re fantastic! We won the Supporters’ Shield, for crying out loud!
4. But San Jose just tried too hard to get the ball to Wondo. His teammates wanted it so badly for him.
5. Then again, lest we forget, Wondo has won the Golden Boot. By like a hundred goals. Ok, closer to 10, but still. And he is the first in MLS history to be the top scorer 3 years in a row. We’ll take it.
6. But we have never beat Portland. ”How can that be?” you may ask. Who knows?
7. And oh yes… we are going to the playoffs!
So now you have a small idea of what is going on in my mind. Prepare yourself for the emotional roller coaster that will be the playoffs. I kid. (Not really.)
