Iced tea or green tea sure, but not regular english tea.
My mom drinks tea like it's water. I like tea, don't get me wrong, but it's actually quite disturbing to see how often and how much she drinks it. I'd say anywhere from 6-10 cups a day. I don't even drink that much coffee, and that's saying a lot.

That part's my favorite. It fits perfectly in the Philadelphia mentality.

Since we seem to be on the soccer thing right now, does anyone know when/how they determine who is going to play for the Union? I'm pumped for next season already but I can't find a thing about how they're going to make the roster.

A couple of guys I know are planning to try out too. I was more wondering if we get to poach players off other teams' rosters like the old NHL expansion drafts or anything like that. And do we get the first pick in the SuperDraft or whatever its called?

Here's a link to the artcile describing Seattle's Expansion Draft:

I assume the drafts for Philly and those that follow will work on a similar level.

On the topic of coffee and tea.
I love both, so which ever you have I'll drink whatever. Coffee is sooo good though, I loved the taste the first time I had it.

Thanks. Looks like it's going to be a while before we get some names to root for.

It's probably referring to this, which is a cartoon by Benjamin Franklin before or during the revolution I believe.

Seattle signed two prominent names through free agency (Kasey Keller and Freddie Ljungberg), so it's not out of the realm of possibility that Philly could draw notable players in their expansion year.

I am looking forward to the new MLS team. I want to get season tickets, but I don't think it's in the cards. I'm the only one I know who will even bother with soccer.

to me it looked like he was throwing that with his wrong hand or he did it on purpose. I mean no one can honestly miss that bad from 60 feet can they? lol

Yeah, I hate soccer. It's just too slow. In baseball you can hang on every pitch, and each one could be a home run, but in soccer, it's not that way at all.

Honestly though, I have played some, and it is quite fun to play. I just can't watch it though.

I think that pace really helps it build tension.

I'm not a huge fan. I don't follow any team, but I'll watch it from time to time for entertainment purposes. My friend is a big soccer fan, and was trying to talk me into getting season tickets for the Philly team. I'm not sure if I'm going to, but I think now that there's a local team, I'll probably start to follow it a bit more. She's actually insisting on taking me to the world cup qualifying game that's at Lincoln Financial in July. My thing is I never played it as a kid. I tried, but the whole foot coordination thing has to be going on, which I lack in the most severe form. I'd most likely try kicking the ball and end up breaking my ankle in 5 places. I was a lacrosse player. Aside from running, it had nothing to do with feet haha.

On a completely different and random note, I just thought about FF97 for some reason. Does anybody have any idea whatever happened to her?

One of my ex's was a girls lacrosse goalie. Now I understand when people say it takes a "special" person to be a goalie.

She was a nut job.

My good friend in high school was the goalie on our team, and she used to show me her bruises. I got them just from being tapped during a game or practice. I'm not sure if you or anyone else on here has ever felt a lacrosse ball before. ****'s heavy as ****, and I can't imagine any normal person wanting to be continuously pelted with that thing. I remember getting hit in the shin on a bounce, not even on a throw and I had a black and blue mark for about 2 or 3 weeks.
