Opinion: On Adi

Let’s be honest for a minute, though. Don’t drink and drive is a great concept, but people do it all the time. They go out to dinner and have a drink with their meal and then drive home. I know everyone reading this always calls an Uber or assigns a designated driver.

This year feels different.  I'm actually excited about the start of the season being today.  The team is back, soccer is back, and we finally get to watch our guys play a competitive match.  Not much has changed, just that the club did go out and buy a brand new team, a veritable not-quite-MLS-quality-but-almost all-star team, with the obvious goal of leaving the USL like Sherman left Atlanta.
