Knicks star Carmelo Anthony announced Thursday that he is bringing a professional soccer team to Puerto Rico for the first time in three years.
It’s been an offseason of nothing but smiles and cheers from Cosmos Country, a far cry from what Red Bulls and NYCFC fans have had to endure.
The next move is yours, Joe Six-Pack. This soccer thing ain’t going anywhere, so you might as well accept it.
Chances are you’ll encounter plenty of soccer fans ahead of Monday’s U.S.-Ghana match. But guess what? They’re not real fans if they pooh-pooh the teams in their own backyard.
This matchup is kind of like the Yankees playing their Triple-A team in Scranton. But the Cosmos are out to prove they have assembled a club that can beat an MLS team.
Just like the Cosmos of old, it was an international star that came up with the big goal, as Marcos Senna helped the Cosmos win their sixth Soccer Bowl.
The Cosmos lifted the NASL trophy, defeating the Atlanta Silverbacks 1-0.
Giorgio Chinaglia, legendary Cosmos striker passed away on Sunday at 65. Few athletes enjoyed the excesses of winning in New York quite like Chinaglia.
