A huge thank you to Chicago Fire reporter Sam Stejskal for telling Brian McBride about the fan’s planned tribute at practice today on TSG’s behalf. Thank you Sam.
“I didn’t know that [his tribute] but that’s a very nice sentiment.
But I’m no different than anybody else that has played for them.
Yeah, I was fortunate enough to play a little bit longer than some and be involved in some great teams […in regards to being called in] but that game’s about preparing.
I’m sure Bob wants to make sure that he’s preparing his team for the start of qualifying so I’ll get to say hi and wave and say hello to everybody when I see them but sentiment wise that’s very nice for them to do that.”
Sam: I followed up on the “say hello” part of the quote, asking if there was some sort of plan in place for him to get a send off. He said “no, I just mean if I see them.”
The accolades piled up long ago.
The praise continues to pile up this week across publications, support groups and fans.…
The name and role in US Soccer, irreplaceable.
October 9th the United States faces Poland in a rather meaningless friendly in Chicago. It doesn’t have to be.
Dan from The Free Beer Movement kicked off the discussion. TSG added the promo and the USMNT’s growing-like-a-weed support American Outlaws will help execute it flawlessly and provide the moxie and muscle.
AO is requesting that fans big and small, male and female show their support to Brian McBride August 9th as the arrange a tribute.
If you’re going to Chicago, heck if you’re watching in a bar, please add to USA’s salute to the efforts of Brian McBride by doing one-and-all of the following:
• Paint your face in the signature style “drawn” from McBride against Italy at the World Cup in 2006. See video above if you’re a newbie.
• Hit up the barber and issue yourself a McBride like comb-over.
• Make, carry, “borrow” a banner.
• Get a t-shirt. (TSG will figure out where to donate any proceeds.)
• Scream your lungs out, learn a song.
Always look on the McBride side of life….
