Philadelphia, PA - Philadelphia Union fans the nation over celebrated the firing of Nick Sakiewicz as he was forced out of his CEO position on Thursday.
"So this is what winning on Wednesday would have felt like" said Bob Roberts of Glenolden. "I can't express how I feel. We lost the trophy but we won the war. I'm walking on clouds!"
Union fans have reportedly now almost completely forgotten the pain of the second consecutive US Open Cup Finals loss and now can focus on the fact that their team got rid of at least one part of the reason why their club has been run into the ground.
"I am overjoyed" said Deborah Evans of Ardmore "I've wanted Sak out for some time and now we really get to start over, again. This is a fresh beginning and finally we may have a chance. The fans can see a potential way forward. Of course we still have part of the ownership team in Sugarman but maybe he can hire the right people. I don't know. Either way, I'm still very very excited about all of this."
The Nutmeg News asked Jeremy Sweetwater of Philadelphia what the Son's Of Ben will do with the mock coffin used for the protest against Sakiewicz and he stated, "We will paint it red and ship it over to Chicago for those guys to use. Maybe it will bring them good luck."
