Bloomington, MN - Minnesota United fan Merle Smith admitted that he is already way too attached to the players and staff that are signed to the team as Minnesota United make their way into Major League Soccer.
"I'm going to remember Venegas and Heath and Davis until I die," stated Smith to The Nutmeg News. "I'm so locked into their careers that I'll probably follow them after they leave the team in 15 months for cap space and TAM."
Smith admitted that he understood the lifespan of the average player in Major League Soccer is extremely short, but refused to let the knowledge of their future departure for financial assets dampen his enthusiasm for six months of watching them.
"I'm planning on buying that MLS kit with Davis or Venegas on it so that people know my pre-MLS credentials. Freaking legends, the both of them and we won't forget when they leave for 2018 draft considerations and TAM that we use to spend on an Ecuadorian midfielder that just wont pan out."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Smith anticipates being overly attached to the assistant coaches, groundskeepers, and season ticket representatives for 2017.
