NEW YORK - Eternal critic of the soccer structure in North America Carl Pearson admitted that he allowed himself a feeling of fleeting joy while watching a goal scored by Steven Mendoza during NYCFC's 3-2 win over the Vancouver Whitecaps.
"I felt a tremor in my extremities which soon enveloped my entire body. Words of joy came out of my mouth before I could stop them," stated Mr Pearson to The Nutmeg News on Wednesday. "I momentarily felt the kind of happiness that leads one to abandon all kinds of moral pretense. I resolved quickly after that to regain my resolute dissatisfaction of the structure of soccer within North America and buried that feeling of joy of the game of soccer without pondering on the overall impact that it has upon a society deep within my soul where it will not awaken until an inadvertent yelp will be exclaimed after a David Villa goal four months from now."
Mr. Pearson has stated that he does not allow himself to feel any joy at the game of soccer from any league in the United States or Canada due to the fact that all leagues are complicit in the, "Cabal like structure that strangles real growth of a league based upon anarchic community owned syndicates that operate within a grass roots endeavor."
He stated, as well, that on rare occasions he can once again regain the love of the game of soccer independent of the geo-political ramifications of enjoying the sport, but that this typically only happens twice per year before he reminds himself, "man in this country cannot enjoy soccer ever whilst the elite oligarchy strangle our dreams in the cradle with the umbilical chord of the centrally controlled league bourgeois elite while our dreams of a socialist utopia involving cut throat capitalist league structures ensuring that mediocrity and failure is resolutely punished dies and withers."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Mr. Pearson asks his friend Leonard to not post the photo of him doing a "fist pump" in celebration.
