Boston, MA - Dan Bletchly, a sports fan and every-four-years soccer fan, admitted that he still reads the United States Men's National Team acronym of USMNT to read United States Mutant Ninja Turtles.
"Yeah, I still see United States Mutant Ninja Turtles," stated Bletchly to The Nutmeg News on Friday morning. "I can't help myself. I think the acronym is stupid, and all I can do is imagine Donatello having a chance on goal."
Reportedly, Mr. Bletchly has admitted to giggling every time he reads a newspaper report of the USMNT due to his predilection for seeing Mutant Ninja Turtles. He has also gone so far as to construct a lineup of the best usage of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in the midfield.
"It's gotta be Michelangelo at regista. Um... that's it right?" stated Mr Bletchly as he pulled out a copy of Inverting the Pyramid from his backpack. "Yeah, that's it. Anyway, I think that we all know Rafael is a sweeper or a center-half. Either way, it's still the only way I read USMNT and I can't make myself stop."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Mr. Bletchly's heroes in the half shell play on Sunday.
