Vancouver, BC - Vancouver Whitecaps fan Andrew Hanssen admitted that he is quickly rationalizing the acquisition of former Seattle Sounder Fredy Montero as he progresses through the stages of grief after spending a full day hating the acquisition on Twitter.
"GOD. WHY? GOD. WHY?" stated Hanssen when the rumors began to surface of the acquisition of one of the players that Hanssen hated with a passionate fervor previously. "We need offense.... but NOT LIKE THIS.... NOT... LIKE... THIS."
Reportedly, by the time time that the Whitecaps made the official announcement on Wednesday morning, Hanssen was already progressing from denial through anger to bargaining to depression and was verging on acceptance primarily because the team has no one else that is trustworthy that can score goals.
"I'm already working on imagining him scoring against the Sounders to win the Cascadia Cup," stated Hanssen to his friends. "I hate this move with the fire of a thousand suns, but I love my Caps, but I also hate this move. I'm very conflicted. This offseason sucks."
The Nutmeg News will have more as Hanssen starts to boo Montero during the first game at BC Place because he can't help himself.
