Oakland, CA - Ebullient Golden State Warriors fan Carlos Jimenez admitted that after his beloved Warriors locked up another NBA Championship that he was disappointed to find out that his local soccer options were the San Jose Earthquakes and San Francisco City FC.
"Really? San Jose and an amateur team? That's the best I can do?" asked Mr. Jimenez as he slowly came back down to earth from the Warriors celebration. "I have to go from Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Steve Kerr, and two championships in three years to Chris Wondolowski and Dom Kinnear? Nah, I think I'll pass."
Jimenez, reportedly, was excited by the idea of finding a new summer passion that could give him as much satisfaction as the Curry lead Warriors, but his investigation lead him down an unfulfilling rabbit hole of angry supporters, cheap ownership and frustrating teams.
"If you are already a fan, than good job and stick with it. Thing is, I'm new at this US Soccer thing and I'm not about to go from what feels like the beginning of a dynasty to watching people run around like they don't know what they are doing. I'm just going to stick with my dad's club of Tigres. Liga MX is easier to find on television anyway."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Jimenez buys a Gignac kit.
