Denver, CO - "This would be a great place for local soccer," stated Timothy Anderson of Denver to his friend Carl Young during halftime of the United States/Trinidad and Tobago World Cup Qualifier. "I wonder why Denver doesn't have a team?"
Anderson admitted that this was his first trip to Dick's Sporting Good Park although he was quick to add, "I've traveled across the world for the USMNT."
Citing a list of cities and countries to which he has traveled following the United States, Anderson stated that he collectively spent nearly $10,000 to $15,000 over the past World Cup qualifiers, tournaments and friendlies.
"It'd be great if there was a local team to support, but I rep my country first. If Denver ever gets a soccer team in that MLS thing, just let me know. I'll be the first person to sign up for season tickets as long as it doesn't impact my upcoming trip with the American Outlaws to Mexico or my purchase of every custom design US kit that I will spend 4 hours bashing on Twitter before purchasing a Pulisic version."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Anderson forgets his promise and turns down free Rapids tickets two months later.
