Boston, MA - After hearing of his brother Mark's interest in buying the Columbus Crew, actor and entrepreneur Donnie Wahlberg announced his interest in a National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) team.
"We can base it in the Boston area," stated Wahlberg to The Nutmeg News. "We are workshopping names, but it will either be called New Kicks On The Block or Wahlbangers FC."
Fans of the starved for soccer Boston area admit that it would be fantastic to have a local side for which to root.
"I'd love to have some local soccer," stated fan of the sport James Killkenny. "We don't have anything around here, for soccer, and I'm not about to go all the way out to Foxborough if Tom Brady isn't playing."
According to the NPSL, they have yet to hear anything concrete from Mr Wahlberg, but that didn't stop the owner of Wahlburgers from talking about this upcoming action with online publications.
"Yeah, it'll be great. We can have concessions provided by Wahlburgers and the music will be provided by old school jams from New Kids On The Block and The Funky Bunch. I've even heard that Dominic, a nephew of mine, played some online soccer so it'll give him a good chance at playing some outdoor sports."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as New Kicks On The Block takes on Good Vibrations FC in the US Open Cup.
