Dallas, TX - After the announcement of Landon Donovan playing for the San Diego Sockers came to light yesterday, Dallas Sidekicks fan Raymond Gutierrez categorically announced that he was following the Sidekicks and the Major Arena Soccer League (MASL) BEFORE it was cool.
“I know there’s going to be more people paying attention to the MASL now,” stated Gutierrez to The Nutmeg News. “But it’s important to note that some of us have been following these teams for some time.”
Gutierrez waived off the notion that he only followed the league since Donovan came in stating, “Thirty five years of beautiful tradition, from Tatu to Mike Jones, YOU'RE GODDAMN RIGHT I'M LIVING IN THE PAST! You are trying to call me out on that?! Hell no.”
The comments section on Gutierrez Facebook post about the situation turned into a free for all on the MASL as fans resorted to jokes about Donovan and questions about the Sidekicks and what on earth got Gutierrez all mad today.
“I just want everyone to know that 10s of hundreds of fans have been around long before the Golden Boy went down to San Diego and we are going to be here after he leaves unless I get that job I applied for in San Antonio in which case I’m not going to be around much longer.”
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Gutierrez buys tickets to the March 24th Sockers match just so he can boo Donovan.
