Albuquerque, NM - Camping equipment purchased for a loosely planned late June trip to the Red River area is, reportedly, a constant reminder of a life before New Mexico United for new soccer fan Paul Stephens as it remains shoved in the corner of his spare bedroom and office space.
“Yep, I haven’t even set up the tent,” stated Stephens to The Nutmeg News. “I think I’m supposed to check the seams and look at the rain fly but…… I had a trip to Dallas recently so………… um………… yeah.”
According to friends, on June 19th, 2019 at roughly 11:45 pm Mr. Stephens cancelled a pending road trip to Ruidoso that was supposed to take place after July 4th as he stated, “OMG I DONT KNOWF GAME TIME, DO TRUNK NIGHT ROW.”
Good friend Jacob Evans stated, “We haven’t seen him as much this year for some reason. He keeps on inviting me out to watch a game, but honestly I’m a bit terrified that I’ll disappear into his Instagram posts from the stadium where he is smiling and waiving a flag. I have a life to live! I have a girlfriend! I don’t know if she will accept a soccer lifestyle.”
For his part, Stephens indicates that he will continue with this run of good fortune and fun following New Mexico United around the United States as he indicated his perpetual love for the team he got to know roughly four months ago.
“I’m New Mexico until I die or I get relocated due to work and have to follow the team from online streams,” stated Stephens. “I can’t wait for the game against Minnesota United! I told my team that I was going to have to skip the softball game that following weekend because I’m ttending that one with my frequent flier miles.”
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Stephens realizes that his new soccer friends don’t know his old drinking, softball and camping friends.
