The Ship Be Sinking

Mouth Almighty

Addendum to the last post

On a lark, I figured I’d go team-by-team from MLS and state for the record how many people on their rosters I’ve actually heard of. Keep in mind that I am a fairly rabid fan and also a Football Manager addict…and that a few years back I was a Metrostars season-ticket holder.

(Note: For NY Walking Billboards and Seattle, I am only listing people I would have known before the start of this season, given my unusual amount of exposure to both clubs. I’ve already forgotten about the Dynamo players, so no changes needed there.)

Chicago:  11    (Cuauhtemoc Blanco, CJ Brown, Jon Busch, Justin Mapp, Brian McBride, Logan Pause, Brandon Prideaux, Logan Pause, Dasan Robinson, Chris Rolfe, John Thorrington)

Chivas USA:   8  (Jonathan Bornstein, Jim Curtin, Sacha Kljestan, Jesse Marsch, Ante Razov – who is somehow still in the league), Carey Talley, Zach Thornton, Sasha Victorine)

Colorado: 4  ( Conor Casey, Cory Gibbs, Pablo Mastroeni, Pat Noonan)

Columbus:  6  (Brian Carroll, Eddie Gaven, Frankie Hejduk, Chad Marshall, Duncan Oughton, Robbie Rogers)

The DC Scum:  5 (Avery John, Bryan Namoff, Ben Olsen, Santino Quaranta, Danny Szetela)

FC Dallas: 5   (Kenny Cooper, Jeff Cunningham, Dax McCarty, Drew Moor, Dave van den Bergh)

Houston:  8  (Ade Akinbiyi, Wade Barrett, Brian Ching, Ricardo Clark, Brad Davis, Stuart Holden, Richard Mulrooney, Pat Onstad)

Kansas City:  6  (Davy Arnaud, Jimmy Conrad, Herculez Gomez, Kevin Hartman, Jack Jewsbury, Josh Wolff)

Los Angeles:  13  (That English Bloke, Gregg Berhalter, Edson Buddle, Landon Donovan, Todd Dunivant, Alecko Eskandarian, Jovan Kirovski, Chris Klein, Dema Kovalenko, Eddie Lewis, Mike Magee, Stefani Miglioranzi, Tony Sanneh).  – Holy cats, this team wouldhave been AWESOME in 2002.

New England: 8  (Chris Albright, Jay Heaps, Edgaras Jankauskus, Shalrie Joseph, Steve Ralston, Matt Reis, Wells Thompson, Taylor Twellman)

NY Walking Billboards: 4   (Juan Pablo Angel, Danny Cepero, Mike Petke, John Wolyniec).

Real Salt Lake:   5 (Kyle Beckerman, Nat Borchers, Clint Mathis, Nick Rimando, Robbie Russell)

San Jose: 7  (Arturo Alvarez, Joe Cannon, Bobby Convey, Ramiro Corrales, Cornell Glen, Darren Huckerby [WAT. When did this happen?], Chris Leitch)

Seattle: 3   (Nate Jaqua, Freddie Ljungberg, Peter Vagenas)

Toronto FC:  5  (Chad Barrett, Dwayne De Rosario, Danny Dichio, Nick Garcia, Marvell Wynne)

 

So, out of the hundreds of dudes in this league, I have – at minimum – a basic name recognition of exactly 95. That is not a large number.
