What did our beloved Claret and Cobalt do the evening of March, 10th? They did what they trained for. They did what they most wanted. They did what they are capable of. They “came to score” (The Aggrolites).
After a three-day hiatus following that slightly painful lead-in to the weekend and pursuant international break, it's time once again to take a look at some interesting little tidbits of nonsense from the previous week, as well as to let our eyes glaze over with some statistics. Come now, it'll be fun.
Hey, will you look at that! Our reserves won a match. That's always nice to see. Emiliano Bonfigli (not Sebastian Velasquez, as SKC reported) apparently converted a penalty, and I know at least a few of our players took shots. These non-broadcasted, distant, mid-day reserves matches are difficult to follow, you know.
If you ever needed proof that statistics can be misleading (though still fun), I've compiled some fun stuff here. This, of course, doesn't mean that these statistics are particularly meaningless, but take that as you will.
Our one and only dreadlocked American captain, Kyle Beckerman, is on the list of 25 best-selling player kits in MLS. He's sitting at number 22, and I suspect it might be because all of Salt Lake City has a Beckerman kit. Or, you know, some number somewhat close to all. Small market woes, I suppose. It would be dreadfully interesting if someone were to compare those numbers with salaries. Perhaps that's a mission for me.
