And so, the death march drags on...to the new BBVA Compass Stadium. Is Tom Anselmi fired yet? (Photo by Bob Levey/Getty Images)
"Are you there God? It's me, Lewis...and I have a message for you.
YOU'RE AN IDIOT!
Look, big guy I understand why you let bad things happen to good people, and I certainly know why you let bad things happen to me.
But my problem is you let good things happen to bad people! "
- Lewis Black, on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart (9/17/2003)
I swear, we've got to be living in some sort of Machiavellian comedy: we're changing managers and direction at whim, with a man at the helm who now clearly shows he doesn't give two shits about the team or even the game itself (and at the same time is still in line for a promotion, for some mind boggling reason), but yet here we still are -- writing and blogging about this team we still believe in somehow.
We go away for three weeks for an international break, and then all hell breaks loose...Danish rumours, and nightclub fights. All while there's a season still going on. It's really a testing time for us all -- but hey, at least you'll always have WTR Live to keep you entertained during the matches!
For your reading pleasure, we've got James' detailed breakdown of the Dynamo in two parts (something that perhaps maybe Paul Mariner should bother himself with reading, it's that damned good), Duncan desperately trying to find some positives for Sportsnet (and failing), and his preview for this game here, and finally, a classic song. as always -- see if you can prove yourself Smarter Than Preki with our infamous prediction game for great prizes!
The Live screen is just past the jump -- so join us starting at 8:30pm ET for pre-game chatter, and stay with us for live commentary during the game (and follow along with your favourite mobile devices with the CiL apps) -- and as always, we'd love to hear from you!
