After a very bad season of Phillies baseball and the Eagles getting back on the field, Philadelphia’s soccer team the Union played in the championship game sometime in the recent history of the world. They lost and people are feeling pretty much the same.
“We have a soccer team?” asked one person who heard about the news.
“I’m more of a sitting in a dark room and doing nothing kind of person,” said another.
Soccer may not be as popular in the United States as it is other places; particularly Philadelphia where we have so many other teams to help let us down. It’s still a bit of a shock to see how little effect a championship loss can have on such a big town. Had the Union been a 5th place little league team, they would have had this city by the balls.
Anyway, congratulations to the Union on being the first loser!
