Cha boi (me) in Europe

I have tremendous news: 

Cha boi (me), is going to see cha boi (Christian Pulisic) play in a champions league game between Borussia Dortmund and Tottenham Hotspurs on November 21st, in Dortmund. 

Maybe you didn’t know this, but cha boi (me) is now in Europe. Cha boi went to Copenhagen, smoked a bunch of cigs and drank a bunch of beers and spent a bunch of money, before going to Berlin and getting his head straight. Now cha boi has his head on right straight, and is going to Prague and then Karlovy Vary and then back into Germany for the game. Cha boi has a bit of time to kill. 

I know I whine about this pretty much every post, but I’m a little worried cha boi (back to Christian Pulisic now) won’t start in the CL match against Tottenham. Cha boi will almost DEFINITELY start against Stuttgart this Friday, and we all know cha Bosz likes to rotate his wingers. Does cha Bosz go to sleep every night dreaming about rotating wingers? About squandering talent? About mono (uni?) dextrous Ukrainians? I wouldn’t be surprised. I mean, it’s been a little while since we’ve seen cha other boi (Maximilian Philipp), and cha other boi can be pretty damn dangerous on the left wing. So maybe cha other boi will start in cha boi’s place in that game. Cha lame. 

The reason I haven’t been blogging about cha boi lately is pretty obvious: Dortmund are on the international break and cha boi got spared the trip to Portugal to give cha other boiz a chance. Basically the coach probably thought: Wait, cha douche (Cristiano Ronaldo) isn’t even playing? Then shit, cha boi can stay at home. 

More particulars about the game I’m going to, which, let’s be real, I’m pretty fucking stoked about. My ticket cost 40 euros. I’m going to be not in the Golden Wall but RIGHT NEXT to it. Like, within several meters. I’m obviously going to go to Signal Iduna Park before the doors even open and try to do the whole experience, i.e. beers and brats and wearing a scarf and saying “Ach du scheisse.” Though the beer thing is a bit of dilemma. On the one hand I wanna be boisterous for cha boi, on the other hand I kinda wanna be sober. And actually sometimes I’m more boisterous sober. But also really? No beer and brats before chillin’ with cha yellow wall?

Leverkusen vs. Dortmund Preview: Pulisic is Due

Tomorrow is the day Dortmund are finally going to turn it all around. Why? Because Peter Bosz is basically going to get sacked no matter what, because nobody expects anything from Dortmund anymore, because people expect the world out of Bayer Leverkusen given their record at home, and for a number of other reasons. And I might as well give you those reasons: Gotze is out injured, Aubameyang is going to miss the game with a red card, Marc Bartra apparently doesn't know how to play defense, and Dortmund has played horrible second halves lately while Bayer have played incredible second halves. I think that's about it.

All of this has coincided with what one article called a "curse" for Pulisic that's existed since the US failed to qualify for the World Cup. I have just one thing to say about that: Fuck the World Cup. For now. The US was such a bad team, with so many underperforming players, that it was awful to watch them and they didn't deserve to go to the Wo…

Christian Pulisic's Christmas Present to the World

It's 3:52pm here in Western Washington State, and I'm wondering: What the hell am I going to do for the next THREE WEEKS until I get to watch Pulisic and Borussia Dortmund again.

Well, I figure only a week of it will be really bad. For example, tomorrow is El clásico, Sunday I need to do some more Xmas shopping, then there's Xmas Eve and Xmas, I work the day after Xmas a bit, then a few down days, and.....Jesus, OK it's gonna be at least two tough weeks. Which is why I might have to get the hell out of dodge again.  Maybe go down to MEH-hee-ko.

But enough about me. It's time to look back on the first half of the Hinrunde.

It all started with this:

Jesus. One of the finer strikes of the season. Also, what a beautiful from (I think) Zagadou. And what a beautiful first touch from Aubameyang. Oh, how I long for the days of August. When the air was warm and the girls were walking around wearing basically nothing. Back when I was young and innocent.

Christian didn't…

Pulisic needs to score, I need to get a job

Hi, friends. I'm tired. I flew back from Germany the other day and am still adjusting. I saw Pulisic in person at the Dortmund Mainz game, in Mainz. It was incredible. He was about 40 feet away from me. And then Dortmund won.

And tomorrow, of course, Dortmund play Hoffenheim at home. I wrote a preview for this game on Fear the Wall and I'm a little ashamed of it. Feel like I was trying too hard. But that's natural when you just start writing for a publication. You want to impress. And in my case, you want people to laugh. The key is to not try TOO hard.

I will also be tweeting the game for Fear the Wall tomorrow if any of you would like to follow along.

But wow, Christian Pulisic. US male soccer player of the year! Not that there was anyone else remotely in the runnings. I would be curious to know who the o…
