opening night
what i watched last week

quakes opener: the result

The home side won, 1-0, and played some entertaining soccer in the process. They have some speedsters on the roster this season, and while the jury is out on how that speed will translate into results, the entertainment angle should be covered. We were especially taken with Marvin Chávez, a 5’5” winger from Honduras. Now I know why he is called “El Hijo del Viento” (son of the wind).

But the most memorable part of the evening came when I browsed through the game program and found this:
