This past week I was conversing with an international student from China and the idiot inside me decided to ask him if the Chinese celebrated Thanksgiving. Yup, I am really good at putting my foot in my mouth, making me the most ethnocentric American pig this holiday season. With that in mind, I decided it would be a good time to reflect on the things in which I am appreciative of.
1.) RBNY winning the 2015 Supporter's Shield
So 2013 was a good year for New York, yet many will argue that 2015 was even better. After a townhall meeting straight from a Michael Bay film, Ali Curtis and company were able to bring RBNY some silverware. Props to the A-Man and J-Dog.
2.) Luis Robles winning MLS Goalkeeper of the Year
I said this once and I'll say it again. If Rimando or Ousted won this, MLS would have dedicated a 30 min documentary on how they made it in the world of professional football. Robles is too humble though.
3.) Jesse Marsch winning MLS Coach of the Year
Rick Springfield, stay away from Kim Marsch. Don't worry Jesse, I got your back. We won't let that Australian Zoot knockoff take our coach's wife. I believed in you since day one Jesse, thanks for boosting my self-respect.
4.) The New York Mets becoming a Professional baseball team
They finally did it. The minor league club finally made their way into Major League Baseball this year.
