Grey skies? Drizzle? Neither. Dave Kaval was spot on in his blog: “that was some wild stuff” raining down on the fans at Saturday night’s Quakes game against RSL - we were witnessing what we now call The Great Deluge of 2011. Just a little bit ironic that he also mentioned our four-year opening day scoring 'drought'.
To commemorate TGD2011 the Earthquakes have commissioned a pin, which is hopefully made from a water-resistant, rust-proof high-tech alloy, lest the Sounders bring more rain April 2nd. Anyone who can demonstrate they were at TGD2011 will receive the special pin that tells the world how dedicated you are to the Quakes.
Amway thoughtfully provided a free Wondo T-shirt, conveniently packed in water-proof plastic, but here are three alternative ways you can prove you were at TGD2011:
- A photograph of your fellow fans that appears to have been shot in soft focus, but really it was your lens all steamed up.
- Examine the lining of your jeans pocket. If there’s an inverted image of Wondo greeting the Ultras, and the March 19 date in mirror writing, you've proved you were at the game.
- Has your Frisbee dog suddenly shrunk? Prove your dog is smaller than last week - that's evidence you were at the game.
