One topic that comes up over a teardrop-diluted pint when your team’s not doing so well is team chemistry. In the off-season, the San Jose Earthquakes lost two players in the expansion draft: veteran goalkeeper Joe Cannon and attacking midfielder Arturo Alvarez. Both had played with the previous incarnation of the Quakes (v1.0) that went on to become the Houston Dynamo in 2004. Both had their own unique personality that I wonder how much they are being missed in the dressing room.

Perhaps these two free radicals revolutionized the team’s chemistry.
