So how's it going Union fans? My name is Joseph, I'm a senior here at LSU, and just wanted to introduce myself as the newest fan of the MLS' newest franchise. Having played soccer all my life, I've always had passion for the game, and a desire to see the sport grow in the states. My hometown of New Orleans though, is like the badlands for soccer in the US. We have no team, no great following, and no real knowledge of the sport. So for the few real fans down here in the south, it's necessary for us to be fans from afar, and when I saw how many of your fellow fans made the long journey to Seattle thursday night, I realized that the Union was a perfect team to follow. Our cities share a great deal in common when it comes to sports. We have some of the most long suffering sports fans on the planet, and we both know what it's like to be in the doldrums for years waiting and wanting something to happen. So basically what I'm saying is that I was converted last night. I am now a full fledged fan of the Union, and will support this team to the fullest. So this message is to wish the team luck, and to say hello to this community of new friends and fans, as I look forward to great discussions about the Union.
