“Inside the Philadelphia Union open tryouts:” Philly.com

At Philly.com, Kerith Gabriel gives a first hand account of the Union’s recent opent tryouts:

For the 20 minutes we were out there, I once again felt the speed of what I call “real soccer.” Sure, you can play in all the Sunday morning men’s leagues you want, but until you have 16 athletes playing their hearts out for a cause, you never really get the feeling of being in a serious contest – which I suppose holds true in any sport.

This was a serious contest.

So serious, Abel’s dream ended early after he gashed his head open so deep, he required stitches.

Sounds like fun. Can’t wait to find out who they call back in January.
