Thank God and European Futbal

I couldn't agree more. When asked to explain his amazing feat, a MLS player pointed upward.


The [Chicago] Fire rookie [Dasan Robinson] shed former Real Madrid defender Aitor Karanka, and flicked a six-yard header down and inside the far post to give Chicago a 12th minute lead.

"I just thank God. It was one of the best things that have ever happened to me," said a philosophical Robinson after his first ever MLS goal. "I was so grateful that it happened.

In a previous thread, a news commenter bristled at the idea that satanic possession led to horrific acts, because by that reasoning, great acts by people can be attributed to the influence of the Almighty.

Well, one Major League Soccer rookie isn't buying the commenter's individualistic-atheist slant on things. And a fair share of human beings don't either (futbol players especially.)

Dasan also credited watching a fair amount of European futbal which influenced his play on cornerkicks. I wish New England Revolution players would do this, too, because their play on cornerkicks has been weak.
