And so it beginsBy: DAS | February 24th, 2012
Anticipation. Expectation or hope. Realization in advance. Intuition, foreknowledge, or prescience.
It’s that excited, nervous feeling you get before the start of something new. The tingle in your gut before you board a plane to a foreign country. The wave of adrenaline as you launch your raft down a turbulent river.
Or the moment you receive your umpteenth Galaxy season ticket holde scarf, signaling the start of a new season. Well, it is nearly here. The Galaxy are in CCL action in less than two weeks and have their home opener on March 10th.
Most of the important players are back. Birchall will be missed, but Sarvas should be a more than adequate replacement. I think we will sorely miss Gonzalez in the back, but we are not devoid of backups (though close).
On paper, we are the team to beat.
I tend to be an optimistic fan. I think our strength on paper will translate to results on field. But that’s the fun part about anticipation. We don’t know where this season will take us. We just know we are excited for the ride.
