Two games into the Spring 2010 campaign, the K Street Crooks are riding high atop the District Sports tables with a 2-0 record. Sitting pretty with upwards of 264 goals for, and just a measly 1 goal against (a total fluke, by the way), the Crooks, it seems, have returned to their glory days.
The back-to-back victories can be attributed to many things – agile and inventive offense, rock-solid defense, a simply magical guest goalie names Wes. But, without question, the greatest ingredient in this year’s Crook stew is the return of the most sacred Crooks icon. No, we are not referring to Warren Doyle, the masterful striker, or Tony Pappas’s infamous sideline glares (two things we have undoubtedly been missing)- but rather this is something more fundamental. The game changer this season, dear readers, is the mighty pink jersey. Yes, the pink is back. And more vivid and dashing than ever. “You can’t help but feel like a total badass in these jerseys” rookie forward Hasib said. “Chaos has been restored, and all is right in the world again. This is how soccer was meant to be played” a starry-eyed Ferguson added.
So Crooks fans, hide those dreadful orange kits from seasons past in a dark place and break out the pink! This season promises to be one of the best yet.
