Total MLS' lone Chicago contributor, I could not be less interested with Chicago soccer, unless you're talking about a hairy-scalped Chad Barrett or a shirtless Bocanegra (like success, neither have been seen in Chicago for some time). Somehow not quietly asked to stop writing for Total MLS since 2011, I was very loudly and explicitly asked to stop joining the Total MLS podcast just two years later, a ban that continues until this day. I'll read just about anything by Wright Thompson or Tacitus, drink anything from Peticolas, or eat any food cooked south of our southern border. Don't mess with Texas. Daje Roma. Up the Gas. Forever Blowing Bubbles. #Grella4USMNT.
