One of These Days They'll Have a Team, Until Then.... They've Got Cobi Jones

The big news out of the American soccer Inter-Net-Blogo-Sphere yesterday was the former USMNT and Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder, more recently of LA's coaching staff, was named the Associate Directior for Soccer for the New York Cosmos.

This is, of course, a bit of a surprise, given that the Cosmos do not have a soccer team. In recent months, though, this has not stopped the "team" from launching a fancy new website, two academies, jersey, and appointing more members of a burgeoning bureaucracy than Soviet Russia (maybe the New York Cosmonauts!)

We suppose that being able to drag Jones away from the Galaxy, the club that he's been apart of since the launch of Major League Soccer in 1996, is quite the coup for the Cosmos. With all the rumors of the Cosmos potentially become the 20th MLS franchise in the next couple of years Jones must have been let in on the secret.

If the Cosmos end up as a reality then Cobi is on top of a great new gig. The all-time leader in caps for the Men's National Team will most certainly do the club loads of good if they ever take the field.

And until then? Guess we'll just pony up some cash and snag this hat.

  1. Please no Cosmos! This would do the league no good. There are plenty of other areas in the country that have no team at all much less two. And while I'm at it, why doesn't Chivas USA just go to San Diego?
