Snorting the Endline - Jason Kreis and the Eyeball

A long, long time ago we tried to start a soccer website; thought we were writers or something....

It was called "Snorting the Endline" named after Robbie Fowler's infamous goal celebration and one of our favorites of all-time. That site failed miserably. I mean who would want to read our ramblings!?!?!

The name, however, will live on in a new feature we're bringing to the Free Beer Movement. American soccer culture is just as much about what happens on the field and some of the greatest contributions to this culture are the creative celebrations that occur during the aftermath of scoring a goal. Some are premeditated while others are spur-of-the-moment.

We want to capture all of them in recognition of their contribution to American soccer culture. Welcome to "Snorting the Endline."


Today's edition comes from not a player, but a coach, Real Salt Lake's Jason Kreis. Against the New England Revolution Kreis saw his squad go down a man and a goal early in yesterday's match due to some pretty atrocious officiating. RSL managed to crawl back though some controversy of their own (another questionable penalty call) and a late Fabian Espindola goal.

When Espindola grabbed the 83rd minute equalizer Kreis had little sympathy Revs and coach Steve Nicol giving their bench a "single tear" mixed with the "contact lens pull" taunt.

Before their  CONCACAF Champions League Final loss earlier this year Kreis said, "We're not here to weather the storm; We're here to be the storm."

Looks like the RSL front man is stirring the pot again.
