They made 2.5 million in the cup run - 50 times their annual budget!!

That's good business right there.
Plus, a bunch of guys barely above pub league quality got to play at The Emirates stadium.  That alone is worth the memories...

Bayonet Jr (#28) shrugging off a defender trying to muscle in on him, and then putting a shot under the goalkeeper for the team's third goal in a 5-1 romp over a previously unbeaten opponent.
This win got them into the final of the tournament, which they won with a PK at the death of the game (winger taken down in the box).

They're both neon green on the outside, and neon orange on the inside.  So from across the field it looks like 2 different color shoes, no matter which direction he's running.

You can see the split on his heel in the very first photo.

There are very few 'competitive' international ass-kickings out there as bad as the one the US is laying on Honduras tonight...

I gotta talk to you one'a these days about seeing if you've got a connection to get Bayonet Jr a tryout at the academy there :)

So last night Bayonet Jr's team beat their local rival 2-1 to clinch their league for the Spring.  They finished unbeaten, only 1 tie, in the highest level of competition in the state (that level is split into East/West to save the parents some driving).

The most-widely used youth soccer rankings have them #4 in the state right now, but they beat 2 of the 3 in front of them in the league over the past 10 days, and they don't play the other one (though we know several kids on that team and there's a chance they meet in the State Cup tournament).

Great season from them all around, and it'll be interesting to see what happens in the end-of-season tournament.  They've lost 2 games since September, both in tournaments, and finished top of their league in both Fall and Spring.
