MLS Cup: Post-game Sigibration

Game story.

Highlights:

Sigi’s a winner.

Robbie Rogers on the year with Sigi:

“It’s been a great season. I don’t know if I’ll ever have a season this great again. He said to me “great that I can win a championship with you” so that means a lot. I hope there’s more to come. … It feels great to win it in L.A. where I grew up watching the Galaxy.

Quotable – Crew Coach Sigi Schmid:

“It was special walking out and having the Riot Squad chanting for me and say that they still remember me.”

On his future:

“I don’t know where I’m going to be next season, to be honest. My contract expires at the end of this month.; (I) didn’t want to talk about it during the playoffs, but the last offer came in two days before the last regular season game. I felt that was too late, so I just wanted to get through this and get through the playoffs.”

Aly Moreno:

“It was an emotional moment there for me I lost it there for a couple of seconds because Sigi means a lot to me and a lot to my career. He stuck his neck out for me, I stuck my neck out for him and we’ve won two championships together.”

Frankie Hejduk on whether the Crew should hustle to re-sign Schmid:

“Of course. He’s one of the main reasons why this club’s where it’s at. He built this club to be here today. He had his three-year plan and it worked to perfection. He got all these players together and we made the rest happen on the field. I really hope he re-signs and is able to go back a long time and hopefully they can get that sorted out. “

    An Open Letter To Tim Leiweke:

    Dear Sir:

    I am the West Coast marketing representative for Crow-R-Us. We provide customized birds for your Thanksgiving/Christmas/Hannukah/Kwanzaa celebration. At Crow-R-Us, you can have it your way! Do you like your bird fried, broiled, fricasseed, poached, barbequed, boiled or raw? We can also baste your bird with anything you desire — from Herbalife shakes to the finest port to good ol’ fashun Tennessee rotgut to 100 percent wood alcohol. Also, we tailor our stuffing to our client. In your case, we recommend Mrs. Cubberton’s (our least expensive stuffing so your overhead won’t be dramatically affected) or shredded Galaxy pr releases.

    Call us at 800-2EATKRO for more information.
