Columbus Crew’s Robbie Rogers: Champion

i-5b880b7072413013c8ed946baf0726bf-08111012180_1.jpgThe most amazing thing about this snapshot is it’s only two years off in foreshadowing the champion in the picture.

This is the South Bay Gunners 11 years ago in a Nike ad (?!).

When I asked the person who supplied the photo which 10-year-old kid was Robbie Rogers, who grew up in Rolling Hills Estates, he said “Far right, blonde with pot belly.”

Is this like your mother showing your naked baby pictures at age 2 to your fiancee? Close.

    You are about right with the comparison.
    However, it’s a funny coincidence nonetheless, even if it’s 2 years later…

    My brother in law, Emanuel Guzman, is in this picture too.

    He’s the one on the bottom left. Hopefully he’ll be in the draft this year. He just finished his senior year with CSU Bakersfield.
