Wilderness, it’s a dark day. A very dark day.
It was announced late last night that Minnesota United FC has traded fan favorite and record goal scorer Christian Ramirez for an assortment of made-up moneys that exist to allow teams to circumvent the salary cap in MLS.
The trade makes no sense. Ramirez was having a bit of a slow 2018, but then the whole team wasn’t (isn’t) playing particularly well. He was playing well, linking up with the other attackers...... it just doesn’t make sense.
In any case. I’ve been moping about that for the last three hours. So here’s a tribute to CR21. If you haven’t seen his goals, check them out. They’re really good. I’ll post a few at the bottom of the walk.
