The Daily Drool – Epic Bromance Month: Dom Dwyer & Soony Saad

1 Dec

BQZd5ekCUAARdHYWe’ll get back to the Europa League Drools on January 1st but for now, it’s the 4th Annual Epic Bromance Month!

I thought I’d start out this year’s Epic Bromance Month with an undeniable love match. Drool alums Dom Dwyer & Soony Saad have one of the most legendary bromances in the MLS and probably anywhere. Ugh, these two are so adorable that it almost defies belief. Their team, Sporting Kansas City, even makes videos about it! Continue reading

The Daily Drool: Soony Saad

5 Sep

A total Muppet Baby, Soony is a Dearborn, Michigan native and just turned 19 on August 17th!  The kid is a massive record breaker. In high school, he scored a state record of 76 goals in a season and a high school school career total of 172 goals and 51 assists – another record. For those not in the United States, high school is 4 years here.  Damn. In 2009-2010, he was voted the Gatorade National Player of the Year. In his freshman year at the University of Michigan, he scored 19 goals (breaking the record for most goals by a freshman at the school) and set record for shots and overall points. That year Michigan won their first Big Ten championship and he was voted Big Ten Freshman of the year. His brother Hamoody was also on the team. He left college after his freshman year and signed a pro contract with Sporting Kansas City of Major League Soccer. He made his debut on his 19th birthday and scored at 72′, a mere 9 minutes after he entered the game.  He has made one appearance for the United States U-20 team in December 2010 and scored.  This kid is gonna be one to watch! I think all that record breaking deserves a second picture. Go Muppet Baby Go!
