Wave Set to Begin 25th Season

Bleacher Report Senior Analyst IDecember 12, 2008

They are one of the more recognizable names in American soccer. They've won a number of championships, and have been represented by some of the best indoor soccer players of all time.

Their success has reached off the field as well, becoming one of the most generous faces in the Milwaukee community.

But in their 25 years of existence, the Milwaukee Wave have been missing one thing.


As both the Wave and I look to celebrate our Silver Anniversary, we've decided to join forces. Or rather, I bugged their PR department to give me an internship, and they finally budged. Either way, I'm excited to be even the smallest part of the Milwaukee Wave this season.

The season kicks off Saturday, December 13th, just 24 hours after this posting. The Wave are one of four teams that make up the new Xtreme Soccer League, an indoor league committed to bringing soccer fans a year-round experience, both on and off the field.

Once again, our friends at the Sports Bubbler have done a nice job getting you prepared for the upcoming season with some preview videos.

Coach Keith Tozer, injured player Marcio Leite, and Media Relations director Matt Schroeder are among the interviews, which can be found on the right side of their Wave page.

There are ten occasions this season where you can catch the Wave at the US Cellular Arena, and I hope to see you there.

If you pick one game to go to, I have a couple of suggestions for you. The Reunion Weekend at the end of January would be a good bet. Or may I suggest this weekend's home opener, where they are giving away free hot dogs?
