Proud Costa Rican obsessed with soccer and football. Featured columnist for MLS.
Very proud of my Costa Rican heritage, but I did serve this great nation in the United States Navy on board the Mighty USS Mason (DDG 87)—Proudly We Serve.
I am a resident of Brooklyn, NY, but have grown to idolize the great Dan Marino. There are four loves in my life—My son, the Miami Dolphins, New York Red Bulls and Real Madrid. I have a soft spot for the Gunners, but only in the Premier League.
I am as opinionated as they come, but rely on reasonable and realistic thinking to reach my conclusions. If there is one thing I hate, it's overreacting analysts and fans. There is perspective to be had in every event and I am here to bring it to you.
Hey Eduardo, big fan of your work! Keep it up sir, you do BR and MLS/US Soccer a tremendous service, even if the number of reads may not reflect as much. Now that's dedication.
Any thoughts on who TFC will sign as the next DP Payne promised after the Urruti deal? He said he should be on the team in about a week, also he is not affected by the transfer window closing. Any ideas?
Hey Eduardo, I told you I'd get back to you. This is the update on the subject in the Stylebook: Copy editors should defer to writers, and writers should defer to assignment editors.
No problem, Eduardo. Glad I could help out.
Hey Eduardo, that's a good point, let me check with another editor. In the Stylebook it says North American Teams should be written as away first, but also says European sports like soccer should be home first. MLS seems to fall into both categories (North American teams and European Sport). I'll get back to you.
Dang, that sounds like an aggravating morning. I've had plenty of issues with the CMS in my editing, so I totally see where you're coming from. Thanks for clearing that up, though, much appreciated.
Always a pleasure, Eduardo! I think your work's great; keep it up.
Don't mention it, Eduardo! I'm glad I could help.
Eduardo, you are completely correct. You should always spell out numbers above 10 when they appear at the beginning of a sentence. That was an egregious error on my part, my apologies. Thank you for your diligence.
New MLSE owner says he wants TFC to bring in a "Beckham type" player. A famous player. Who do you think are some realistic possibilities?
