New Year's Resolutions - RBNY Style

First off, The Viper's Nest crew would like to wish all of our loyal readers and followers a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!  2010 was a great leap forward for the Red Bulls as an organization and for us fans as well, and we're expecting even bigger and better things as we move into 2011.  Personally, I can't wait to see 2010 end.  For a lot of people I know it has been a monumentally crappy year, so good riddance!  Remember, of course, that if you are out partying tonight and decide to partake of a drink or two do not get behind the wheel.

I am not big into New Years resolutions (mostly because I never manage to follow through on any of them), but I thought it might be fun to provide a few ideas to certain members of the Red Bulls family as we look forward to the season ahead, so with no further ado here are my suggestions:

  • Thierry Henry - I will do everything in my power to stay healthy in 2011 and prove to the doubters that the Red Bulls did not make a massive mistake when they gave me a fat DP contract at age 32. 
  • Juan Agudelo - I will win Rookie of the Year honors (anyone know if he is eligible?) and fill the void left by the departure of Juan Pablo Angel.
  • Luke Rodgers - I will give the Red Bulls a badly needed spark and injection of speed up front, while limiting my legal transgressions to misdemeanors.
  • Roy Miller - I will down a few No Doz with my pre-game Gatorade and have better defensive awareness on the pitch.
  • Dane Richards - I will carry the form I showed in the second half of 2010, club friendlies and and recent Jamaican international matches over into the 2011 MLS season. 
  • Bouna Condoul - I will spend every waking moment between now and Opening Day against Seattle trying to learn how to properly take a goal kick.
  • Red Bull Arena concession staff - I will learn how to pour a beer, become acquainted with ringing up transactions on member cards and speed up service around the stadium.
  • RBNY supporters groups - I will stop using the "pedophile" chant with opposing goalkeepers.  It's not funny, it's not clever and I just sound like an ass when I sing it.
  • Hans Backe - I will limit my use of "in a way" in media interviews.  In a way, of course.
  • Erik Soler - I will move heaven and earth to get the Red Bulls a proper training facility, close to the Cathedral of Football.
  • RBNY fans - I will show up to games on time (I'm looking at you, bull logo people).  If I cannot make it, I will find someone who can use my seats. 
That's it for me.  Any ideas of your own?

Once again, Happy New Year!  Onward into 2011!
