Good afternoon! It's birthday time here at The Viper's Nest. Today, I'd like to wish a very Happy, Chuffed & Over The Moon Birthday to the one and only Matt Conroy (aka Who Shot Sam) of The Viper's Nest fame, of Talking Bull fame and of Once A Metro fame. Besides being a brilliant man (a Harvard educated bloke, no less), Matt's one of the greatest guys I know. He's also a massive, massive RBNY supporter (mate). Taurine to the core, about the only thing wrong with him is that he's also a big Chel$ki supporter. Oh Well!
Anyway, a big thanks to Matt for making this site what it is and for setting up our lively facebook group (make sure to join the RBNY discussion there). Please see the above video (shot at the Big East Finals) for some Year End RBNY thoughts from Matt. You can also click here for some further observations and thanks to all of you who frequent this site. Also, make sure to follow him on Twitter, if you're not doing so already.
A few more things:
In case you missed it, here's a recently posted, two part video interview with Red Bulls GM Erik Soler, where he discusses his offseason agenda.
Recently release RBNY goalkeeper Bouna Coundoul has accused RBNY management of racism. At least one member of the local media says "absolutely not" to that one.
Rodgers, McCarty, Ream, Backe and Henry look ahead to the coming season.
Fomer Baby Bull Conor Chinn has landed with the Rochester Rhinos of the USL Pro League.
Old School MetroStars will be happy to know that Gerson Echeverry has just been named Men's Soccer Head Coach at Seton Hall University.
The Red Bull Arena grounds crew is currently prepping the pitch for the coming season.
And last, here's a holiday video from the finest football team, the world has ever seen.
That's all for now! See you all soon @The Cathedral of Football, Red Bull Arena (built by Makita). Viper Out!
