While I usually need no excuse to head into NYC and down a few pints, this past Satuday I had best excuse of the year. That's right! If it's December, it means it's time to celebrate the great You Suck Corrales' birthday. A few of us got together at The Dublin House, on Manhattan's upper west side, to drink up in honor of the greatest Red Bulls fan ever. Thanks to some quick thinking by the great Matt Conroy (aka Who Shot Sam), we even managed to get our hands on the stunning, brand spanking new, 2012 RBNY Home shirt, which we presented to the great man as his birthday gift (a few more pics here).
The best part of the night was walking into a great Australian restaurant called The Sunburn Calf and running into this guy (I believe his name was Juan Carlos), sitting with a group right next to our table. It turns out he's a YSC fan/Viper's Nest reader. He even demanded more regular-basis content on this site. I'm telling you, it was not only surreal, but inspirational! We're gonna really try, dude (ha, ha). Anyway, I can't f'ng wait til March 25th, so we can do it all over again @The Cathedral of Football, Red Bull Arena (built by Makita). Viper Out!
