Huckerby Comes to California

For the past several seasons Darren Huckerby has been a star for Norwich City, the football team that I support. At the end of last season his contract was not renewed; a sad end to his Canary career. Today I read that he has signed for the San Jose Earthquakes, the local MLS team. I am not sure when he will play his first game, but his presence in the team will be a motivation to go and see the Earthquakes play. I shall certainly plan to go and see them when they play the Galaxy at Oakland.

This is the Eathquakes first season back in MLS after the team moved to Houston at the end of the 2005 season. The new franchise plays in the same colour shirts, with the same logos, and the records of the original Earthquakes. All of this seems a little odd to me, but sport is different here. I do not have to worry about supporting a too successful team, they have scored ten goals in their first fifteen games and are firmly bottom of the Western Standings.
