Turfshoe: CSB time:We used to go to tons of Comsos games growing up. At one of the games we went to, there was a promotion for something like Seal auto wax where Steve Zungul took a penalty shot on a guy dressed in a Seal costume. Zungul lined up and drilled the shot right into the Seal's balls. They had to cart the poor guy off on a stretcher.

TuteTibiImperes: Well, at least that stadium is getting some use after Hofstra went full-retard and disbanded their football team.
FreakinB: TuteTibiImperes: Well, at least that stadium is getting some use after Hofstra went full-retard and disbanded their football team.Their lacrosse team does use it, and they're probably bigger on a national level than their football team ever was. And it gets used for Long Island high school football championships.But yeah, disbanding the football team was a weird move.
Trapper439: I remember being at a jam-packed RFK stadium in 1980 to watch the Washington Diplomats play the Cosmos.
Waldo Pepper: Trapper439: I remember being at a jam-packed RFK stadium in 1980 to watch the Washington Diplomats play the Cosmos.50,000+ people saw the Cosmos (featuring Franz Beckenbauer) beat the Dips (featuring Johann Cruyff) in one of those bizarre NASL-type penalty shoot outs.Good to hear they're still about.That was a great rivalry. Soccer had a great shot at making in America back then and those were National Sunday afternoon games.
