Good news for me AND good news for the QuakesBy: Melissa | April 16th, 2008
If you’ve been living under a rock, then you don’t know we just acquired Jean-Philippe Peguero on loan from the Danish club Brondby. All I gotta say about this news is: Doyle does not f*ck around y’all! This dude is a goal scoring machine! Lessie… 14 goals off 46 appearances at Colorado, 6 goals off 12 appearances at New York, and 2 goals off 3 appearances at Brondby. This guy could probably get hit by a bus and he’d still figure out a way to limp up the pitch and knock one in. Yeah, he’s coming off a pretty bad injury (not from a bus) but apparently he’s been playing regularly in his soon-to-be-ex club’s reserves squad so that’s a good sign for the rest of us. Some youtube clips of our man in action are here. The picture to the left was taken from his myspace profile and it looks pretty obvious our Jean-Philippe is ready to bring some style and finesse to this squad both on and off the field.
And my good news is, I’m off to Coachella next week! I just got confirmation I’m officially on the crew for a techie/art project I’ve been involved with and we’re taking the little buggers down to the festival. Anyone going?
Also, the Quakes announced the official viewing party for Saturday’s Colorado game is at O’Flaherty’s Irish Pub. The event starts at 5:30pm with giveaways and drink specials. (How about jello shots for everybody if we score a goal?) I think a very unofficial viewing party in San Francisco is at Danny Coyles.
