Goodbye Dommer, Hello Duka!
On Friday night, Chicago Fire showed forward Dominic Oduro the door and in strolled young winger Dilly Duka. Tasty.
Well folks, it looks like this blogger got what he wished for. As Soccer By Ives reported tonight, Chicago traded the Dommer for the Dilly. Now, as readers of this fine institution of soccer writing know, I don’t usually get in on the “breaking news” scene, nor do I try to regurgitate information that’s already been widely reported. But this little deal is close to my heart, so please indulge me for a moment, will you?
And about Duka, well, I’ll let the usual suspects give you the rundown on him. But if you simply can’t wait and need a fix now, here’s Dilly’s Wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dilly_Duka
Back in November, after Oduro made his feelings known that he wasn’t happy about being benched in 2012, I tweeted the following:
I hate to say it Fire Nation, but I told you so. Well, actually, I don’t hate to tell you so. I’m no fan of Dominic Oduro. And after having suffered through an entire season of his finishing ineptitude, poor touch, and no service with his smile, I say, “don’t let the door hit you in the ass on your way out of town Dom.” Oh, and by the way, you’re going to Columbus (ha). Have fun with that my friend.
Now, for the Oduro fans and apologists out there (I know there are many), don’t be mad – especially at me. And if you haven’t already, read my long-form piece on Oduro from a few weeks back and maybe you’ll see things a bit clearer. But if that doesn’t do the trick, well, c’est la vie mes amis. He gone.
So what’s the moral of this story? The team comes first. Dominic Oduro let his inflated ego get the best of him, and now he’s a yellow banana. However, if he had kept his mouth shut and been willing to adapt to being a role-player on a changing squad, perhaps he wouldn’t be packing his bags for Columbus (ha) right now.
So now that “Mr. Freaky Fast” has been handed a one-way ticket to Columbus (ha), allow me to have some fun at his expense. After all, he is officially the enemy now.
A few months back, the Dommer (who happens to be a laugh riot on Twitter) made his feelings known about those of the female persuasion who reside in Columbus (ha). And let me say this: based on the leader photo in this article, I’m not quite sure what he’s smoking. But anyway, here’s a little sampling of the wit and wisdom Crew fans can look forward to:
Oh no you di’int!
Well, there you have it folks. Hairy chicks from Columbus, it looks like you’ve found your man. And Crew fans, don’t worry, the Dommer may disappoint on the pitch, but he sure is one hell of an entertainer. Don’t forget to follow him @Freakyfast8
But wait, there’s more! Bonus tweet…
