Wave Set to Begin 25th Season

They are one of the more recognizable names in American soccer. They've won a number of championships, and have been represented by some of the best indoor soccer players of all time. Their success has reached off the field as well, becoming one of the most generous faces in the Milwaukee community.

But in their 25 years of existence, the Milwaukee Wave have been missing one thing.


As both the Wave and I look to celebrate our Silver Anniversary, we've decided to join forces. Or rather, I bugged their PR department to give me an internship, and they finally budged. Either way, I'm excited to be even the smallest part of the Milwaukee Wave this season.

A season which kicks off Saturday, December 13th, just 24 hours after this posting. The Wave are one of 4 teams that make up the new Xtreme Soccer League, an indoor league committed to bringing soccer fans a year-round experience, both on and off the field.

Once again, our friends at the Sports Bubbler have done a nice job getting you prepared for the upcoming season with some preview videos. Coach Keith Tozer, injured player Marcio Leite, and Media Relations director Matt Schroeder are among the interviews, which can be found on the right side of their Wave page.

There are ten occasions this season where you can catch the Wave at the US Cellular Arena, and I hope to see you there. If you pick one game to go too, I have a couple of suggestions for you. The Reunion Weekend at the end of January would be a good bet. Or may I suggest this weekend's home opener, where they are giving away free hot dogs?

I don't know what's sadder, the fact that you didn't deem the Milwaukee Wave "coverage-worthy" until you got an internshipm (why bother including that in the article), or the fact that you begged for an internship with the Milwaukee Wave in the first place.

Why not skip all the banal resume-building details & let us know when you're fetching bottled water & painkillers for Anthony Witadro?

Yeah, Kevin is pretty much a pompous douche and I bet his blog is way better too.......

I've written about the Wave before, I don't see where the complaint is.

As for the internship, I thought I'd add that in because it will be the focus of an upcoming article.

Are there people being forced to read this blog against their will? I don't understand why people come here if they hate what I write so much.

To each their own.

Listen ladies, the bottom line is that it's THE WAVE. No one really gives a s--t. Why don't you write a hot stove article or something?
