Are you a soccer fan? A Minnesotan? Then you might like our book

Jon Marthaler

People of TD.


I've helped write The Complete Darkness, a look at Minnesota United's 2014 season. Allow me to answer some potential questions you might have here:


Minnesota has a soccer team?


They sure do! Minnesota United plays in the NASL, which is now the second division of American soccer. It's the second division that's given us a number of MLS teams, like Seattle, Portland, Vancouver, and Montreal. I've been leading the charge to cover them, along with Wes Burdine (the driving force behind the book) and Bill Stenross (who wrote, like, half of it).


I haven't followed Minnesota United before. Why would I buy a book about their season?


Three reasons:


1) It's got more than just 2014 United talk. It's got two long articles, one about the team's Brazilian core, and a truly wonderful one about Carl Craig, the team's fascinatingly strange assistant coach.


2) Minnesota is the frontrunner for the next MLS team, and if you like soccer, you're going to want to know something about the team when it happens.


3) It's only $12. That's not much. And you'll help support the team of people who want to make fun cool stuff to read and listen to - just like you do with this site.


Thanks for listening, I hope you'll consider ordering.


And yes, I posted this on Wild Xtra too. Please forgive the cross post.
