We're less than two weeks away from our big bash at Smith's Restaurant and Bar in Rittenhouse for The700Level meetup and Flyers game watch party. Most of the Level crew will be in attendance, so be sure to come on out on January 23rd to enjoy a few cold beers and a chance to tell us in real life how much you love soccer and the Sixers. The Flyers game will be on many of their 11 televisions, so you can watch that the entire time if you're averse to having conversations with other humans in real life. It's okay. We know. You read sports blogs.
As for the comment of the week and winner of a $25 gift card to Smith's we're going to go with Turbo Timmy mostly because he talks about our old friend Rev on The Evster's post about the best/worst feelings in sports. We miss that guy.
My good friend and 700 Level contributor @rev215 used to play on our indoor soccer team. He didnt care about scoring, nutmegging dudes or any other slick maneuvers. He told me all he wanted to do was to lead the league in cleverly weighted passes/throughballs that resulted in the the guy he was passing to giving him a nod, or a quick thumbs up or a little mini clap above his head as to say, “yo, good idea”. @rev215 didnt even care if the pass got there or not. It could have rolled out of bounds, been intercepted/cleared by a fat chick or been scooped up by the goalie but as long as the concept/vision for the pass was there and rev got his props in the form of a thumbs up, thats all needed.
See you kids next next Thursday.
