Our last post regarding the possible names for Philadelphia's professional soccer team sparked some debate on old school/Euro-style names versus keeping with the more conventional American style. There was also the requisite amount of anti-soccer talk, which still surprises me despite the fact that I've heard it my whole soccer-loving life. For some reason, people just love to hate this sport. Not us. We find plenty of entertainment in The Beautiful Game and the culture it breeds, and we can't wait to be part of that fanbase in the Philly area.
Anyway, the time has come to vote for which team name you want to be on the 2010 MLS Cup: SC Philadelphia, AC Philadelphia, Philadelphia City, or Philadelphia Union. You can also write in a different option if you don't like any of the suggested club names. Contrary to the graphic, we don't think it's a great idea to vote for every possible option.
Philly.com is hosting the vote here. The polls close at 5PM on 2/6/09.
