Return of the Yank

I’m back motherfuckers!

(Sorry for the language, that’ll probably be the only f-bomb I’ll drop this entire year.)

Almost five full months after I became a free agent, I have signed with my new club VPS in the Finnish Veikkausliiga.  It is a one year contract, or really a 7-month contract to be exact since it only runs until the end of October 2013 and pays 1300 euros a month + a club provided apartment.  There is also a team option on the contract after four months, so if I disappear around August 1 you’ll know what happened!  If you were wondering, this contract means basically two things:

1. GITS is back in effect. (You don't get that because you didn't play for the Harrisburg City Islanders in 2011)

2. The blog has (barely) survived the winter and will live on another year.

That’s about all I’m gonna write for today because I’m quite sure that absolutely nobody will be reading this blog post.  I’m sure that after a month of not posting anything nobody checks this blog, so I might as well put a few up before they start getting long-winded and whiny like you guys are all used to J.

Now before I go today, I’ll mention that I spent the better part of this winter collecting hilarious GIFs to put as my memes.  Unfortunately, I have no clue how to save a gif and transfer it to this blog so for now you’ll have to just deal with regular memes.  Til next time!

The meme:


  1. Just can't escape Finland, eh? Welcome back, I don't think VPS have a lot of attackers, so you're definitely looking at a first team spot right? Hopefully it won't be a relegation battle either this time :)

    1. Thank you! I'm hoping to have a first team spot, but then again so is everyone else so we'll see how it goes. I can't speak for the coaches, but I think we have enough variation in styles of wingers that I might start games based on situation. If we play games that suit my skillset (ie. big field, slow fullbacks) I think I have a better chance to start than other games.

  2. Glad to have you back!

  3. Here you left the Vaasa pitch last time:

  4. The end of your last game for Haka here in Vaasa my friend asked for your shirt,as a joke of course (kind of) and then I asked where you were gona go next year.
    I didnt mean it as an open invitation ;)haha
    Good to have you here man!
    Gona watch the game on saturday..btw my mate is big Necastle fan and it seems you might be playing alongside an Ameobi brother, so if you could help him score a couple that would be just swell!

    1. Haha yeah I remember that actually. I didn't play with Ameobi, but he didn't need my help to score!
