Name's Chris White, you can call me UZ. That's pronounced "ooze", not uhz, uzi or you-zee. Old high school nickname, don't ask.
I write about soccer, mostly. I'm the managing editor of Burgundy Wave, our home for the Colorado Rapids. I also occasionally throw down some words elsewhere on the internets as well.
In addition to being a noted football enthusiast, I also enjoy just about every other sport out there. Except Cricket. I still have absolutely no clue how that is supposed to work.

Steward Ceus needs to be jettisoned immediately, lest we have to suffer through another appearance in case of emergency. Who should replace him? Perhaps that future legend we saw in the preseason.
