Disgruntled Polish Striker and What Jon Busch Said

A lot of interesting reading has been coming from the Tribune's Luis Arroyave's lately. First, little-used Polish striker Tomasz Frankowski ripped coach Denis Hamlet and Hamlet's response.

Arroyave also got Busch's side of the story on his post-game altercation with Columbus coach Sigi Schmid. I was too busy crying in my beer after the game to see it, but the two exchanged words with Sigi Schmid telling ESPN "I went over to congratulate him on a great season and he had another word for it." To give a hint, that word was once used by members of former Chicago Fire management after dealing with the man who would become our current President.

As Busch sees it, waiting until after you've ended a guy's season isn't the best time to try to bury the hatchet with someone you publicly shit-canned. It kind of comes off as gloating. I'm sure both guys are a little wrong on this one, but I'm also sure Bakary Soumare, Brandon Prideaux, Wilman Conde and Gonzalo Segares are wondering what the big deal is. Busch yells something worse at them every time he has to make a save.

Anyway, expect a full post-mortem on the season later in the week when I can finally stomach it.
