Bobby Boswell Wears Fred on Chest

On his blog last week, between saluting his mother (and frequent Bog contributor Susan) and philosophizing about the MLS salary structure, noted the following:

I am currently preparing for the Chili Cook-Off tomorrow, in which I have to wear a shirt that says "They call me the preacher!" on the front, and "I'm the reason Freddy Adu left." on the back.

This little bit of early-season hoo-hah might have become but a footnote had not Information Leafblower's Kyle Gustafson spotted Bobby at the cook-off, with Clyde Simms to his right and Freddy Adu square on his chest.

Someone please posterize this. (Photo by Kyle Gustafson)

(What's that? You want to know what Clyde's shirt means? Jaxleigh, of course, is "a lifestyle company energetically putting an emphasis on the combining of artwork and comfort. Beginning as a grassroots operation and a brainchild of two close friends, Jaxleigh quickly gained momentum and made its place in the market as a progressive clothing company, offering a casual look, with stylish comfort." There's a little photo of Clyde on the site, with the caption: "Clyde Simms making moves in the futbol industry!" Where doesn't this team's tentacles reach?)

Anyhow, bear in mind that this Boswell Fred on Chest incident comes just a few days after Bobby's mom noted the following on my blog:

I can tell you that Bobby almost never gets recognized when we go out with him in DC. The exception was on Friday, when he was wearing his Ben Olsen jersey.

What more can you say? The man supports his teammates. And his ex-teammates. Which is why I'm currently soliciting guesses as to when we'll see Bobby, in public, rocking the Tommy Soehn Las Vegas Dustdevils throwback kit. I would have said the West Virginia Devon McTavish throwback kit, but at this point I figure that will actually happen.

Please remember that "Freddy" is the man (boy?) on Boswell's shirt.
"Fred" is the Brazilian that DCU currently employs.
I was hoping for a bog-blog on our newest Brazilian star.........oh well.

All the Fred-Freddy stuff confused me. I think Fred was wearing a chili covered shirt, right?

Sometimes I wonder how much fermented cheese is good for a young man.
