Saw this stuff last night. Awesome. Do you have a clip of dejected Gallardo riding the pine?

Gallardo is at River Plate, not Boca Juniors.

So....A couple of years ago, the rumor hit this site about DCU pursuing Palermo..or, maybe it was just some wishful thinking. And some of ya'll said DC didn't need a washed up striker like Palermo. 'Fess up!

My bad -- it was just over a year ago:

Palermo would have been nice 3-4 years ago, but too old now.

Based on the athleticism and skill he showed on that goal, I think he'd be nice even now.

Maybe, the summer transfer window?

Sign Palermo? Are we aiming to be the Danny Snyders of MLS? I've pretty much had it with bringing in superstars, who are usually (1)over the hill and (2)scheming to get back to their home country or more prestigious soccer leagues. Now, if you could guarantee that Palermo would play like Schelotto or Angel, let's talk....

I doubt he'd come. He was our first choice for DP, as I recall, way back when Beckham was pretending he cared.

Also, I think we've learned our lesson with aging Argentinians. Oh wait. We never learn that lesson.

Thanks a lot genius... I was referring to ALL the Libertadores highlights I watched last night, which featured a doll sitting on a bench. Who's the know it all now? I should have been more clear, but that would be out of character...

Even more impressive than that bike and his ex-gf's is this:

I will always be against Palermo coming to DC. Why? The guy never scored on a consistent basis outside of Boca. He scores amazing goals for Boca; always has, always will.

However, the guy is the Boca version of Gallardo, plays well for one club but not any other. Ever see him get called up for the Argentine National team since 1999? No, because when he did play for Argentina, he stunk it up.

One of my old club teammates who played a year of high school ball at Whitman played for Deportiva Tachira a few years back.
