It did not take me long to fill out and submit my vote for the Fútbol de Primera Player of the Year Award this year. Being that it was a World Cup year, the culmination of four years worth of hard work means shining in Brazil this past summer is the overwhelmingly dominant requirement for mention on my ballot. I will not go the full extent of calling it a World Cup-only trophy, but it is what it is, and we all know not to pretend otherwise.
Is it possible I can tab the winner at the top of my ballot for a third straight year? Is that even allowed? Because my guy this year has never won one of these.
1 - Tim Howard
2 - Jermaine Jones
3 - DaMarcus Beasley
