Curtin Call

First, let me say a hearty congrats to Philadelphia for scoring the Supporters Shield as the first piece of silver in club history. It has been a pleasure seeing them improve year by year, and especially watching them operate this season.

Secondly, I've got a quick little fun fact "Did you know?" for ya: Union boss Jim Curtin has become the fifth man to win an MLS Supporters Shield as both a player and a coach, joining Chris Armas, Jesse Marsch, Greg Vanney and Frank Yallop.

It's a pretty cool feat, and also pretty cool for me, as Curtin was one of the first guys I interviewed as a soccer scribe way back in 2001 when he was a rookie in his first Chicago Fire preseason camp.

How about the third person to play under Bob Bradley to earn the distinction?

You are quite correct. Good eye, I did not notice that.
