The Poetic Game by Michael E. Quigg - combining soccer and poetry

Announcer: In an MLS that has lost its Golden Boy, the landscape has become a wasteland. And with few identifiable stars, the world has abandoned the United States league in favor of David Beckham’s new home: Luxembourgers United FC of Luxembourg and the Luxembourg League of Premier Football.

Forsaken and alone, the task of rebuilding this once mediocre empire falls to … The Remainers.

A rag-tag bunch of the dedicated-but-not-overly-talented, The Remainers have become the only hope for this once almost-but-not-quite-proud soccer nation. They are opposed at every step by the power-hungry MLS Commissioner, known now only as Il Garberino or El Tirano, who, after consolidating his hold of MLS, has declared himself both President of US Soccer Federation and, in an inexplicable power grab, Commissioner of the NHL.

They must be strong. They must be fast. They must learn how to attack without the long ball. They must SAVE THE WORLD MLS from itself.
