Messing Around is going to be a daily feature here at Twice a Cosmo where we look at some interesting stories that might not directly involve the Cosmos. Here, you'll find relevant news from around the NASL, as well as the occasional stories from other leagues, or even other sports. We're also going to try to find you a video of the day, which we'll embed at the end of the post.
The 29-year old Alves joined the Strikers ahead of the 2013 fall season, playing the full 90 minutes in all 14 of Ft. Lauderdale's games. During the spring, the Strikers conceded more goals than any other NASL club. They were much better during the fall, allowing four fewer goals despite playing two more games.
The former Racing Santander and Sporting Gijon man announced that he'll be joining one of the new NASL sides, and may join the club in Arizona.
New York City proved to be an absolutely perfect place to host the game, but unfortunately, it wasn't a very competitive contest. Luckily, Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers helped to make us all forget just how poor a game it was.
