Guardian piece about trying out for Cosmos B
I tried out for the New York Cosmos (Pele played there in the 1970s) last week.. I don't think they're gonna sign me https://t.co/YzRVRI9Rgh— Adam Gabbatt (@adamgabbatt) March 30, 2017
I’m not gonna lie, despite being out of shape and not playing soccer past the rec league level, I have mulled over going to a Cosmos B open tryout. Who wouldn’t want a shot at playing for one of the United States most historic clubs? Shoutout to Adam Gabbatt of the Guardian for pulling the trigger and going through the Cosmos B trial process. Did he make the squad? You’ll have to read his piece to find out.
