The Athletic: The Rebirth of Cyrus Saydee, Detroit City FC’s Trailblazer

Amazing write up from James L. Edwards III. Cyrus has always been one of my favorite players and always seems like such a good guy. I definitely recommend going to check it out.

“I just love the game of soccer, which is why it’s basically my job,” said Saydee, who’s also a youth personal trainer. “I can be dead tired right now and someone could say, ‘Hey, Cyrus, want to go play?’ And I’d go play. This is what I was made to do. Some people are very good at fixing cars or doing certain things, and this was for me.”

Away Days

One of my favorite things about supporting Detroit City FC over the years has been all of the ridiculous stuff that happens at away matches. Boys In Rouge put together a great list of the some of the best of them. This one is my favorite

(5) FC Indiana away in 2017, literally played in the middle of a cornfield. The toothless, morbidly obese owner of FCI threatened to call the police on City supporters for trespassing, despite the fact they’d all purchased tickets for entry. He proceeded to call said police, but they didn’t deem this particular emergency worthy of their time and declined to show up.

I will never forget that match. Everyone proceeded to play duck duck goose on the field in the rain. That might also have been the first and only time Footloose was performed by the supporters.

Crazy dumb away days are probably the thing I will miss most about the NPSL classic season.

My favorite omission from the list is the Berkley band debacle. Marc from Berkley was upset and posted in their community Facebook group about the loud band playing music and swearing loudly at the Berkley field on Mother’s Day.

The post went on for quite awhile. I have the entire post for your enjoyment here.

I definitely recommend checking the whole article out.
