Earlier this month the United Soccer League announced the arrival of the Houston Leones (thanks to SLP advanced scout Jesse Acevedo for alerting me). The team will play it’s home games at owner Juan Carlos Hernandez’s Soccer World Center in Richmond, Texas. Because they will be totally in control of their own stadium and because of Hernandez’s close ties to the local Hispanic community, the USL and the Leones expect to be very successful, and I’d be willing to bet that they will do quite well for themselves.
You know, I think I need to become a successful developer with the resources to just build my own stadium. I can’t find a link, but apparently this Soccer World Center is a 17 -acre facility that has three fields including the main stadium that seats 4,500 fans and is able to expand to a 8,000 – 10,000 capacity. I should have something like that for baseball. All it would take is the business know how and years and years and yeas of hard work.
So maybe I won’t be building my own facility, because I know nothing about real estate or construction. But if Juan Carlos Hernandez would be willing, I’d gladly accept a gift of a baseball stadium from him. Please Mr. Hernandez?
Ok, enough talk, it was just an excuse to make sure that the hideousness of their logo is below the fold. I’m sure this team will be successful, but this logo isn’t going to do them an favors. It’s bad…scary bad. It’s haunted my dreams since Jesse first emailed it to me. Consider yourself warned, I cannot be responsible for what happens here on out…
