NYCFC got a “stadium host” before they got a striker

Womp womp.

MLS: New York City FC at Orlando City SC
Domé doesn’t get it either.

“[Insert random unattainable thing here] before NYCFC gets a stadium” has become somewhat of a running joke among New York City FC supporters. Hell, we’ve also dabbled in the self-deprecating humor from time to time.

But something quite amusing happened today. And it has nothing to do with City’s long-awaited, much anticipated stadium. Well, it kinda does. But not really.

Earlier this afternoon, NYCFC announced Troy Press (no, I don’t know “who’s mans”) as their “stadium host” for the 2019 season.

When I first was scrolling past this post, I thought for a second that New York City had made a new signing right under our noses. I mean, a striker named Troy Press? Sounds like a marketing dream to me!

But alas, NYCFC is still without a No. 9 for the foreseeable future. We got a guy with a microphone though! So, you know, get excited... or something.

Shoutout to Alex from the Cooligans, though!
