The Baltimore Bohemians have completed their exhausting, invigorating, harrowing and awesome inaugural season, which means that Bohs co-chief Joe Tirabassi's season-long diary of the team is coming to an end as well. With a keg party, in the rain.
In the latest installment in our running diary of the Baltimore Bohemians' first season as a minor league soccer team, the Bohs struggle to find their way into the win column, but find their way thanks in part to a throwback-y embrace of some traditional Maryland flavor. Contains dangerously funky theme song for the late, lamented NASL team the Baltimore Bays.
Rain or shine, Saturday is opening day for the Baltimore Bohemians, the official upstart minor league soccer team of The Classical. Here, in the second installment of his diary, Bohs co-founder Joe Tirabassi breaks down how it feels to realize a dream, compete with the Preakness' Running of the Toilets, and fear the rain.
We're on record as loving the Baltimore Bohemians, an unique, stylish upstart minor league soccer team in Charm City. With the Bohs season approaching rapidly, we're turning things over to Bohs co-owner Joe Tirabassi for a diary series we're calling (sorry) "Bohemians Rhapsodizing." In part one, we learn about the long odds, long hours, and weird thrills of starting a minor league team.
