Dynamo is a soccer team that is from Kiev Ukraine but played yesterday in Amsterdam Nethlands Ajax where coinkydinky my brother in law and his lovely bride our on holiday. I am watching the 60min highlight version of that UEFA match then will catch up to Mad Bum Lunch in Big Apple.
I think I’ll take a picture capture of Cruyff Stadium from the broadcast and challenge my broin to match in in real life.
But the nidus here is noticing Sydorchuk 5 the midfielder which reminds me of Superchunk my favorite rock band. Sergiy Sydorchuk.
He’s the captain. But its pronounced “see door shook” more than “cider chuck”.
And maybe more obviously is “dynamo v. virgin” by Henry Adams, but I’m afraid to know what Googling “amsterdam + virgin” will yield.
Amsterdam Ajax meanwhile was 3-time European club champions in 1972, 1973, 1974 roughly overlapping with Oakland A’s World Champions of Baseball. And coincidence on the other media portal is or was Little League World Series Idaho v. Barcalona.
Superchunk meanwhile between 1992 and 2018 25 years has i’m guessing 20 albums, plus Mac and Laura have put out roughly another 100 as Merge Records.
“Hyper enough” is the first track on their fifth album 1995 “Here is Where The Strings Come In”.
ok 11 studio albums between 1990 and 2018, plus collections.

And out with soccer highlight.
random addendum to back up something I put on PAW
I might be a little off the mark here so correct me if I’m wrong — and this is based on an article on another local news site — but the 1985 CCS champion Menlo Atherton team featured a game-winning goal by Nacho Navarette who probably still and certainly very recently did a lot of local coaching. I believe I met him in 1993 when he played for the semi-pro Palo Alto Firebirds, who played at Maloney Field at Stanford.
There’s a Jose Nararette who coached or coaches for Palo Alto Soccer club, who played for Canada College and Sac State a couple years earlier who I’m guessing is his brother.
I guess he (Nacho) is being inducted as part of a team and not individually.
There should be a Peninsula Soccer Hall of Fame. Or somebody write “History of Soccer in Palo Alto and vicinity”.
