The Bull Prophet


MLS Aces Blogger

Hi guys I’m the Bull Prophet. I hail from the DFW area in Texas and I like soccer… probably too much. I married the most beautiful woman in the world and no one can tell me different, I’ve got an adorable kiddo that drives me up the wall and I’m a huge FC Dallas and Chelsea fan which feels like living with split personalities (outside of this season of course). I attempt just about as well as anyone else to keep my personal bias’ to myself. I have previously written about the lower tiers of American Soccer, but love the sport as a whole. When you open any of my articles expect crudely silly criticisms, hope for a future for the sport as a whole and occasionally some bullshit predictions.
