A Rose By Any Other Name

We now know the three Caribbean entrants into the 2009/2010 CONCACAF Champions League:
  1. San Juan Jabloteh (Trinidad and Tobago)
  2. W Connection (Trinidad and Tobago)
  3. Puerto Rico Islanders (Puerto Rico)
Thanks to this article from Trinidad and Tobago's Newsday we also know that Jabloteh's players have some of the best names in the region:
"Cyrano Glen and Elton John netted first half items for Jabloteh, while an own goal by Karlon Murray helped Tempete’s cause."
"In the 69th, Jabloteh’s substitute Willis Plaza could not divert Elton John’s right-sided freekick past Guillaume but it did not matter in the end as the San Juan lads held on for the win. "
Wow. Expect Max Bretos to call John Rocket Man at least once during the FSC broadcasts. My favorite may be Willis Plaza. How can you not like a guy whose name sounds like a shopping center, or a place you would erect a book depository?
