I don't know how to put this but I'm kind of a big deal.

For the six people that have already e-mailed me asking that if the "Chris Harris, 33, of Barrington N.J." that was quoted on page A16 of today's (Friday, July 20) Philadelphia Inquirer, is me; yes it is. How many other people named Chris Harris do you know anyway?

I went to the Sons of Ben MLS All-Star Game viewing party last night, and some guy from the Inquirer asked me a few questions about a possible expansion team, and a soccer-specific stadium on the waterfront in Chester.

It was a front-page story, but my quote is after the jump.

"I've been waiting for almost 10 years for a professional soccer team to come here," said Chris Harris, 33, of Barrington N.J. "It would be nice if it (a soccer-specific stadium) would be in the city. But if that (Chester) is the only place they can build a first-class stadium, then it would be OK."

Please be aware that this quote was said under the influence if two pints of Newcastle Brown Ale.
