So, you’re stuck at home. Maybe you’re working from there. Maybe you’re on furlough. Possibly you’ve simply been laid off. But, you’re there. Constantly.
I’m in the same boat. I’m lucky enough to be able to work from home for my company while this bizarre time in our existence crawls past. But staying away from other people as much as possible is the right thing to do for our healthcare system and to slow the spread of the virus.
But...what if you were quarantined with a group of current or former Orlando City and Orlando Pride players and coaches? What if you’d all somehow found yourselves potentially exposed to COVID-19 and were stuck in quarantine for two weeks together? Who would you want to hang with? With whom would you absolutely not want to be stuck inside for two weeks?
Below are six groups from throughout the history of Orlando City and the Orlando Pride. Your mission is to choose which group you’d pick to be stuck with. We already know that Kaká is the most popular Lion of all time. But are there other combinations of players and coaches you’d rather hang with?
Here are your six groups to choose from, chosen completely subjectively by me because, well, I’m the one writing this post:
- Claire Emslie
- Jason Kreis
- Justin Meram
- Kristen Edmonds
- Jonathan Spector
- Alex Morgan
- James O’Connor
- Brek Shea
- Chioma Ubogagu
- Cyle Larin
- Sydney Leroux
- Adrian Heath
- Chris Mueller
- Emily van Egmond
- Dom Dwyer
- Ashlyn Harris
- Tom Sermanni
- Luke Boden
- Cristian Higuita
- Oscar Pareja
- Carson Pickett
All right, now it’s time to pick your “quaranteam.” You never know what some of these folks will bring to the table, such as Marta with her love of music and her guitar. Maybe some of them don’t speak very good English and you might not be able to communicate all that well with some of them. Whatever your reason, vote for your favorite quaranteam below and — if you like — explain why in the comment section below.
With which of the following groups would you most want to serve a 14-day quarantine?
