Home of the San Jose Earthquakes football team of MLS. It's safe to say that the vast majority of people on this planet know San Jose for the Earthquakes. Founded in 1974 in the old NASL, where San Jose lead the League in attendance (till Pele and Beckenbauer went to NY Cosmos). The MLS Earthquakes hosted MLS' inaugural game in 1996 beating DC United 1-0, as the San Jose Clash, a name that Nike USA insisted the San Jose team carry, thus alienating the thousands of original fans who didn't bother going to see the new team. In 2000, new owners reverted to the original name, but astonishingly chose new colors and a new logo. Two MLS Cups followed. Greats to play for The Quakes include Jimmy Johnstone, George Best, Paul Child, Johnny Moore, Landon Donovan, and Darren Huckerby to name a few. San Jose Earthquakes is the oldest name in Division 1 "soccer" in the United States.
Me: You going to see the Quakes Saturday?
Friend: Not till they wear their OG San Jose colors.
