If there were a luckiest day on the calendar then one could strongly argue that for Philadelphia Union it is June 23rd. A quick dive into the archives shows that June 23rd has not one or two moments that are highlight worthy but five.
For starters, June 23rd is Union Head Coach Jim Curtin's birthday. Like the club he leads, Curtin worked his way up the pathway going from the Union Academy where he led the U-17s to the Generation adidas Cup title in 2012 to coaching on the sidelines for the MLS squad. Since taking the reins in 2014 as the interim coach and fully as manager a year later, Curtin has guided the Boys in Blue to new heights with the standards only getting higher as success follows.
