Kasey Keller and Seattle Sounders down Red Bulls NY 3 – 0.

It was great seeing Kasey Keller last night in the Seattle Sounders opener. The Sounders beat the Red Bulls 3 nil. I can assure you, Sounders fans have plenty more shutouts to look forward to as long as Keller’s between the posts.


Adidas World Cup Balls

1970 – Telstar

I loved this ball. It had a polyurethane cover that felt like it was exploded off your foot when you hit it. Carlos Alberto loved this ball too…loved smashing it into the back of the net.


Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

As the final hours of St. Patrick’s Day continue to tick away I’m sitting here, staring at the cover of the Fall 1994 World Cup Edition of Eurosport. Two things intrigue me about this cover: a) this is the World Cup Edition of the Soccer catalog…how did Ireland manage to sneak their way onto this badass? Could they have thrown Lothar Mattheaus, Grinsy Klinnsy or maybe even Maradona on here? and 2) what the hell kind of defending is going on here? I know it’s a still photo but let’s state the facts…two dudes are colliding with each other, one guy’s looking for a leprechaun in Alabama and the ball is hiding out behind them.

Check out some Ireland memorabilia from Eurosport, TSI, Soccer Master and Acme after the jump

Frank LeBoeuf on Dancing with the Stars

Dancing with the Stars has seen it’s fair share of footballers: Jerry Rice, Emmit Smith and Lawrence Taylor have all laced up their dancing shoes for the ABC reality show. Last week’s premiere, showed another, lesser known footballer (to the American viewer) in the audience…Frank LeBoeuf.

The former Chelsea back and French World Cup winner was there supporting compatriot, Gilles Marini.

LeBoeuf isn’t the only footballer to have been recently featured on an ABC program.

Think you know the footballer who infuriated millions of women?
