Thierry Henry’s bicycle kick goal in the 88th minute to beat the Montreal Impact was like discovering the Holy Grail, if these announcers are to be believed. But the Red Bulls’ star disarmed the hyperbole following the game, merely describing it as “good.”
MLS has a reputation as a second-rate league – the league that, if it gets any high-profile international stars, gets them when they’re past their prime. And that, of course, is… pretty much true. David Beckham was 32 by the time he joined the L.A. Galaxy, as was Thierry Henry by the time he joined the New York Red Bulls of Harrison. Here’s what’s easy to forget, though: just because these guys aren’t in their primes anymore doesn’t mean they can’t still play. Any doubts? Check what Henry does above. [SportsCenter]
It’s a Wednesday afternoon, which means you’re all probably glued to your televisions watching some cutthroat MLS action. Heck, it beats sitting outside in the heat (seriously, it is hot as balls in New York City right now.) But while we may not have been watching the match between the Red Bulls and Fire this afternoon, a wonder-goal scored by New York’s Thierry Henry did catch our attention via various social media backchannels. (Seriously, how many fans show up for an MLS game on a Wednesday afternoon? Especially one this hot? You guys are dedicated.)
Sure, we have our moments in America when soccer fandom shines. Overall, though, our passion for the sport just doesn’t match that of most of the rest of the world. And yet – we can still go plenty crazy over the beautiful game, and those who play it. Here’s proof.
The French National Team is in timeout. Rightfully so.
Thierry Henry scored his first MLS goal last night in a 2-1 exhibition loss to Tottenham last night (video inside).
Thierry Henry appeared on the Dan Patrick show and once again apologized to the nation of Ireland for crushing the dreams of their fans. He also made the case for instant replay in the World Cup. Whazah?
They’ve brought home the World Cup. Now the Spanish are trying to bring home the octopus that predicted it all.
Theirry Henry has joined the New York Red Bulls, signing a multiyear contract with the MLS team and going to the one place in the world where he’s not famous enough yet to draw widespread disdain.
