Benny Feilhaber: Welcome Home
Image via Interview.
Prepare the cocktail weiners and stock up on cheap champagne, Kickettes, because we’re throwing a homecoming bash for Benny Feilhaber.
One of our favourite fuzzy Americans has just signed with the MLS (from Danish team AGF Aarhus) to play with the New England Revolution – and could make his debut this weekend when the Revs take on Sporting Kansas City. Huzzah!
Did You Know? Things got a little hairy with B.’s transfer papers when both Chivas USA (his hometown team) and Philadelphia Union passed on signing the player. Fortunately, and much to the relief of torso watchers everywhere, the Revs came calling in the nick of time. (Don’t ask us to explain the MLS’s weird salary and player selection rules. We’re still marveling at twist off caps for wine bottles.)
So MLS girls – how do you plan on welcoming Benny and his baby blues back to the friendly confines of the good old US of A? Toga parties? Cupcakes? Sneaking into the Revs’ locker room and stealing his clothes? Do tell.
