Charlie Davies: Sports Illustrated & Stanky Leg Statements
Looking healed and happy to be making his highly-anticipated return to the U.S. soccer scene, D.C. United’s on-loan lad, Charlie Davies, is featured in the newest issue of Sports Illustrated - in which he says he’s come full circle since his horrific October 2009 car accident.
“Will I be sad? Happy? Nervous? If I score a goal, will I break down and cry? Will that signal [my] getting over the mountaintop? Will I dance? Yes, I will dance.”
Will he be too nervous to get dressed that day? We sure hope so.
In order to quiet our insatiable internal queries, we decided to seek clarification direct from the man himself:
“I’m going to have something up my sleeve for that first goal. Everyone knows about the Stanky Leg, I will probably pull that out again or some sort of variation of the Stanky Leg. That said, it’s always good to be creative, so we will see – it will definitely be fun to watch.”
We wait with baited breath and loose limbs, CD.
