    Wow, that’s what I am talking about! It is a perfect team to open the arena. This is special because Santos is the original club of Pele.

    ‘s been a while since NY Red Bulls started and they’re still doing great amidst the new coach and David Beckham being in the league as well. I personally think that David Beckham’s contract with the other team (LA Galaxy) is too overpriced – I mean, he’s good and all, but I saw better players in the league that earns lesser than what he has on his contract.

    As for the NY Red Bulls, I hope they’ll push through and promote soccer in this country!
