MLS CUP: WHAT IT MEANS TO ME – MIKE PETKE continues its series of videos ahead of the home leg of the team’s Eastern Conference Semifinal series with the San Jose Earthquakes.  As the Red Bulls begin their quest for MLS Cup, we explore some of the great stories that the team presents, in their own words.

We conclude the MLS Cup: What it means to me series with defender Mike Petke.  The New York legend is looking to end his professional soccer career in style, as he announced that he will hang up his boots at the end of the Red Bulls’ season.  A fan favorite that plays for this hometown club with the emotion and tenacity that is matched only by the supporters that embrace him wholeheartedly, Petke hopes for nothing more than to ride off into the soccer sunset with a MLS Cup title.

Watch this video and more on the official video player.

    The absolute BELIEF Petke has for his club and fans does more good than 10 Beckhams. That kind of HUMANity that most middle-class fans can share with him is so special and worth more than the superHUMANness of some of MLS DPs. It is inspiring at least to this fan that someone can be so committed and it makes me think of what I hold that closely in my own life.

    I loved that he wore his wedding ring on the pitch; lucky girl. When I was sitting in the Tottenham match, there were 2 older sisters sitting next to me and one of them said she would have liked Mike Petke to date her daughter. How cute is that! I quickly pointed out the ring and showed her his twitter picture on my phone.

    Looking forward to the next step in your career 🙂
