Red Bulls, Jr. Version
The lads (the redheads, or gingers, as they say across the pond), four of their teammates (Adam, Tyler, Trevor and Zach) and I (as coach) entered a local 3 v. 3 tournament last weekend dressed as our 'closest' MLS squad. Without a doubt, we were the 'best dressed' team in the tourney, but based on the quality of play, we were among the best teams as well. Sometimes, results aren't everything; once in a while, it pays to play 'real' soccer and forget about the final scores. Other teams can run and impose themselves on everyone, but at least we moved the ball and played a brand of the game that was easy on the eye. Well done, Red Bulls!
