Thierry Henry You Dog, You

Tony Parker must be used to this type of thing after dating Eva Longoria for so long now.  You get up to leave your seat, somebody is going to stare at your wife’s chest.  It doesn’t really matter if they’re a random fan or a close friend, it’s going to happen.  So when we see a picture of Thierry Henry staring at Eva Longoria’s chest, we shouldn’t be surprised at all.

Looks like the Red Bulls new star is already enjoying life in America.  Nothing like taking in a USA-France basketball game with one of the hottest women in the country.

Is a Little Interview Preparation Too Much to Ask for?

Last week we told you about soccer star Thierry Henry signing with the New York Red Bulls of MLS. Henry may be 32 years old but he’s still one of the top players in the world and certainly one of the most accomplished. Now that he’s signed and agreed to play in New York for MLS, he’s trying to promote himself and his team, not unlike David Beckham whose arrival in LA caused a brief buzz. The problem is Henry is playing in the lowly MLS which is essentially the minor leagues of international soccer. As a result, the players get minor league media coverage. Even if it’s only soccer and we’re only talking about an MLS player, the pathetic interview conducted by the hosts at FOX 5 in New York was nothing short of an insult. As Jimmy Traina’s Hot Clicks pointed out, you have to see this video of Thierry Henry’s interview with FOX 5 in New York:

Talk about giving Americans a bad name. Is five minutes of preparation too much to ask for prior to having a guest on? Particularly one as accomplished as Henry? How can your first question ask about winning the World Cup when it just happens and Spain won it, not France? I don’t get how this even happens. Truly truly pathetic.

New York Red Bull Lands Thierry Henry

At least New York City landed one of its coveted free agent targets this summer. The New York Red Bulls — who actually play at a new stadium in Harrison, NJ — announced Wednesday that French soccer legend Thierry Henry has agreed to a multi-year contract to come display his skills stateside of the Atlantic. Henry, who is expected to make his debut July 22 in an exhibition match against Premier League club Tottenham, had the following to say in an interview on the Red Bulls website:

“Some people might think I am going to go there for vacation – I do actually go there for vacation – but it won’t be for vacation this time. I’m a competitor and I don’t like to lose.”

There is no doubt that this is a good thing for the Red Bulls and MLS, both of whom will benefit from the publicity and star power that Henry commands. But lets not forget, the once crowned prince of the French national team is now 32 years old and landed in the MLS after being let go from Barcelona for lack of quality performance. So while the hype is now officially on, Red Bull fans better hope that Henry brings a few years of quality soccer rather than just a brief spectacle for the franchise.
