Thiery Henry has been rumored to be linked with Seattle Sounders FC.
He is good friends with Tony Parker, who plays with Ronny on the French National Team... Oh, SSFCs first MLS signing was Sebastian Le Toux, a French Striker who plays with the current Sounders:-)

Could Ronny put in a good word for the Northwest?

Cal Ripken Jr. has said that playing soccer and basketball have helped him develop as an athlete.


Cal Ripken, for one, attributes
his success on the diamond partly to playing three sports into high school. Soccer taught him footwork and balance, he says. Basketball gave him explosiveness and quick movements. "I think athleticism is developed," he says, "by everything you do."
