Philadelphia Union washout Freddy Adu is still playing soccer. At the ripe age of 25, Adu signed for his 11th club in 11 years in his eighth different country last weekend. The club: KuPS in rural Finland, a club that never saw Adu play in person before it signed him. Sounds about right.
But what really matters is that during his official introduction in Kuopio, his entry to the sparsely populated press conference was preceded by a cock crow. You know, like it was back on ma and pa’s farm. In the good old days. I can find no evidence of the rooster being involved with the club in any way, which of course. Also, please note the press officer’s red pants. OK? Noted.
Adu proceeds to sit through six minutes of presumably unintelligible Finnish before uttering his first words: “Thank you very much. It’s good to be here.” Indeed.
