Remember that young American kid Danny Karbassiyoon who was briefly at Arsenal a while back? He had a dream start to his career by scoring the game winner in the 90th minute of his 1st match for the London side (which BTW would be like losing your virginity to Selma Hayek & Penelope Cruz at the same time), but then disappeared into Championship League obscurity with Ipswich Town and Burnley. Then things really went tits-up when his knee went out repeatedly; dude was forced to retire at the tender age of 22.
So what happens to a retiree who is still 30+ years away from his AARP card and a condo in Boca Raton? He gets a job as a scout for Arsenal. It sho 'nuff ain't the high of playing at Highbury but it's still pretty rad that he's involved in the game at that level.
I was really wondering what happened to that kid; thank God he is alive and well, which is more than anyone can say for John O'Brien...where the hell is he? I swear he is the Richey Manic of the sports world.
