Marquez Keeps Good, Comely Company at New York Fashion Week


For those that don't know, New York Fashion Week is one of the most outlandish displays of couture consumerism and red-carpet exclusivity the world has ever seen. It's a showcase for the most talented, connected and chi-chi designers and labels in existence (and recently it's started challenging CMJ as the premier music event in NYC).

It is also the place people far more fabulous than you or I go to and be seen being far more more fabulous than you or I. For an example, see MLS' own Rafa Marquez (which still sounds weird as hell to say) ballin' outta control in the front row of the Luca Luca show yesterday. Who are his fellow fashionistas seated beside him? (From L to R) Kristin Cavallari (The Hills), model Petra Nemcova, actress/model/Mrs. Howard Stern Beth Ostrosky, soul singer Debra Cox and singer/Junior Beyonce Solange Knowles. Not bad (or bad looking) company.

Finally, at long last it looks like we have a challenger for Clint Mathis' title of MLS' Socialite King of New York. And it's about damn time.

You NY fans make me sick. Rafa Fucking Marquez. Tim Howard would disown you.

Just trying to make the best of a bad situation. And I'm sure Timbo understands that if your team is trying to be bigtime, your may have some international players that you aren't too cool with. It's a good problem to have.

I think it is something a lot of MLS fans will have to struggle with in the coming years as the league grows. Still as a US and a Galaxy fan, I don't think I'd ever be able to cheer for Rafa Marquez after what he did to Cobi and Timmy, and for just being every USMNT fan's most hated Mexican soccer player for the past 10 years or so. NY fans are basically selling their souls to the devil just for the hope of winning something besides the La Manga Cup. You'd probably cheer for Torsten Frings if he was a Red Bull

US and RBNY supporter here. Happy to have Rafa on board. I have no problem separating club from country.

And I don't need Tim Howard's blessing, either.

Sorry if you don't like it.

Rafael looks thrilled to be there.
