Today in Celebrity Glory-Seeking
The Union have claimed one of Philadelphia's favorite sons, ?uestlove from The Roots, as one of their own today by lacing him with the custom kit. If this new relationship ends in the annual Roots picnic being staged at PPL Park I will call it a success. But as Chad Ochocino's closet full of custom kits from the Crew, D.C. United and Sporting K.C. has shown us gifts don't secure celebrity loyalty.
And can't NY make a claim to him as well? Dude stays in the city now that he's on Jimmy Fallon everyday.
Speaking on NY there's a celebrity soccer match at Chelsea Piers on Saturday. It features everyone from John McEnroe to John O'Brien, Ethan Hawke to Ethan Zohn and is in conjunction with the Tribeca Film Festival. If you are in town and down to gawk at Gael Garcia Bernal and Cobi Jones you should come through.
