Red Bulls love New York Soccer History

In a move to prove to fans that they will not be throwing away the history of the MetroStars or any other New York based soccer team, the Bulls of New York have announced a "Tribute to New York Soccer." This tribute will take place before the home opener next weekend.

There will be many members of the New York Cosmos in attendance, include Pele.

"You can't move forward without respecting the past, and so we're going to celebrate the rich soccer tradition that is such a vital part of the New York metropolitan area," said Red Bull New York President and General Manager Alexi Lalas.

Others players that will attend include: Franz Beckenbauer, Shep Messing, Giorgio Chinaglia, Carlos Alberto Torres, Hubert Birkenmeier, Andranik Eskandarian, Vladislav Bogicevic, Werner Roth, Freddy Grgurev, Erhardt Kapp, Wim Rijsbergen, Julio Cesar Romero, Boris Bandov, Jorge Siega, Nelsi Morais, Roberto Donadoni, Giovanni Savarese, Peter Vermes, Mark Semioli, Rhett Harty, Miles Joseph, Brian Kelly, and Jimmy Rooney.

These players will also be on-hand at the Red Bull Energy Station- a unique, two-story structure that serves as an oasis for season ticket holders to mingle.

I must say, the Reds are setting a good example. Between this and the bus trip to DC for Sunday's season opener, they are letting it be known that they don't want to loose Metro fans.
