Frankie Watch: Our Man is on the Move

Major League Soccer held their "re-entry" draft which sounds more like something NASA would do, but whatever. MLS veterans released from their clubs have a chance to get drafted by other clubs and negotiate career-saving contracts. Players like Juan Pablo Angel, Jeff Cunningham and, one, FRANIE HEJDUK were chosen by new clubs. Hejduk was released by the Columbus Crew, among others, at the conclusion of the playoffs.

Originally Mr. "Future FBM Spokesperson" was selected by another Midwestern hell-hole, Sporting Kansas City, but after some wheeling-and-dealing the Free Beer Captain landed in Los Angeles with former USMNT coach, and Frankie career-maker, Bruce Arena.

MLS must have arranged some sort of "lifetime achievement award" for Hejduk for the former National Teamer. An avid surfer Hejduk now gets to set up shop near the beaches of SoCal.

Surfers... keep an eye out for this guy hittin' the waves with a brew in hand.

  1. Frankie in LA just works. He's the new Cobi (not to be confused with Kobe).

    But, for now, it's the off-season. So enjoy the off-season Mr. Hejduk, and could someone get this guy a beer and choice waves, STACKED!
