Philadelphia Union's Danny Califf and Sebastian Le Toux Can(Foot)Ball

Just four guys. Having a bunch of skyward moments together.
What's a Major League Soccer player to do now that it's the off-season? Well if Jurgen's not sending you abroad then you've got some time to kill.

For the Philadelphia Union's Danny Califf and Sebastian Le Toux it was hanging out with the other football's Eagles and their punter and kicker for "Eagle's Confidential".

The Union teammates faced off against the bizarrely similarly-named Alex Henery (K) and Chas Henry (P) for a little cross-sports contest of skillz at PPL Park. PKs, field goal kicking, punting, and the "French national sport of soccer golf" (according to LeToux) were the order of the day.

Best part? Other than Le Toux nailing a monster field goal, he makes a PK save on one of the Eagles and screams out in his hilariously stereotypical French accent, "It's right here! Like an interception in football!"

Although the Eaglie punter Henry did get a good burn in on LeToux before his first field goal attempt. "French on the front lines? That's a first."

And how did Califf fare? Let's just say... his partner carried the two-some most of the afternoon.

In the end (and not that we're biased) it looked as though the Union pair got the best of the pointy-ball partners from the Eagles.

The full video is here. The Union/Eagles segment is the first one.

    Not to sell my Blue and Gold short, but I think anyone could get the best of the Eagles this season.

  2. How many yards out was LeToux's field goal??

  3. About 50 yards. Not sure how many meters that would be for Le Toux...
