Caught in the Public Eye

First off, apparently the NY Metro Stars changed their names to the Red Bulls. That was news to me.

Well, apparently, a Red Bulls' player was busted like Zack Morris on Rosh Hashana, unable to blend into the crowd like the smoother operator, Ferris Bueller on his day off.

"Djorkaeff, 38, was a member of the French team that won the 1998 World Cup and later played for Bundesliga club Kaiserslautern. In his second season in Major League Soccer, he was given permission to leave the Red Bulls last week for "a serious family matter," but was caught by television cameras at the France-Brazil match in Frankfurt.

The New York club issued a release later in the day saying it gave Djorkaeff permission to attend to the family matter, but that he never mentioned the World Cup match as part of his trip."

Stuff like this isn't supposed to happen in real life, is it? Of course, teams aren't named after alcoholic beverages in real life either.

Red Bull isn't an alcoholic beverage.

That's better than Zidane getting caught at a Red Bulls' match. Now that would be embarrassing.
