Comedian, table tennis aficionado and soccer-loving ’30 Rock’ actor Judah Friedlander sat down in front of the camera this week to tell the true story of a coach’s sneaky substitution.

Friedlander goes back into the archives to remind us how coach (then New York Metrostars coach, now Egypt national team manager) Bob Bradley took advantage of a loophole in MLS rules to gain an advantage against DC United.

    YEAH BABY! I remember that. I couldn’t believe that Bob Bradley at the time actually did that & when Eddie Gaven scored it was awesome.

    But it was a lot better when they did to DC United. :P

  2. Clampdown says:

    Ha. I remember that.

    Man, MLS has had some really weird rules down the years (and is some cases, it still does).

  3. MetroScum Then, RedBullScum Now says:

    It certainly helped Metro win a trophy. Oh, wait…
