Trickery, incompetence and ignorance -- the tale of a Red Bulls corner kick
So the Red Bulls got away with one against Chicago last week -- their use of a ploy to catch the Chicago defenders off guard, led directly to Ronald Zubar's goal that tied the game at 2-2.

"I really think they're true friendships. When a manager comes to my house for dinner, they don't think twice of saying, 'I want the lasagna Bolognese and the veal Milanese!' I'm like: 'Both?!? It's 1 in the afternoon! We've gotta go shop and cook!' Look, it's much easier to order in or have a bit to eat in the City, but now they come to my house and they're in my home, and it's genuinely done with just friendship. It's not like since Sir Alex retired that I don't want to see him anymore. It's genuine. If I get fired today, I'm still friends with these guys."

-- Soccer promoter Charlie Stillitano on friendships with foreign club coaches like Alex Ferguson, who are regulars at his New Jersey home. (SI.com)
