MOST COMMENTED

[VIDEO] If Frenchman Thierry Henry takes his scoring chances like he handles batty questions, he'll be scoring lots of goals for the New York Red Bulls.

Rosanna Scotto, co-host of “Good Day New York,” got the Fox 5 morning show segment on Henry off to a flying start when she asks him, "So, OK, so you just won the World Cup, right?"

"Not just. I did," Henry deftly responded. "Last one we didn't ..." (Needless to say, Henry doesn't go into the French debacle in South Africa.)

Almost as brilliant as Henry's response was the expression on his face as Scotto opened the segment with Greg Kelly by cautioning that "somethings don't translate, so you got to be careful," as if to expect that the Frenchman, fluent in English after playing eight years in the English Premier League, wouldn't understand what they were saying.

Far from it ...

    That was painful to watch! How can two MEDIA people living in the most cosmopolitan city in the world come off as the most provincial of bumpkins? They should be ashamed of themselves but they look like the types who don't understand that word. Actually I felt embarrassed that a world class player had to endure such stupidity in our country.

    That was so painful to watch! Isn't there preparation time for interviews now days?

    New York may be Henry's favorite city, but DC would have been a better fit. The local media aren't so ignorant regarding multi-cultural issues...including international sports.

    Those two are a disgrace to news professionals everywhere. You don't have to be a soccer afficionado to interview Henry. It's their job to have a bare minimum of facts about the people they talk to. 80% of the world's population watched the World Cup but these two supposedly educated newscasters have no idea what is is and what the outcome was. Unbelievable. They belong working for a tabloid paper.

    James and Karen said all their is to say. This interview was like watching a horror movie. I was embarrassed for him and disgusted with those idiot newscasters.

    Henry appeared for a minute or two in a BBC/PBS series on the british royals. At one of her functions the Queen is meeting Arsenal and Henry as the team capitain introduces a series of his team mates to Elizabeth telling a bit about each player. Inspite of his youth at the time he looks like much better talk show host material than our New Yorkers. Of course given the venue, Buckingham Palace, he did not do the giggling schtick (are they all on drugs?) that we expect to see on AM TV.

    Well said James.. and to have the one of the most controversial goals being replayed and replayed... geez.. embarrassment.

    Thierry Henry is so intellectually superior to the "See Spot run" caliber on Fox that it's almost funny to see him have to deal with those buffoons. I know that Fox Soccer Channel has a relationship with MLS, but even they still can't pronounce Wolyniec. Memo to MLS press people, ESPN covers MLS too and the know football!

    They sound as polished as our ESPN commentators for the World Cup.
