There is actually a soccer point to wishing Vicki a "Happy Birthday" today. She celebrated last night with her husband, Kate Beckinsale and Eva Longoria, who incidentally, is married to French basketball player Tony Parker, who is apparently good pals with Thierry Henry. If Barca is really looking to move Henry on, I'm sure he's heard a lot about the U.S. from Parker and perhaps even Becks himself.
Doesn't mean the rumors of Thierry coming to MLS are entirely credible, but look at how a trickle of Argentines to MLS quickly turned into a flood. Connections, like in any job around the world, often convince people to make a move.
