Sopranos Soccer

American soccer fans of a certain age—those of us who like to look back wistfully on the days before Posh and Becks—may remember Giorgio Chinaglia as the goal scorer extraordinaire who, back in the 70s and 80s, scored 242 times in 254 matches for the New York Cosmos. Others may remember him for his more recent, somewhat less entertaining, antics as a World Cup commentator on ABC.

You see, Chinaglia is a wanted man (again). Read the rest at ESPN.
