2006 saw the introduction of the NY Red Bull...Prior to the start of the game, Red Bull management brought out former New York area players...

Before this I had seen a man in the parking lot, long overcoat, hands in pocket, head hung low, just walking alone...I did a double looked like was.
We approached and he was gracious in signing the book. Following him a bus had pulled in and several Cosmos players started leaving the bus and heading for the stadium, and we were fortunate to be in the right place at the right time...
