Specifically the Americans who write the copy for the promos on Yahoo's home page:
Really? That's like saying Michael Jordan is a famous gambler. It's Zidane, man. He's, like, one of the top 5 football players EVER. Like, seriously "ever," too. Not just the fake "ever" we all use as a verbal underscore.
To Yahoo's credit, the story that teaser directs to is fairly substantive.
Personally, I think it'd be pretty sweet to have the Frenchman come over. He's way past his prime, but he'd be a logical bookend to the story of Europeans invading the MLS. (If you count Becks as a European, that is.)
