Bryant Park.. No one would recognize him there. He sould have gone up town … or maybe he should have done it in front of the MLS headquaters.
wait he thought Harkes was still captain? talk about a time warp
I actually thought this was the most awesome thing ever. How is it even possible to know who John Harkes is, yet not know he is could not possibly still be the US captain? Fascinating…. I wish he had whipped out a StarTAC phone and somehow used it to confirm his info.
This reminded me of Jimmy Kimmel’s Coachella videos. 😀
Meh. Boring. Watch the NY Mets Matt Harvey man on the street video to see how it’s done.
the best man on the street video is Big Papi asking people for hugs in NY
Donovan is a LEGEND but Dempsey is an ERA.
More kids are more likely to turn to soccer to emulate him than Donovan if you ask me. Especially in the SOUTH
Yep, He is from Texas. The man knows there isn’t a T in Clint.
Euro snobs are know nothings
Donovan vs Dempsey
this has been brewing ever since JK became manager or was it since Dempsey went to England?
I think it started after Dempsey’s performance at the 2009 Confederations cup.
No, ever since Clint outshined Landycakes at the 2006 World Cup . . .
Yeah no, Dempsey had a few moments in the world cup and that is it. That is all Dempsey is, he has been INSANELY inconsistent for as long as i can remember
He is for his club teams but he has been pretty solid for the US for the last 3 years.
Certainly came up big in the WC when we needed it the most.
A few moments in three world cups you mean.
Also a confederations cup.
Also a goal that kept fulham in the premier league.
Also a goal that put fulham in the europa league final.
Also a goal every four appearances for fulham and tottenham over seven years and 260 games.
Other than those though, insanely inconsistent.
picking out a few moments != consistancy
265 games over seven years is a lot of moments.
a LIVING LEGEND and true idol to the next generation of Yanks
I think what they mean is that Clint has not been consistently inconsistent. He shows brief moments of inconsistency, but then slips right back into his same-old scoring ways. You just can’t count on a guy like him to be unreliable.
You’re not incorrect.
Diego Maradoughnuts: that score literally made me silently LOL.
Anything for the King… although it should be said that I didn’t actually vote for you.
You don’t vote for kings. The Lady Mufasa, her arm clad in the purest shimmering moisture-wicking high-performance polyester, held aloft Victory from the bosom of the water, signifying by divine providence that I, GoogleEye, was to carry the trophy. THAT is why I am your king.
I just got an old hard drive working last night and found pics from the MLS Cup 2005 in Dallas. I remembered it was NE vs. LA, but I had forgotten that Clint and Landon were both there!
Classic how it only took about 20 minutes for this video about Dempsey to morph into a Dempsey/LD….debate.
give the people what they want
Maybe because the one guy thinks the US captain is Donovan?
Jack, this was done in NYC. the dude thought John Harkes was the still the captain.
DEMPSEY is the face of US SOCCER
The image we have needed for years. He came from a trailer in East Texas to playin some of the best teams in the world in England for several years.
who could forget those 17 league goals, 6 assists in his last season at Fulham
Not to mention 4 WC goals in 10 WC matches.
if only he could take a better PK
Nope. Everyone knows who Landon is and too many still don’t know who Clint is as this video showed.
The video showed him talking to two people. TWO! Really stretching to draw any conclusions from that.
But those people knew who Landon is
And hey look: Ian gave you a +1. Extrapolating, that means that everyone in the world agrees with you.
If he was better at PK’s, he’d have blown the dos a cero string.
I still say he duffed it on purpose.
Well then he has “duffed” a lot of PKs. Love Dempsey but I don’t ever want him taking PKs for any team I’m backing.
I always think these man-on-the-street videos that try to show how clueless or phony the man on the street is are just going after low-hanging fruit. Maybe 9 of 10 people he approached recognized him but we just see the guys that tried to fake their way through.
9 out of 10 recognized him? Not a chance. 3 out of 10 is more likely.
I was thinking like 1 out of 10
You may be right.
And even that’s generous sounding.
These types of videos are fun. Don’t be a no funnick.
Right, regardless of how many recognized him, I still find these videos funny. People look too deeply into some things, usually the wrong things, way too much.
Who cares of 9 out of 10 people know him, that one guy or girl is hilarious.
Sadly, this was the worst video I’ve seen like this. There was nothing funny or shocking or memorable.
Next time make him walk into a Mexican bar shouting USA.
that would be epic!
+1 I can’t live without seeing this now.
Yeah, I think the people on the street came off more likable than Clint in this one. Just folks going about their day when Dempsey starts bothering them with self-important questions. In fact, they seemed reasonably apprised of soccer — it’s not like they thought Mia Hamm was a Cuban sandwich or something.
