My current favorite British boy band One Direction, currently tearing up the American music charts with their debut album, released their 2nd video diary chronicling their time in America today. The video features three members (and a crew member) playing a small game of soccer in a park in Boston Common. Why is this garnering news on this website?
Two of them happen to be wearing New England Revolution jerseys. While teeny pop music may not be your cup of tea, this is great promotion for the league. The guys are known by their fans as being soccer fans back in England, so the fact that they are wearing MLS jerseys, and not English Premier League or England national team jerseys is great. Also, I personally love that they are New England jerseys as opposed to kits from the New York Red Bulls or the LA Galaxy, which seem to be the go to with celebrities.
