Freddy Adu -- He's Still In The Game

A career hard to figure out, that's not over, quite yet.

Thank you, that was well worth reading and not just a little bit sad. Poor guy.

Freddy made his first million at what, age 15? Who know if he's made a total of another million since?

Talented player, and a nice kid. Yes, its a sad story

MLS pulled strings to make sure the "kid" from Washington, DC ended up playing for DC United, in order to be close to home.

A lot of marketing, and a lot of hype. but Adu has (had) talent. Although we know size in soccer doesn't mean the same as in some other sports, in Adu's case, I think his lack of size, or bulk, didn't help his game in the pros.
