Freddy Adu has a calming effect on more high-strung or volatile people, and an emotional steadiness that others find soothing.
UPDATE: The Washington Post's Steven Goff reported Monday afternoon that the Union asked Freddy Adu to take a 75 percent pay cut if he wanted to continue to play with the team.
Had Adu agreed, his resulting guaranteed annual salary would have been 9,750.
After helping the United States to advance to the Under-17 World Championship, Freddy Adu became the youngest person to play for a US national soccer team and was labelled the next American soccer superstar.
In January 2006, Adu made his debut with the US National Team in a game against Canada.
That's what Darryl Pitts would like to tell Michael Richards, the "Seinfeld" star who spewed racist slurs at an African American man after his stand-up gig at a Los Angeles comedy club was interrupted last Friday. Gregg Pitts, acting director of the White House Travel Office, suffered a broken nose in the Monday night mugging on a Honolulu street and was left behind in a hospital yesterday while the rest of the presidential entourage continued back to D. Then, yesterday morning, as POTUS headed to Hickam Air Force Base on Oahu, three local police officers accompanying the motorcade crashed their motorcycles on a rain-slicked street. ABC, citing "law enforcement reports" it obtained, said someone stole a purse and cellphone from Barbara at a Buenos Aires restaurant -- right under the noses of her Secret Service agents.
