After seeing Clint’s early celebrations (including the “Carlton” from Fresh Prince), the next video I’d like to see is a Top 10 USMNT goal celebrations of the last 10 years.
TSG’s always interested in supporting those who spread love for the beautiful game, and especially members of the USMNT. So, we reached out to the man at the controls of 723FootballFilms (Rob) and asked him a few questions.
Rob: I’d say I got into Soccer when I was about 12 during the 2002 World Cup. I’d always been a diehard sports fan, so a kid on Summer break staying up at 4am watching the USA upset a World power. Needless to say, I was hooked. I’m not really a diehard fan of any clubs. I usually just support the clubs that have Yanks such as Everton, Hull, Fulham, etc. I do plan on becoming a Philadelphia Union fan though. I felt it was the perfect time to pick an MLS team to support since I don’t have a local team.
TSG: Why is Jozy Altidore your favorite player? (Note: Early in our dialogue, Rob mentioned his affinity for the former Red Bull.)
Rob: I first saw him in the MLS playoffs when he was 16 and he scored a beautiful header. I had no idea who he was. I researched him online and saw that he was American. I’ve followed his career ever since.
TSG: Any significance to the name 723FootballFilms?
Rob: As for 723, I used to be a huge David Beckham fan before he sold out and came to MLS. 7 has been my favorite Soccer number for forever. I just tacked on 23 when he moved to Real Madrid.
TSG: Any plans for future videos?
Rob: I’ll do plenty of videos.
If you have any ideas for Rob or others who are putting together USMNT videos, leave them in the comment section.
