I was honored to be invited to play in Audi + Bayern Munich’s pick up soccer match last night in Brooklyn, NY. Two teams of influencers faced off against each other with two Bayern legends on each team. Markus Babbel and Paul Breitner were on my team, and Paulo Sergio and Giovane Élber were on the red team.
Influencers included Kazeem Famuyide (theStashed), Sian Pierre (Swagger), Julian Patterson and Donnie Kwak (Complex Media). Check out some photos of the event courtesy of the good folks at Getty Images.

You’re probably upset that you missed our first ever Concrete Clasico street soccer tournament, so here are some photos from the event to cheer you up. Or they may upset you even more. We hope, at least, they’ll give you a small glimpse into what was a fantastic afternoon. En garde.
Last Friday we launched our American Fútbol and World Cup Winners collections at Philly Phaithful in Northern Liberties. I could go on and on about how awesome the night was, but I’ll just leave these photos here and hope that they give just a small glimpse into what was, in short, an epic evening.
