Freddy Adu Was Nasty On Sunday, Then the Ref Told Him to Go Sit in the Stands

Freddy Adu was a pleasure to watch for 42 minutes on Sunday at PPL Park in Chester. Aside from an early sloppy tackle which he was booked for, Adu was playing magnificently. He was working defenders and set up the Union's first goal on a wonderful cross. Then the referee decided to end all of our fun and called Adu for a very, very questionable dive inside the box which had Adu seeing red, thus ending what was the best day of his Union career.

The nutmeg by the endline was straight nasty.

Mike Trout joins push in trying to lure LeBron James to Sixers

Mike Trout joins push in trying to lure LeBron James to Sixers

LeBron James to the Sixers. It would take a miracle, right?

Sure, but one MVP is in on the push for the four-time MVP landing in Philly.

Enter Mike Trout.

The Angels' star outfielder, a two-time AL MVP and native of Millville, New Jersey, took to Twitter on Thursday to make a quick pitch for the King. Trout, a well-known fan of Philadelphia sports teams, responded to a 94WIP tweet about reporter Howard Eskin shooting down the LeBron James chatter.

First, it was Ben Simmons tweeting James. That's really how all the buzz started and now the idea is taking on a mind of its own. Clearly, it's being talked about. And what Sixers fan wouldn't want a player like James putting "The Process" into hyperdrive?

And hey, once James comes to Philly, he can then return the favor: bringing Trout to the Phillies.

We can dream, right?
