  • Thierry Henry and Michael Bradley appear in crazy MLS Ferris Bueller tribute

    Yesterday,  we didn't know what would happen if some of the biggest names in American soccer were combined with a John Hughes 1980s classic. Now, we have a pretty good idea.

    The handsome, erudite and modest folks at KICK TV have produced Mike Magee's Day Off, an attentive and utterly bonkers tribute to Matthew Broderick's seminal romp Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

    In the clip, Chicago Fire striker Magee bunks training to get up to no good in Omar Gonzalez's dad's car with his girlfriend Sydney Leroux.

    It goes on to predict that a Latin American team would face a European one in the final. When Wotton points out that he could have figured this out on his World Cup wallchart, Dynamo encourages them to listen on to his revelation that the youngest player on the pitch (Mario Goetze) would score the winner in the 113th minute.

    He then signs of "Auf Wiedersehen," which suggests he knew the winning team would be Germany.

    There are several plausible explanations
