WATCH: Meet Sean Okoli

+

Get to know the newest member of New York City FC, the former FC Cincinnati man who won 2016 Golden Boot and MVP honors in USL. He's a pacey attacking man with the physical tools to play as a proper center-forward. At just 23 years of age, he's still a few years away from his athletic prime, which ought to come as pretty good news for fans of a team that happens to feature David Villa at the top of the team sheet. Welcome to the Five Boroughs, Sean! (h/t NYCFC.com)

MMM, FOOD: Cooking up gallo pinto with Ronald Matarrita

Just because it's Thanksgiving doesn't mean you have to stick to the script. How about some heavenly Tico rice and beans courtesy of the Matarrita family?

Watch every NYCFC goal this year

+

T-Mac's long-range bangers. Villa's virtuosic verve. Lampard's rugged riffs. Crouching Khirys and Hidden Harrisons. The Bronx Blues, who led MLS with 62 regular season goals, racked up so many tallies that even Jefferson Mena managed to hit one. Sit back. Grab a cold beverage. Witness the fitness. (H/T NYCFC.com)

Surprise! Mike Francesa doesn't know anything, still

+

Why even torture Mike like this? Why make him read promo copy for a soccer game, even if it happens to be the fourth edition of the Hudson River Derby this Saturday in the Bronx? I'd rather get thumbscrews than listen to this obsolete oaf attempt to do his usual bloviating and fail in the process. He trips over words like a Deadhead trips acid-- the consistency of the incoherence is remarkable.

Trevor Noah is a fan.

He's down with your favorite team, he likes Mix, and #HeIsOne.

Who is the NYCFC FIFA King?

+

Spoiler: it's Tony Taylor.
