Soccer Social Scene

- @dodd7

The Soccer Social Scene recap is back this week with updates on what some of your favorite soccer players are up to off the field. There was a big announcement out of the USWNT camp. Giovani Dos Santos had a day at the ballpark and, FINALLY, the lego world has caught MLS fever.... 

First, there was a pretty big game out in New York this past week. New York City FC and the New York Red Bulls met for the second time this season and the Red Bulls emerged victorious once again to claim the season sweep against their new rival. 

NYCFC fans were certainly hoping for a better result but at least the new guys seem to be getting along...

No seatbelt Andrea? You avant-garde daredevil you. I like to imagine they are smiling because they made Lampard run to training. #FatFrank

It was the Red Bulls that were all smiles after their victory over the weekend and midfielder Dax McCarty couldn't help but join in on the banter...

Switching gears to the NWSL, Ashlyn Harris is done with DC traffic...

and Wales National Team and Seattle Reign star, Jess Fishlock, gave fans the pure, blissful, unbridled joy that only comes from sending one of your idols into a pit of stale warm water...

VIP Fun with The Reign ... Pleased to meet everyone - Not so pleased with the Dunking haha !

OYO Sports made headlines with one of the biggest soccer announcements in recent years. LEGO MLS CHARACTERS!!! Are you kidding me!? This is a great week in American history.

Several players took to twitter to show themselves hanging out with their new mini-me's...

LA Galaxy's newest star, Giovani Dos Santos, tried his luck at America's pastime. He certainly outdid the likes of 50 Cent and Carly Rae Jepsen but he still has his work cut out for him if he wants to pull a Michael Jordan like stunt in a few years. He also just happened to hangout with Derrick Rose while he was at the game...
