“You’ve got Robbie Keane. All-time scorer of the Irish international team…a cousin of mine… Robbie arrived [at LA Galaxy] halfway through last season scored his first goal in the first 21 minutes of his first game. His team mates were so happy to have him they filled his locker with what they call the ‘Pleasures of Ireland’. Guinness, Bailey’s and Irish Spring [a soap brand]. Hopefully Robbie’s broadened their horizons since then.”
Obama gives a shout-out (go to 1.29) to Robbie Keane during a visit by LA Galaxy to The White House yesterday.
