Joe Willis gets a shaving cream pie

That, however, isn’t why I’m posting this image gallery of United goalie Joe Willis, following his first MLS start, a shutout win over Vancouver. Rather, it’s because midfielder Kurt Morsink did such an exemplary job from beginning to end.

First, he pretended to actually be a press member listening to Willis’s earnest answers, from the looks of things.

“For most of the day and the early part [of the match], I was pretty nervous,” was one of the things Willis said, via Goff. “A lot of the older guys talked me through it. By the time I got through warm-ups, I was ready to go and the nerves were gone.”

I mean, that’s a player-rating of at least 4, or 9, or whatever means a really good player rating in soccer.
