Video: Ben Olsen, shirts and skins

D.C. United Coach Ben Olsen told the Insider on Tuesday that, during his playing career, he never tore off his jersey and went into the supporters’ sections to celebrate a goal — like Josh Wolff did Saturday at RFK Stadium — because he didn’t want “people to see how hairy my chest was.” And while we can’t find any evidence of Olsen making his way into the Barra Brava or Screaming Eagles compound, we have uncovered a shirtless, hairy Olsen. Don’t blink, it’s quick (at the 2:10 mark). On a serious note, it’s a terrific video.
