Video: Jozy Altidore on the Glenn Davis Show
I spoke to Wyclef yesterday and all he had to say about Jozy was "that kid is cold"...and you can't really argue with that. At times I'm sure it may seem like I have a mild-to-disturbing affinity for Jozy Altidore. I'm sorry, but I'm just trying to hitch my wagons early so that when the kid blows up Hindenburg-style (and he will) I can say I was down way back when. Then maybe he'll give me job as his official documentarian.
I'll catch every moment of his evolution for posterity. I will be there when he starts his first World Cup game. I'll get footage of him dining with powerful people who'll admire him like Sepp Blatter, Bono, and Obama. I will meet with him late nights in fashionable European hotel bars so that he can relay his story to me with complete frankness over a 5th of scotch. And I will be there when his marriage to Hayden Panettierre makes him more popular than socks.
The Houston Chronicle's Glenn Davis has given me a head start with this great interview with The Boy King of New York & Jersey™ from 2 weeks ago that apparently no one saw. I'll file it next to my rare Reyna footage.
