USA Today story on the opening of the National Soccer Hall of Fame

Soccer it to 'em

Guess who attended the grand opening celebration of the National Soccer Hall of Fame and Museum the other week up in Oneonta.

Right. Our own Staten Island member of said Hall, Jack Hynes.

And he was there with some pretty impressive folks too, from current stars Tony Meola and Eric Wynalda of the U.S. National Team and also of the MLS and Mary Harvey, a goalkeeper for the U.S. team that won the inaugural Women's World Cup in 1991 and the gold medal at the 1996 Olympic Games, to James Hamilton, chairman of the U.S. Soccer Federation, and his colleague Hank Steinbrecher, to Hall of Famers Walt Bahr (whose two sons, Matt and Chris, used their soccer skills to become star kickers in the NFL), Duke Nanoski, Len Oliver, George Brown (whose dad played in the first World Cup in 1930), and Gene Olaff (who's always there when Jack is!).

And while the whole ceremony - complete with speeches, entertainment by The Lion King's Jason Raize, an Oneonta native, chosen dignitaries kicking soccer balls through a museum atrium and even a sky-diving team, the best part, of course, was seeing pictures of himself hanging there amidst the other great ones!
