….not through his playing career, either as a US International nor as the first American to star in Serie A. Nor for his Phil Esposito-ish stints as a General Manager on either coast (the third of which came to an end this week, with Lalas and coach Ruud Guillit being removed from their respective posts with the LA Galaxy). It’s not even for jamming with Steve Jones on (the Entravision Communications owned) Indie 103.
the history books have been written offensive wikipedia entries have been edited, let it be noted that Lalas’ most outstanding cultural achivement was playing the part of Stephen Bishop to Non-Metallic K.O.’s John Belushi. Had Olbermann actually done this sort of thing in an office setting more often (or even once), he probably would’ve had more friends in Bristol.
