English Soccer Team Sees New Level Of Fan Dedication
DAVID GREENE, HOST:
Good morning, I'm David Greene.
English soccer team Arsenal has seen a new level of fan dedication. As the players were sightseeing in Vietnam, where they play today, they noticed a man in an Arsenal shirt running alongside the team bus. He kept pace for more than three miles. Players began chanting: Sign him up.
UNIDENTIFIED MEN: Sign him up. Sign him up. Sign him up.
GREENE: Finally the team invited him on board. One player said the guy had an unbelievable six-pack, we were sort of feeling jealous.
