This might come as a shock, but we don't make it down to the NASDAQ MarketSite building in Times Square too often. Still, MLS was in the house today, along with some pretty impressive company.
The occasion? Check out the tweet below, as well as this brand new video spot produced by the Department of Homeland Security:
Together with Department Secretary Janet Napolitano, NBA Commissioner David Stern, NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly and Congresswoman Yvette Clark, Commissioner Don Garber helped to announce the day's big news.
MLS, along with all the other major leagues, will be actively working with the DHS to expand the Department's "See Something, Say Something" campaign into professional sports venues nationwide. Very cool.
Garber's message to the DHS and the crowd of TV cameras/media on hand: MLS is behind this initiative to keep fans safe in our stadiums, 100%.
Following the announcement the crowd stepped outside for a brief photo op situated just underneath the following display, smack in the middle of Times Square:
It's a good reminder for everyone. If you're out at a match and you see something sketchy, be sure to speak up. It can't do any harm.
