Tweet, 'gram, like, share…. These are all words in our language that didn’t exist just a few years ago, or which have recently taken on new meanings. Our world is a social world now.
That’s why we created the #MLSSoshies, the first major league social media awards.
Today we feature the last of our four categories of the Soshies, #BFFs. You’ve probably seen the connections the field, but did you know about all the budding (or full-blown) bromances off the field? Nights out, fishing trips, coordinated goal celebrations, and more come out of these tight-knit relationships between teammates.
A few examples….
#GargsAndGordo (LA Galaxy)
Andrea Pirlo, David Villa, and Frank Lampard (New York City FC)
Victor Ulloa and Moises Hernandez (FC Dallas )
Dax McCarty and #Squad (New York Red Bulls)
Steve Birnbaum and Chris Pontinus (D.C. United)
Eric Avila and Brek Shea (Orlando City SC)
Teal Bunbury and Charlie Davies (New England Revolution)
Dom Dwyer and Sydney Leroux plus USWNT and Sporting KC
And don’t forget we’re also seeking MLS’ Most Social player for our bracket challenge.
What does it take to be MLS’ most social player? Read on….
“Whether they’re on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Vine, MySpace or all of the above, they’re just dominating. They’re experts with apps, filters, RTs, and are always up for sharing socially.”
Comb through your favorite players’ feed now to share with us using #MLSSoshies.
You can nominate players in all five categories now using #MLSSoshies on social media. Nominations will close on Fri., Nov. 27, and finalists and the brackets will be revealed during the week after MLS Cup 2015.
