Keller Snags 2nd Player of the Year Award

Goalkeeper Kasey Keller, the only American soccer player to ever be immortalized in song, won the Honda Player of the Year Award on Wednesday as the best player on the U.S. national soccer team, adding it to the honor he earned in 1999.

Landon Donovan, who had won the award the past three years, and DaMarcus Beasley were the other finalists. Keller received 344 points in voting by 206 sports journalists across the country, while Donovan got 329 and Beasley 270.

Keller joins Eric Wynalda (1992, 1996) and Donovan as the only multiple winners of the award.

I highly recommend listening to that song. It's funny and cute and I've had it on my computer for about a year now. I listen to it before every NT game. Except for Costa Rica.

Coincedence? I think not.

I voted for Beasley in the USSoccer member vote yesterday...though Kasey is deserving.
