Bastian Schweinsteiger

The Best "I'm A Star...Get Me Out Of Here!" Moments In MLS History

"It's a very hard league to play in. It's very physical, there's a lot of running. So there is a lot of physical work and to me, in my mind, too little play."

Andrea Pirlo probably didn't have running wind sprints in mind when he planned on winding down his career in MLS, but that's what he got. Although NYCFC play on one of the smallest fields you'll ever see at the professional level, Pirlo still chases the game more than when he played in Italy. And, of course, he's 38 now, so he's likely feeling the burn a bit more.

Here’s Why Schweinsteiger Gets A Little Frustrated With His MLS Teammates

Bastian Schweinsteiger’s comments regarding MLS the other week were less a criticism of the league than a dash of honesty — the Chicago Fire, World Cup hopefuls though they may be, are not as good as Manchester United or Bayern Munich. Dax McCarty isn’t Paul Pogba, David Accam isn’t Arjen Robben and Nemanja Nikolic isn’t Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Bastian Schweinsteiger Threw Out The First Pitch At A Cubs Game

The Chicago Fire finally have their superstar and are gladly showing him off around town. Bastian Schweinsteiger seems to be adjusting well to life in the Windy City: he’s scoring goals on the field, sitting courtside at Bulls games, and even threw out the first pitch for the Cubs at Wrigley Field Tuesday night. 

I’m guessing Schweinsteiger did not want to look foolish in front of the World Series champs, so he got some help from teammate Dax McCarty in preparation for his debut on the mound.

Bastian Schweinsteiger Is The Banter King Of Chicago

When Argentine Chicago Fire forward Luis (Lucho) Solignac left his phone unlocked, his new teammate Bastian Schweinsteiger knew just what to do with it: remind the Argentine, and his followers, who won the World Cup in 2014.

It was Germany. Germany won the World Cup in 2014. Bastian Schweinsteiger played in that game. Lucho Solignac didn't but you can imagine he had a rooting interest just the same.

Lady Asks Old Man To Take Photo Of Her With Fire Squad, Old Man Is Bastian Schweinsteiger

As the Chicago Fire arrived at the Toronto airport for their upcoming game against Toronto FC, one lady spotted the Fire squad. She then decided to ask Bastian Schweinsteiger if he would take a picture of her with the rest of the Fire players.

Thankfully for the soccer world, the Fire's assistant head coach Eric Gehrig was able to snap a picture of the scene.

What happened next is a picture worth a thousand words — and laughs. Plenty of laughs.

MLS Rankings Of Power: Week Five

Wow, five straight weeks. Nobody thought we would make it this far. It’s our wooden anniversary, but you won’t find anybody celebrating around here — we’ve got some kinetic energy to investigate. 

It’s time to switch up the intro because, by now, you should know the drill. If you don’t, here’s the breakdown: the best team in MLS is still the Timber Joeys!, the worst team in MLS is now Sons By Name Of Ben. That’s the table. That’s who wins the ATL-ULTRAS-WATCH-UR-MOUTH Shield and who gets sent down to try and figure out where in the f**k Indy Eleven is.  

Looking Ahead To Bastian Schweinsteiger's Debut For The Chicago Fire

What can we expect to see during the match between the Chicago Fire and the Montreal Impact Saturday, which could mark Bastian Schweinsteiger's debut in the USA?

The first thing that we can expect to see is a motivated and energetic crowd. The last time the Fire had a legend in their midst was in 2007 when Mexican hero Cuauhtemoc Blanco joined the team.

Bastian Schweinsteiger Went To A Bulls Game

A very interesting guest was on hand for the Chicago Bulls' win over the Cleveland Cavaliers Thursday night in Chicago, a man who was once at the top of his sport but has seen the sands of time take their inevitable toll. He is not what he once was, though he can still be effective at times. It is, perhaps, better to remember the good times, all those years ago, when he was the best in the world at what he did, than to look upon him now, a shadow of his former self.

But enough about Dwyane Wade. Bastian Schweinsteiger was there!
