The MLS All-Star Game is Wednesday night in Kansas City. The league’s All-Stars take on Italian club AS Roma (ESPN2, 9 p.m.). During the week’s festivities Graham Zusi, Jack McInerney, Omar Gonzalez, Kyle Beckerman, Chris Wondolowski, Mike Magee, Brad Davis found some time to cut a “Super Bowl Shuffle” inspired music video for Funny or Die touting their awesome skills, specifically that “(they’re) better than the best.”
Or at least the best at wearing wayfarer shades.
Here’s a sample of USMNT center back Gonzalez’s sick rap skills (note he’s performing this while wearing zebra-striped Zubaz): “In the big game we’re gonna play Roma, go so hard we’re going to put ‘em in a coma.”
