Since Thursday morning, when the domestic registration period opened and he became officially eligible to play, Thierry Henry has been sitting for interviews, doing his bit for MLS. Yesterday, he donned the sweat suit of the New York Red Bulls and continued the process at Crew Stadium.
Henry shuffled between television cameras and answered every pregame question put to him. Just when it looked as if he were finished, he was asked to do one more interview. His public-relations handler assented on the grounds that it be "a walker" - done as Henry made his way back to the visitors' locker room.
