While traveling in Asia after the World Cup, I talked with a lot of people about soccer. One time I was talking to this guy from Holland, and we started talking about the USA team. He then told me about after the 1994 World Cup, Alexi Lalas was extremely popular in Amsterdam cause of the rebel/cool dude look he had back then. In Amsterdam in 1994, ecstacy (MDMA) was even known as "Lalas" on the street. If you wanted to buy an E you would ask around for a "Lalas" Some E dealers in clubs would even wear US Soccer jerseys with "Lalas" on the back so people could find their drugs for the night easily. Man, Imagine! The US Soccer players already had a huge effect on Europe and its culture back in 1994. Think I'll have to make a trip to Amsterdam one day and celebrate with a "Lalas" while im there.
