Carey Becomes A Soccer Boss
U.S. comedian-turned-gameshow host Drew Carey has added soccer team boss to his resume - after investing in a Major League Soccer (MLS) team.
The star is a huge fan of the sport and has pumped money into a franchise in Seattle, Washington, which will kick off its new season in April ('09).
Carey reveals, "We haven't got a name yet. We're going to have a fan contest to name it." Carey has been a longtime devotee of soccer and took off to Europe to film a documentary about the sport, which aired in 2006.
