The man from Nacogdoches, Texas who went from the New England Revolution to one time rappper to Fulham to the United States national team. Dempsey is perhaps the first United States field player to make it out right as a professional footballer - start consistantly for his side. Brian McBride, Carlos Bocanegra, and John Harkes maybe in that category as well, but Dempsey maybe the most creative. In the photo below he sports his new arm sleeve tattoo - looks like somekind of warrior. The test for Dempsey is to make a big statement in the World Cup. Take the team on his back if need be to get them a win.
