NEW YORK - After an internet campaign by three people in the Secaucus area brought the idea to light, Red Bull New York admitted their interest in Italian striker and chef Mario Batali.
"It's no secret that we could use help with our on field chemistry as well as our food preparation," stated Jesse Marsch. "What we didn't expect was the we would have fans out there so passionate as to ask for Mario Batali. I'm not entirely certain what he could do for us from a soccer perspective, but if the front office is willing to give him a trial spot.... well... I guess I'll take a look at him."
The internet campaign for #BATALITORBNY was formed by brothers Eric and Lou Dibraggio and their friend Rober Naves of Secaucus, NJ
"We wanted someone that was an international player and we heard that Batali was on the outs with whatever team he is with right now," stated Naves to The Nutmeg News. "We thought this would be a great way for our team to get more goal scoring into the team and a player we want to watch."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as RBNY and Batali combine to create a new delicious line of Energy boosting Spaghetti sauces with Taurine!
