Familiar face is the story of the weekend, news and notes

I wasn’t able to get to a weekend roundup post since I was working all day Saturday and traveling all day Sunday. But I did catch enough to see that ex-Sounder, and current Philadelphia Union forward, Sebastien Le Toux was the story of the league with a hat trick against D.C. United in a 3-2 win.
The first goal was vintage Seba, hustling to the near post to head in a cross. His second was something I hadn’t seen from him in a while, a perfectly taken shot from 20 yards to the far post. The third I was baffled by, he takes free kicks?
Anyways, it was a performance good enough to earn Le Toux the MLS player of the week award — and, yes, I voted for him. The local press also raved about him. Here’s a short video from the Philadelphia locker room where Le Toux recalls Seattle for his last hat trick.
Who knows? Maybe he was inspired by Vice President Joe Biden being in the building. Doubtful.
Let’s get to some links:

Some wild and crazy videos for you. Soccer is a wild and crazy game.
1. Here some mean fans harass a cameraman during some Europa League action.

2. Here’s a flying elbow by Juventus’ Maruo Camoranesi. It went unpunished, surprisingly.

3. Lastly, an airborne, two-footed tackle that fortunately did not go unpunished.
