Tribeca Film Festival


Spring Soccer Social

Soccer at the Tribeca Film Fest

The gorgeous spring weather on Saturday was such a treat, and the kids were out in full force at the Tribeca/NYFest soccer tournament at Pier 40. As mentioned, I was asked to participate in their celebrity match and I got to play alongside some pro players and other fellows from the film industry. Saw my friend Kelly Ripa who was there cheering her husband and my teammate Mark.

The guys (and one girl, hey Amy!) started friendly but things got a bit competitive in the second half (but all in good fun). I was even going head-to-head with Detroit Lion Ndamukong Suh at one point! Good thing we’re both Arsenal F.C. fans so I let him off easy. My team, Team Claudio Reyna, ended up clinching the game with three minutes to go and ended up winning 3-2.

But the day really was for the kids-we got to hang out with them and take some photos before the match. Read More


Kicking it at the Tribeca Film Fest Soccer Game

For those who know me, they know I’m really passionate about soccer. I play in a league team with some fellow Swedes (Go Blatte United!) so I’m really excited to be able to participate in the Tribeca/NYFEST celebrity soccer tournament this Saturday. It should be a really fun day with teams from Adam Yauch’s Oscilloscope Laboratories to Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal’s Tribeca Enterprises to Dave Matthews’ ATO Pictures competing. My teammates will include Andrew Shue and Alessandro Nivola as well as a number of pros like Red Bulls captain Claudio Reyna.

The best part is all of the day’s events are free to the public and will feature music, some food and lots of killer kicking around the field. You’ll get a full report after the game (providing we win). Kidding aside, come down and check it out and know you’re supporting a worthy cause-all proceeds from the event go to charities that provide soccer programs for underserved urban youth.
