Dispatches from Practice: Tweeting the Fightgate Aftermath

Mike Stobe

The big news out of yesterday's practice was Petke and Henry's clash. But they made up. And then they didn't. But it doesn't mean anything. Until it does. But probably not.

Yesterday, Head Coach Mike Petke and star forward Thierry Henry had to be pulled off each other after a heated exchange that saw the Frenchman leave the practice field. Supposedly, they made up after practice, but that bit of reportage didn't seem to quell concerns from the Red Bulls faithful.

Until...

Phew, I was worried there for a second...

Alright, good, it was just a flash in the pan. No big deal.

OH GOD IT'S OVER WE'RE DONE THAT'S SO METRO HENRY CLEARLY DOESN'T CARE PETKE IS AWFUL KIDNAP DE BONTIN'S FAMILY DRAW AND QUARTER ROXBURGH

Alright, maybe not.

Basically, it's business as usual at Red Bulls practice this morning, at least if Dickinson, Pazio and Martinez have anything to say about it. Some things are going to look a bit different now under the microscope but that doesn't mean two adults, on an active professional athlete, the other a retired one, can't put it past them. Sports, and relationships in general, are funny that way.
