WHAT HAPPENED? There's a tradition in North America that sees players get to spend a day with a trophy, with many using that day to celebrate with friends and family in their hometown. But Ferrell, being who he is, certainly wouldn't want a normal celebration after seeing the team he owns, LAFC, win the 2022 MLS Cup in a historic clash with the Philadelphia Union.

WHAT THEY SAID:“I probably would go around the world baptizing babies in it," Ferrell told MLS Season Pass. "That would be the goal, yes. Filled with holy water and a little Coors Light. Then no one would have ever done that before. I think that's something that hasn't been done with the Cup.”
