Salla didn't understand half of what was happening on the field, which was probably for the best. Still, whenever Martin overthrew a receiver, Salla warbled the refrain from Who Let the Dogs Out? loud enough to be heard in Heidelberg, if not Green Bay. And when Frankfurt finally crossed the 50-yard line midway through the second quarter, he tossed confetti in the air and crooned, "That's the way (uh-huh, uh-huh) I like it."
He took Frankfurt's 3-0 loss—a soccer score if ever there was one—with good-natured sportsmanship. "I go to Galaxy games to join the party and have a good time," said Munich college student Florian Ratzinger. "It's something you can do with your girlfriend without getting beat up."
