American girl absolutely overwhelmed by meeting Liverpool's Steven Gerrard

Tuesday July 29th, 2014

This has to be the most extreme reaction an American girl has had to seeing a guy from Liverpool in over fifty years.

Liverpool FC is in the New York area ahead of Thursday's friendly against Manchester City at Yankee Stadium. They held their practice Monday on the campus of Princeton University in New Jersey. People were excited -- some more than others.

Has anyone ever had that sort of reaction to meeting an MLS player?
