USA soccer superfan Teddy Goalsevelt running for FIFA president

Thursday June 4th, 2015

With the FIFA presidency up in the air after Sepp Blatter's election was quickly followed by his resignation amid a massive corruption scandal, many candidates are emerging.

UEFA president Michel Platini, Jordan's Prince Ali and retired Portuguese star Luis Figo are among the favorites to take over the post, but a new contender is throwing his hat into the ring: U.S. soccer superfan Teddy Goalsevelt.

Goalsevelt, the alter ego of American Outlaws chapter president Mike D'Amico, posted a new video announcing his intention to seek the position. He also outlined some of the reasons he is fit for the position, including that he has wrestled a bear and, of course, his magnificent mustache.
