Best debut ever.
New York Red Bulls goalkeeper Danny Cepero, in his first MLS game, not only beats the best team in MLS right now, the Columbus Crew, but has this moment to talk about for the rest of his life:

1. That's just embarrassing for the other keeper.

2. And terrible communication by the centerbacks.
One of them has to sweep that up - it never should have gotten to the keeper. Shocking for the Crew, who really are a great team.

The clip claimed that this was the first goal by a keeper in MLS history. I find that hard to believe - Tony Meola or Jorge Campos never got a PK? I'd believe that this was the first from the run of play, but I'd be shocked if it was the absolute first.

4. I'd be surprised too
They can be more common than you think, in other leagues:

Peter Schmeichel

The great Dane has a history of scoring goals and had his most prolific season in 1985 when he scored a remarkable six goals in 28 games for Hvidovre. After a move to Brondby, he then scored two more for the Danish giants in 1987.

With Manchester United, he memorably popped up in the penalty area to score an equaliser from a corner in an UEFA Cup tie against Rotor Volgograd in 1996 though United went out on the away goal rule.

The final goal of Schmeichel's career came in October 2001 when he scored from another corner for Aston Villa in their 3-2 defeat away at Everton.

Pat Jennings

Possibly the most famous goalkeeper's goal of all time was Pat Jennings' amazing strike in the 1967 Charity Shield.

Playing for Tottenham against Manchester United, the Northern Irishman punted a long clearance upfield and when the ball was caught by a strong wind, the ball flew over a rather embarrassed Alex Stepney.

Hans-Jorg Butt

Remarkably, German international 'keeper Hans-Jorg Butt scored 19 times for SV Hamburg between 1997 and 2001. The best season came in 1999/00 when he hit the back of the net nine times and was the club's top goalscorer.

The season before had seen Butt get seven goals, with only Tony Yeboah outscoring him.

Jose Luis Chilavert

The most prolific goalkeeper in history has scored over 50 goals at all levels, including one hat-trick. Between 1993 and 1997, he scored 17 league goals for Velez Sarsfield and was the free-kick and penalty-kick taker for the Colombian national side.

3. Candace Parker of the WNBA and Anquan Boldin were the two best debuts I ever seen

She went 12-19 from the field and scored 34 points in her very first WNBA game vs Phoenix. I watched the game and she was beating triple teams. She was unstoppable.

Anquan Boldin had 10 receptions for 217 yards for 2 touchdowns in his very first NFL game. He made some incredible plays. Now these are games I watched so there are probaly better debuts but as a WR in the NFL who the hell can or has topped Boldin?

6. I believe that happened yesterday.
The Red Bulls' starting goalkeeper, and one of their defenders, got caught using steroids, so they'll be gone for a while. (Sidebar: If you must use steroids, why Andro? Any tester worth a damn is going to catch it.) So this guy steps in, and this happens.
