NEW YORK -- U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati has a smaller 10th-floor office than you might expect -- he's a popular economics lecturer at Columbia University -- but there are plenty of intriguing soccer mementos inside on the walls, including a picture of him with Bill Clinton and Nelson Mandela; a framed photograph of his young son, Emilio, hand-in-hand with Ronaldinho in a pre-game walk out the tunnel; and a series of 1990s-era MLS official game balls. (Gulati has worn many hats, including deputy commissioner of MLS in its early days.)
