How's this for a hearty welcome to the Red Bulls?
Fresh off his first start for the Red Bulls less than two days after he made the move to New York, newly acquired goalkeeper Bill Gaudette is in the running for MLSsoccer.com's Save of the Week.
Gaudette's save came in the 32nd minute of Sunday's match against the Sounders, when Seattle's Eddie Johnson went wide with a pass from Alvaro Fernandez, cut inside toward goal and let loose with a shot that was primed to hit the far post and slip behind Gaudette. But it was not to be, as a diving Gaudette made a full extension and placed enough of a hand on the ball to set it over the crossbar and out, saving what would have been a sure goal.
Watch a replay here, and be sure to vote for Bill's save:
Voting runs until 11:59 pm PT on Thursday.

The Football Factory at Legends runs buses to and from Red Bull Arena all season long, and tomorrow's 1 PM match against the Chicago Fire is no exception.

Check out this full-length video feature that highlights the recent art exhibit in New York City involving Red Bulls captain Thierry Henry and artist Tristan Eaton.
In this video, you'll not only see clips from the event outside Madison Square Garden, but you'll also see how the idea came together as Henry and Eaton met for the first time at his Brooklyn studio months ago. And of course, you'll see the final product revealed at the end, courtesy of Henry's target-shooting skills:
Note: The initially planned viewing party for July 18 has been postponed until Aug. 10 when the Red Bulls host the Dynamo.
Red Bulls fans in attendance for the Aug. 10 match against the Houston Dynamo will be treated to a special event, courtesy of AT&T.
Following the completion of the match (and hopefully a three-point outcome!), those in the stands will have the option to watch the full-length Thierry Henry documentary entitled, “Thierry Henry 1:1.”
Produced by Red Bull Media House, the Henry feature takes you along for the ride with the Red Bulls' captain, Arsenal legend and international superstar. It includes a number of clips from his success on the pitch, along with additional off-the-field moments with New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and various other teammates and opponents, both present and past, that have played with or against Henry throughout his career.
Henry’s documentary received heaps of praise during last month’s Kicking and Screening film festival in New York City, and is a definite must-see for any Red Bulls fan or soccer enthusiast.
Special thanks to AT&T once again for providing this great opportunity! Be sure to stick around after the match to watch the movie in its entirety.
Sebastien Le Toux scored in his Red Bulls debut and Joel Lindpere added another as New York played the Seattle Sounders to a 2-2 draw at Red Bull Arena Sunday evening. [Full Recap | Watch: Le Toux's Goal Goal | Watch: Lindpere's Goal].
Newly acquired goalkeeper Bill Gaudette, who earned his first start in the wake of Ryan Meara's hip injury, backstopped the Red Bulls to a one-point finish thanks to a three-save performance. Rafa Marquez, who has struggled recently with an on-and-off again calf injury, was forced to leave the match in the 21st minute. Wilman Conde subbed on in his place and put in an industrious 69-minute performance.

Red Bulls midfielder Joel Lindpere was buzzing around the goal early in the match and just seemed to have it in his mind that he was going to be in attack mode all match long. In the 61st minute, the Estonian hit pay dirt when he fired one low on goal that slipped inside the post and past Seattle goalkeeper Bryan Meredith to give the Red Bulls a 2-1 lead:
Down 1-0 after allowing an early Seattle goal in the 16th minute, the Red Bulls leveled things up in the 24th minute when newly acquired striker Sebastien Le Toux buried his first as a Red Bull:
Red Bulls striker Thierry Henry and artist Tristan Eaton took to the streets of New York City Friday afternoon to unleash an event that combined art with soccer right outside the confines of the World's Most Famous Arena, Madison Square Garden.
The system was simple: Henry and Eaton arrived on the scene in front of cheering fans and pedestrians walking through the streets of New York City. Henry's goal was to kick soccer balls at the five targets above the canvas, with each one unlocking and revealing a new column of Eaton's art project.
Not many on hand kept track of exactly how many kicks it took for Henry to complete the project. After all, it started with a few practice kicks, some friendly banter with the crowd and some close calls before Henry found his stride and unveiled the project within the span of 15 minutes. Afterward, both he and Eaton met with members of the media, fans and passerbys to discuss the project, soccer and art.
We'll have more soon right here on NewYorkRedBulls.com, including a nice feature documenting the day's event. In the mean time, check out this short glimpse of Henry unleashing his love for soccer onto the canvas:
