In the first season of the Stars, Joe came out of retirement to back up Louis Crayton who had, if I remember correctly, just finished a stint with DC United. He had some local connections to the Liberian community which is how he latched on with the Stars. Anyway, near the end of the first half of the first game of the season in Vancouver, Louis tore his ACL trying to clear the ball. Joe came in and that was that.
I spent some time this AM trying to find the video highlights of the match, but I was unsuccessful. It looks like the Whitecaps no longer have it on their You Tube channel. The one thing I will never forget about that match is the poor camera work when Joe was getting ready to come in. He was bending over to stretch out and the cameraman was right behind him zooming in on his butt. I will never forget the collective, "Hmm, there is Joe's butt" while watching the match at the Sweety.
