There are nights when Thierry Henry broods and sulks, and you wonder whether the New York Red Bulls will ever stop being Major League Soccer's signature train wreck.
There are also nights when Thierry Henry wakes up and leads his team, and reaches a level that few other players in MLS can.
Last night, we saw the latter. Henry scored twice in the Red Bulls' 2-1 win over the Montréal Impact, a result that kept New York tied with Houston for first place in the Eastern Conference.
His second goal was one of the best MLS has seen in quite some time: a perfectly executed bicycle kick.
