On a warm September afternoon, George John kicked back in a downtown Dallas studio with the latest issue of People Magazine and waited for his turn with hair and makeup. Meanwhile, Fabian Castillo struck a pose in a nearby mirror and Jonathan Top checked the fit on his handmade Italian suit. Zach Loyd, dressed in a Canali suit and Ermenegildo Zenga shirt and coat, demonstrated a few juggling tricks while he waited for his teammates to join him on the set of their latest gig.

The four FC Dallas players should have looked out of place in the photographer’s studio, but they each transitioned from athlete to model with ease. With multiple looks already pulled for each of them and a little assistance from the shoot’s directors, the foursome showed off both office and weekend wear from some of today’s top men’s designers. The photos were recently published in Pockets’ 2012 Holiday magazine, available in store at Pockets Menswear in Highland Park Village. The magazine features a six-page center spread of the players, as well as individual shots on additional pages. Whether it’s to pick up a copy of the magazine, or to do a little holiday shopping, it’s worth a trip to Highland Park Village this holiday season.

You can check out the six-page spread below, but you'll have to pick up a copy of the magazine from Pockets to see all the additional photos.

You can also check out a behind-the-scenes photo gallery of the September shoot on our Facebook page here.

NEW YORK – Major League Soccer today announced the list of players eligible for participation in the 2012 MLS Re-Entry Process. 

Clubs may still sign their Re-Entry Process eligible players through 5 p.m. ET on December 6.  Additionally, eligible players may opt out of the Re-Entry Process between now and 5 p.m. ET on December 6.

The Stage One draft of the Re-Entry Process will take place on Friday, December 7 at 3 p.m. ET and the Stage Two draft will take place on Friday, December 14 at 3 p.m. ET.   The two drafts will take place via teleconference with all 19 clubs represented.  MLS will release the results following each of the calls.

Both Stage One and Stage Two drafts will be conducted in the same order as the traditional Waiver Draft.

Clubs must exercise the option for, or extend a Bona Fide Offer to, all players selected in Stage 1.  Players that were out of contract may either accept or reject the Bona Fide Offer. Should a player reject the offer, the drafting club will hold the right of first refusal for that player in MLS. Players with option years left on their contract will automatically be added to the drafting club’s roster.
