July 27, 2014 (Harrison, NJ) Over 25,000 fans jammed into the Harrison Red Bulls Stadium yesterday for a friendly game between the Red Bulls and the Arsenal Gunners of the English Premier Leaque. The parking lots were full, the traffic control was stretched to its limits and the scalpers were out doing a brisk business. It was good timing since the New Jersey Appellate Division in June upheld a lower court's ruling that the Red Bulls have to pay local property taxes to the Town of Harrison.

Why did so many fans show up to the little town of Harrison? They came to see the game for sure but mostly they came to honor current Red Bull soccer play, Thierry Henry.

StubHub Defendant Sports Kearny United Shirt

July 24, 2014 (Kearny, NJ) The Town of Kearny got some press this week when one of the Defendants in the 1.6 million dollar StubHub ticket, Bryan Caputo, wore a Kearny United Soccer shirt to court. Caputo is a Kearny resident as is Daniel Petryszyn.

Both men in their late 20's are accused of assisting in the sale of 3,500 electronic tickets to events with funds from other account holders to the tune of 1.6 million. According to the New York City District Attorney's office, the two Kearny residents were not innocent bystanders but knew that they were aiding two Russian hackers, Vadim Polyakov, 30 years old, and Nikolay Matveyehuk, 21 years old, in hacking into 1,600 StubHub accounts and purchasing 3,500 e-tickets which were then mailed to Bryan Caputo, Daniel Petryszyn, and to Laurence Brinkmeyer.

StubHub is a subsidary of eBay. It is still not clear how the two Russian hackers obtained the passwords to the StubHub accounts.
