VIDEO: Marco Pappa Scores Olimpico

In an otherwise forgettable result for the Chicago Fire, Marco Pappa at least supplied a memorable moment. The midfielder added his name to the relatively short list of players to score directly off a corner kick, otherwise known as an "Olimpico."

The goal was undoubtedly aided by the heavy winds at Toyota Park, but it was impressive, nonetheless:


The goal cut the Fire's deficit to 2-1 and they did come close to equalizing. As it is, they'll just have to be satisfied with this peach.
