No matter what it's called -- Olimpico? -- Marco Pappa's goal directly from a corner kick in the Chicago Fire's 2-1 loss to Seattle last week can now be called an AT&T Goal of the Week winner.

Pappa, whose strike came late in the second half when the Fire were already down by two goals, edged out New York's Thierry Henry's lovely chip for the weekly honor.

He is the first Fire player to win Goal of the Week honors since Week 7 of the 2010 season, when a long blast from Logan Pause won it
