Obafemi Martins is settling in nicely with six goals in 11 appearances during his first season with Seattle and appears he's making himself at home off the pitch as well with his unique set of gold, shirt-upholstered dining room chairs. Having played for eight clubs (Reggina, Inter, Newcastle, Wolfsburg, Rubin Kazan, Birmingham City, Levante, Seattle, plus Nigeria) over his 13-year career, Martins can host a pretty large dinner party using a different shirt for each chair. And since his surname is prominently featured on the back of every single one, he can also play a delightful game of musical Martins.
