T-Minus 70 Days to Canada

The USWNT have officially entered business mode. Our ladies have not raised the trophy since 1999, making but one of the last three finals. Is this the group that can claim our third title?

Your USMNT Line-Up

As you can imagine, I am already eager for the requisite halftime formation switch.

Greetings From The Old World

The USMNT sent out a video postcard to demonstrate their mindsets as they get set to take on Denmark in just under six hours.

Score on your debut and the chants begin...

You know the one. It is clearly audible after St. Patrick's midfielder Morgan Langley scored the capper in last night's 2-0 win over Derry City.

Oof.

Skipper Clint Dempsey has been ruled out of this Euro-trip of friendlies against Denmark and Switzerland. As everyone will now wonder how they'd line 'em up with him gone, I will start: with so many wingers on hand, I'd simply slide Bedoya to the #10 spot ahead of free roamer Bradley and gate hound Williams.

By the way, for anyone going to Zurich for the game, it is wholly worth the 50-60 minute lake-side drive to eat "Chicken in a Basket" at Restaurant Schlüssel - no lie. You could put that sauce on a shoe and wolf it whole.

The Joker is loose... POW! BAM! SHA-BANG!

Yup, Armenian Premier League top gun Cesar Romero fired a pretty 73rd minute decider at Banants on Sunday to give FC Pyunik a four-point cushion at the top of the table. The goal was his 18th on the league season and the victory was the eighth in a row for the Phoenix (not sure is that is actually their nickname, but Pyunik means Phoenix in Armenian and one stands on their crest).

And if you check the right column, you may notice his goal total jumped three instead of one; that is because he also bagged the opening double as Pyunik grabbed a 3-1 home leg win in their midweek cup semifinal opener.
