Did you know... ?

... that, when considering levels Under-20 and above, the U.S. Men's National Teams have surrendered three penalty kick goals and seen nine (corrected from eight) men sent off in their last 19 FIFA cup matches?

That includes World Cup 2006, the 2007 Under-20 World Cup, the 2008 Summer Olympics, Confederations Cup and the ongoing 2009 Under-20 World Cup. There was at least one U.S. ejection in each tourney.

That's just the kind of stat geek tidbit I'll have in a S365 column on the Bob Bradley cycle-to-date later today.

I will also come back here with A few things... before too long. And yes, the Cut of the Day is dedicated to my search for a U.S. v Honduras video. Just wanted to share that quick bit about our poor run of big game discipline as a program.
