Have you heard about the midnight rambler?

Since it is now officially Saturday a.m. here and aside from one holiday stock-up at the market my tomorrow is reserved for general lazing about, let's dispense with as-of-yet unnamed goodie celebration day six.

These silly season sagas often take sharp turns, and as such, this holiday nibble is really the goodie that wasn't. Still a Sochaux forward set to return on the 4th, Charlie Davies is no longer trying to seal any deal - it's all fallen through. Sources tell me he still has interest in Ligue 2 and elsewhere in Europe, but is for now only eager to prove himself to new Lionceax boss Mehmed Baždarević (who has never seen Chuck D live).

But wait... we haven't hit the juicy part. From the "stuff you'd never guess that goes on" file, I've also learned that Davies recently rejected a primetime offer from Mexico.

You've read that correctly.

Is it just me or are those teams south of the border suddenly trying to snap up every USMNT veteran that has turned down MLS offers? It's the newest border war.

And with that, I wish you all a fine Christmas time even if you don't celebrate that at home. Either way, it's a good day to have fine times with your loved ones.

Wow, why on earth would CD turn that offer down? Mexico could have been just what he needed.

Happy Holidays, Greg and thanks for all of your great work this year. We really enjoy reading your stuff here in the States.
