ATTN: Columbus

It's not often the USMNT holds an open training session. Even us scribes usually only get to see about 15 minutes near the end. However, on the morning of September 9th, the fine folks of Columbus get the whole enchilada.

In case you forgot or missed it, this is how it went the last time the Nats held one of these.

What. Is. This. Shit?

Greg Seltzer said...

Wishful thinking verging on delusion.

Jay Eychaner said...

Describes the Rangers financial policies pretty well, too.

PaulD said...

Anything on Demps?

WilkersonMclaser said...

PaulD, might as well give up asking about Clint. Just find a way to manage your inner rage about the whole messiness of the situation. I've taken to hurting woodland creatures to relieve the anger.

PaulD said...

I'm going to randomly start killing puppies if something doesn't get settled soon.

Jay Eychaner said...

Well, I guarantee it'll be settled within the next 55 hours.

WilkersonMclaser said...

Maybe I ought to take a more aggressive approach:

I'll shoot this dog (https://encrypted-tbn1.google.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcS24SJFLax7lkxLX15Ld3kZ3oodc0u2dxlBxOobq_Ls1NC84p6J) unless Clint Dempsey gets a proper club!

Greg Seltzer said...

I love dogs, hate guns and personally know a ninja. I'd rethink your tactic.

WilkersonMclaser said...

Greg, perhaps you're the one being too hasty here. You should sit down, pour yourself a macchiato, and consider the root causes of my neuroses before you start employing the services of masked killer people. What's next, drones? C'mon!

Greg Seltzer said...

1 - I hate coffee.

2 - Don't give me the slippery slope (a ka easiest argument to rebut ever) on my ninja!

There are times that I think Greg and I might be right decent friends, were the scenario to present itself. And then he says things like "I don't like coffee," which hits me like a fist to the solar plexus. Oof. Maybe this comes from watching televised soccer in the US, but coffee and footy just seem like a natural combination to me.

Ethiopian roast, a tiny dash of cream, a plate of homemade chilaquiles with chorizo and black beans... Oh man, is it Saturday at 6:30 AM yet?

RM said...

Greg, Interest in Onyewu has apparently exploded and now includes Reading,West Ham and major Turkish clubs. Care to drop us something?

Greg Seltzer said...

@ Jay Eychaner: Don't worry, I'm with you 150,000% on the a plate of homemade chilaquiles with chorizo and black beans. I could destroy a plate of that any time.

@ RM: Pretty soon. And yes, it's become quite a scene - even more of one than I'm personally aware of at this moment, actually.
