To hex in a handbasket

It's pretty kooky we don't have an announced squad five days before a friendly, but we can pass the waiting time by talking hex.

no need to give russia a heads up on who they will be facing. they can find out when they see USA walking onto the field.

Greg Seltzer said...

That makes no sense. It's a friendly, whereas World Cup rosters are known nearly two months ahead of time.

Actually Greg, I think this time he was joking. Funny, too

Greg Seltzer said...

Touché.

dikranovich said...

no, i was not joking. there is no such thing as a friendly between usa and russia.

the german federation was ready to yank coach klinsmann right out of the drivers seat back in 06 after a 4-1 loss to italy in a "friendly". this is a country that understands the seriousness of each and every match, and their record shows as much.

Greg Seltzer said...

Aaaaand un-touché.

i mean, what, usa should put out the roster early so greg can explain to all of us how f. johnson should not be playing left back..... and heath pearce should be. ohhhh!!! three blind mice, see how they run. where the f are they going?

now thats a joke

tony, you aint a red bulls fan, are you? i did not know.

Tony M said...

dikranovich, I'm a general MLS fan. I post elsewhere as Tony in Quakeland, but I have not really connected with the new edition of the Quakes. I find myself wishing the Red Bulls are good, partly from having been raised in NY.
