Public Service Announcements

Be like Thorblad! Respect national anthems!

Hi! I'm Thorblad, the National Anthem Respecting Meerkat! This is a helpful reminder, especially for our friends in Utah tonight. We know you love America, and maybe some of you were pretty ********ing pissed off about what happened in Toronto. But two wrongs don't make a right! Treat other people's anthems the way you would want yours treated! Remember what Thorblad always says:

Even smaller than a nanometer is an angstrom
It's not cool to boo a national anthem!

Brought to you by National Anthems: Making Better Lives, America!

Hi, it's Jay-Z - with another Public Service Announcement!

Worried that the guy you're adding to your club or Olympic team might be too damn old? Take this quiz and find out!

Can you arrange the following in order, from oldest to youngest?

Brian McBride
Zinedine Zidane
Abel Xavier
Jason Kreis
Cuauhtemoc Blanco
Claudio Reyna
David Beckham
Paulo Wanchope

Answer! Result (highlight to reveal): Boy, you forget sometimes how long these guys have been around. We all knew guys like Claudio Suarez and Pat Onstad had a serious case of the old, but Ezra Hendrickson - I always forget until I look at the MLSnet site how long he's been out there. There's no quit in Ezra, that's for sure.

Well, I guess I ought to wrap this up. Great visiting with you. How have you been?

Really? That's good. Glad to hear it.

Stay in school. I'm Jay-Z.
