This article is about several different things, so feel free to move if necessary. http://weeklystandard.com/Content/Public/Articles/000/000/006/485auznd.asp A couple of thoughts: 1) It's true that the Heidi Klum jokes got old pretty quickly, but men + sports = a puerile combination. 2) I don't think we need to take it as a lack of respect that the Italian and Czech coaches can't name any US players (so PLEASE don't even start with the whining!). Their job was to lead their countries out of UEFA qualifying, and so their focus has been on opposing European players. Now that the draw's been announced, they'll have armies of scouts watching tape of our games, and probably in attendance as well. By next June, Lippi and Bruckner will know who the US (and Ghanian) players are. 3) There are some great links in this article (not least of which is the link to bigsoccer.com !) 4) There's an ad (at least when I viewed the page) for Rick Santorum. Rick Santorum is a moron. If you move to PA, you don't have to vote Democrat, but please don't vote for Santorum. I'll avoid posting the link, but if you google "Santorum," you'll see why he's such a jerk. 5) GO USA!!!!!
