Yup, just head to the Yanks Abroad forum for the punch line. Good grief.
He was left on the field for too long and seems to have re-aggravated his hamstring injury one more time.
Insert your hysterical over-reactions here:
A hysterical overreaction may well be called for. Again. This is JOB after all.
I know it will get censored but what the hell.
Can someone run up the movie poster w/John O'Brien as the lead character in the M. Night Shamalyn pic "Unbreakable" (or whatever it was called, with Samual L. Jackson)....
JOB, c'mon man....we got major talent in the pipeline....we need you too bud
Any word on how serious the injury or how long he'll be out?
Mild strain. 5-7 months.
Hilarious. Sad. True.
Dude needs to retire so he can play with his children when he's 42. Plus he's made his cash and I am sure USSoccer would take him as a coach any day of the week and twice on Sundays.
latest from the YA board is 4-6 weeks he's expected out...
That basically puts him out until after New Years, assuming he heals on time
I'm fine with these injuries. Really. O'Brien should just maintain his routine of staying injured for the better part of three years and then waltz into the US camp about 2 months before WC 06 and take someone's well-earned starting spot, then play every minute for the US in the WC and be one of the best players on the field, then get hurt again and ride the stationary bike for another three years or so. It sounds cynical, but I'm serious. Keep the miles off those pegs, JOB.
I had balsa wood gliders growing up that were more durable.
And I thought John was an aspiring stand-up comedian.
FUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCCCK!!!! DAMN YOU, JOB! Oh well, maybe it's a good omen...could have a repeat of Portugal in '02...maybe? Just trying to look on the bright side, folks...
Coaching?! Do you have any idea of the kind of strain that could put on a hamstring?
That was bloody hilarious.
