In my anticipation of the US-Mexico match I found myself on the ussoccerstore.com website, which resulted in a feeling of irritation at the selection of replica merchandise. It wasn't too long ago that US Soccer had a huge joke for an online presence, and I do give them a lot of credit for how far they've come, especially in offering way more merchandise than ever before. But how they think that offering everything in the theme of Donovan, Beasley, or Adu is going to appeal to me - a 29 year old man, is absolutely baffling. It used to be easy to get behind McBride, and guys like Harkes and Balboa were easy to root for, but these days I find it increasingly more difficult to give a crap about the US Men's National Team. Or maybe I'm just tired of Christmas. Whatever.
