UPDATE:

Since I’m in the soccer mood, I got my Sports Illustrated Issue today … and look who was the centerpiece. I swear, Sports Illustrated + Messi in centerfold = better than Playboy

————————————

First and foremost, the roster. Congratulations to the guys who made the team. Go get em in South Africa, boys!

Goalkeepers: Brad Guzan (Aston Villa, England), Marcus Hahnemann (Wolverhampton, England), Tim Howard (Everton, England).

Defenders: Carlos Bocanegra (Rennes, France), Jonathan Bornstein (Chivas USA), Steve Cherundolo (Hannover, Germany), Jay DeMerit (Watford, England), Clarence Goodson (IK Start, Norway), Oguchi Onyewu (AC Milan, Italy), Jonathan Spector (West Ham, England).

Midfielders: DaMarcus Beasley (Glasgow Rangers, Scotland), Michael Bradley (Borussia Moenchengladbach, Germany), Ricardo Clark (Eintracht Frankfurt, Germany), Clint Dempsey (Fulham, England), Landon Donovan (Los Angeles), Maurice Edu (Glasgow Rangers, Scotland), Benny Feilhaber (AGF Aarhus, Denmark), Stuart Holden (Bolton, England), Jose Torres (Pachuca, Mexico).

Forwards: Jozy Altidore (Hull, England), Edson Buddle (Los Angeles), Robbie Findley (Salt Lake), Herculez Gomez (Puebla, Mexico).

I highlight Findley because he’s probably the biggest eye-opener for me on the roster. I would have taken Brian Ching, but there might be more to the injury that I thought. That said. good luck, U.S.A!

And lastly today, not that I’m particularly proud of my favoritism, but before I was a journalist, I was a fan. So it’s GREAT to see Robbie Van Persie score twice today against Mexico. 2-1! Han Holland! Let’s go, boys!

Julio,

Great piece. Exciting time for US Soccer fans.

Your boys from San Jose are doing really well. We may be seeing each other again in the playoffs.
