Oh Captain, My Captain: Trouble Saying Goodbye To Carlos Bocanegra

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon I’ve no idea if there’s a moment in life where you begin to feel old. I’m not referencing a “Murtaugh List”  of things you can’t do at a certain age. That’s too easy and less about mortality than it is about humor. I’m talking about seachange. About the genuine end of childhood […]

USA-Germany Preview: Can the US Pop the Luftballon?

Tweet Andrew Villegas and Neil W. Blackmon 90 minutes for four years.

Greg Howard at Deadspin took the high road, shrugging the remarks off as more of the same from the four letter network. I won’t. A once proud […]

Turkey Takeaways: Optimism in Attack, The Jones Debate, Defensive Questions

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon and Zack Goldman The United States pulled a “deja vu all over again” in Yogi Berra’s backyard by beating Turkey 2-1 in a World Cup Send-Off Series match for the second straight cycle, this time at a sold-out Red Bull Arena.

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon The United States Men’s National Team opened the “Send-Off Series” for the 2014 World Cup with a 2-0 victory over Azerbaijan Tuesday night in San Francisco.
