Casting The World Cup Final

Casting The World Cup Final

Tweet We’ve all played this game before. It usually ends with all of your friends saying you look nothing like Ed Burns or James Van Der Beek, right? This begets a 15 minute discussion about the size of your nose? Okay, maybe that’s just how it happens for me. But for now let’s turn our […]

Puck's Happy Hour: World Cup Final

Puck’s Happy Hour: World Cup Final

Tweet What a tournament it has been! Even with all the bullshit regarding the Jabulani flying off into space, concerns about South Africa’s ability to control massive crowds on the world’s biggest stage, gigantic divots on the pitch, and the occasional God-awful officiating, I have truly enjoyed every minute I’ve been able to watch. I […]

Oranje: Don't Look So Surprised

Oranje: Don’t Look So Surprised

Tweet Holland just downed Brazil two to one, leaving the contents of the tournament co-favorite (let’s not forget about Spain) to scatter across Western Europe in returning to their home clubs. I like the Dutch and I tend to root against Brazil, but this is no Oranje flag-waving piece. I’m not of Dutch descent and […]

Holland v US: Player Ratings

With Penn and Teller not in our Starting XI, the US succumbed 2-1 to the Clockwork Orange in front of 46,630 packed into the Amsterdam ArenA. Starters Howard: 7. Unlucky to give up goals by PK and deflection. […]

Yanks' Final Push Begins With Holland

Yanks’ Final Push Begins With Holland

Tweet Fitting that only days removed from the heartbreaking defeat of U.S. Hockey in the gold medal game (I thoroughly appreciate the Facebook-suggested National Hate Sidney Crosby Day, and no, I still do not want to talk about it), the U.S. Men’s National Team would take to the field in the final match it will […]

Projecting The Yanks' Starting XI

Projecting The Yanks’ Starting XI

Tweet Wednesday’s match in Amsterdam is a peculiar one for us Yanks fans. A peculiar one that we’ll all be watching closely because Holland is without a doubt the best competition this team will face prior to grappling with England in what I can only hope will eventually be dubbed “The Revolution in Rustenburg.” This […]

All Eyes Turn To Amsterdam (Part Two)

All Eyes Turn To Amsterdam (Part Two)

Tweet With respect to the Amsterdam “final auditions”—four names again shine prominently: both the Rangers, Stu Holden and Jose Francisco Torres. With Ricardo Clark, Benny Feilhaber and Deuce on the shelf– Beasley will surely get his chance. To even earn a final look is a testament to the Diamond Merchant’s fine form and resolve this […]

All Eyes Turn To Amsterdam (Part One)

Tweet With the last-chance-saloon match in Tampa safely in the Yanks’ rear view mirror, all eyes in the world of American soccer now with cautious optimism fix themselves on Amsterdam, where at least a skeleton of Bob Bradley’s World Cup side prepares to take on Holland Wednesday afternoon. Bradley’s roster includes a nearly complete version […]
