70 Days Until USA vs. Ghana: Monday Musings

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon A break for Final Four weekend and it ends up being a short and sad one for your author, whose Florida Gators fell to Connecticut 63-53 in the national semifinals.

USA vs. Mexico- Never A Friendly: Your TYAC Preview

US 2, South Korea 0: Solid 2014 Debut Icing on the Cupcake

US 2, South Korea 0: Solid 2014 Debut Icing on the Cupcake

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon Out of deference to the Super Bowl, TYAC’s traditional “final thoughts and match musings” piece moves to Monday this week. After last night’s display by the team from Colorado, there is a thinking at least on this end that the deference was ill-deserved. What a travishammockery of a football game. The bad news […]

Being an Eddie Johnson Fan: One Writer’s Journey
