14 08 2008

USA Roster Announced:

The 17-man roster, including four Olympians, for Wednesday’s World Cup qualifier at Guatemala (10 p.m. ET, ESPN2, Galavision): [FYI, an 18th player will be added in the next few days.]

GOALKEEPERS: Tim Howard, Brad Guzan.

DEFENDERS: Steve Cherundolo, Oguchi Onyewu, Carlos Bocanegra, Heath Pearce, Frankie Hejduk, Jay DeMerit.

MIDFIELDERS: Michael Bradley, Maurice Edu, Sacha Kljestan, Pablo Mastroeni, Eddie Lewis.

FORWARDS: Landon Donovan, Eddie Johnson, Brian Ching, Clint Dempsey.

Jeff’s take:

Surprisingly missing: Kenny Cooper

Mistakenly present: Brian Ching (I love the Dynamo therefore I love Ching, but he doesn’t need to be on this roster; I would have brought Kenny, or long list of other people first).

Types of Hot: Rough Hot

29 07 2008

Alright, “Rough Hot” could be interpreted many ways, and in the case of Clint Dempsey, I mean them all. Not always pristine. A little bit of temper. Very physical play on the pitch. Sometimes need a translator when he gives interviews. I imagine (unfortunately don’t KNOW) a lot of throwing around (the fun kind), not a lot of words (and those spoken a little rough), and a lot of sweat. Sigh. So while he has abandoned the MLS for Fulham in the Premier League, as a regular on the US MNT, we here at NHB could never abandon him. So thank you Clint Dempsey for exemplifying Rough Hot.
