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).

Hottest Straight Man Alive Up for Goal of the Week

28 07 2008

The Hottest Straight Man Alive (aka Brian Mullan) is up for Sierra Mist Goal of the Week (vote now) for his pretty goal against DC United. If it helps make up your mind, that goal was with his left foot (his weak side, if he has one). Other nominees: Kenny Cooper (I feel like I could have stopped that), Abe Thompson (that one actually was pretty good), Steven Lenhart (not bad, but then he got a red card), and Jason Garey (a goal actually off a keeper’s kick). Who you voting for, and why? Or more importantly, why not vote for the Hottest Straight Man Alive?
