About Eric Wynalda and U.S. Soccer

The guy rubs lots of folk the wrong way, but it’s about time someone had the cojones to tell it like it is about U.S. Soccer.   The current players are talented but soft.  The USSF uses the “America hates soccer” crap to excuse poor performance and terrible management.  Finally, Wynalda understands that the U.S. should be kicking the crap out of most teams in the world even with the tallest, largest athletes playing other sports.

I don’t blame the U.S.  for not watching soccer, what with the terrible product the MLS produces and the lack of guts shown by the National Team.  It’s one thing to rough up Ecudor in a friendly, but quite another to actually show up to a World Cup and not look scared.

Soccer players in this country need to stop looking to the whiners around the globe for their role models and start looking up to guys like Wynalda so we can stop playing United Nations soccer and start playing soccer like….AMERICANS.

Girls do it again!

My highschool girls soccer team did it again!  A 4 – 0 win!  They played really well, particularly after a gruelling practice yesterday due to some discipline issues.  They don’t like me very much, but this win should ease the pain….a little.

Cathy Seipp, R.I.P.

I didn’t know her, but I read her nearly everyday.

These people knew her.  Their words are much better than mine.

A bad day, made worse

It’s been a tough day today that still has several hours remaining, but this hurts the worst.

I never talked with Cathy or Maia, but they’re certainly in my thoughts tonight.

A soccer announcement

Usually, when I blog about my high school varsity soccer teams it’s about the boys, not the girls.  That’s because the boys have played before and have experience.  Half my girls have never played, and the fact I even have eleven to play is an accomplishment.  Needless to say that the girls soccer team has never won a soccer game in the three year history of the school…

Until now.

A 2-1 win, on the road no less and I have to say I’ve never been prouder of a team I’ve coached.

Great job ladies!!!!

Cat-astrophe!

This is nuts…

Two stray cats got into a house and attacked three people inside…

I wondered if my cats could be capable of doing that, but they were too busy licking my empty beer bottles looking for a cheap buzz.  Thank goodness for that!

Happy Pi day

Yes, apparently today is “Happy Pi Day”.  To mark that occasion here in our Cow Town….

Q: What do you get when you take a bovine and divide its circumference by its diameter?

A: Cow pi.

You know you laughed…
