Jeff Agoos Comes Out...of Retirement

American defender Jeff Agoos has come out of retirement and will play for the San Jose Earthquakes this season. Public Relations Director Shirley Jo King has issued a press release stating that Agoos will wear uniform number 14. Realistically, Agoos will probably not start or even contribute seriously to the Earthquakes this season, but may appear off the bench. Instead of his customary central defender position, Agoos will likely play in the defensive midfield or as a wing back, where his defensive lapses will do less damage. Looking forward to seeing what Jeff Agoos can do on his 42-year-old legs.

For the record, Jeff Agoos has 134 caps for the USMNT. Only Cobi Jones with a record 164 caps has more. Old man Agoos is soon to be passed on the all-time caps sheet by Landon Donovan with 130 caps. Let’s see if Jeff Agoos can still play this game. Sort of makes you wonder who will come out of retirement next.

History Does Not Repeat

First and foremost, happy 21st birthday to Timothy Chandler today. Chandler earned his first start in his second appearance for the USMNT against Paraguay in Nashville.

I was optimistic tonight when I followed the game online and saw that the U.S. had gone down 1-0 to a South American opponent in a friendly. After all, on Saturday we ended the first half against Argentina down 1-0 and went on to tie the match 1-1 in a very pleasing match for the US that solidified many of our selections. Most of the same lineup that created the second half comeback against Argentina started today.

Cause That's How I Roll

Florida, San Padre Island, Myrtle Beach? Please. Grenada bitches... cause I can. While you're living the moderately good life, I'm here chilling curbside. Just me, some beer and the wifey.

In the meantime, why don't you enjoy a little something something to take your mind off that work of yours?

Be There or Be Square

Looks like the US picked up another good friendly. This one as a warm up for the Gold Cup.

Now usually, friendlies are a time for a team to pick up an opponent with similar styles/formation of your upcoming opponents. Also, they are usually someone you can beat up on a little.

Well... Meet the US opponent for June 4th in Foxborough, MA.

Ooops... wrong one. Here you go:
