Video: US Team in Poland with Snow, Ambassadors & Whatnot
Let this serve as a reminder that you need to get your backside away from your monitor and in front of a TV screen this afternoon, if only for a few hours. And, no it's not for Beckham's 100th cap (although we congratulate him). The US plays Poland in Krakow this afternoon in case you forgot or didn't know so go home sick or escape to the bar your choice at 3:30 pm ET.
And if you simply must watch the game on "the third screen" go to FoxSoccer.TV.
If I could be all opinionated for one minute I would like to point out a big, super-sized difference between Bob Bradley and Bruce Arena in regards to how they prep their teams. In the run up to the 2006 World Cup Il Bruce's side faced relative-lightweights Morocco, Venezuela, and Latvia. With World Cup Qualifiers about to ramp up Bob Bradley's side is warming up by playing Poland, England and Spain in Europe and Argentina in New York/New Jersey.
Do you see the contrast here? I'm not a Bruce basher by any means but I have to give Bradley mad props for put the boys up against major powers instead of minor players. Good luck and bring me back some Kielbasas.
