Five Months Later…October to March 14th…

Five months...

• Charlie Davies is working valiantly, racing the hourglass to make it back to the place where his national team career took off.

• Bob Bradley is still searching for players, formations, and options among realizations in CD9′s absence.

• Davies partner in crime, Jozy Altidore, is rising to the challenge and responsibility of starring on the front line, showing yet again in club ball yesterday against Arsenal that maturation is the only thing standing in the way of him being a special player.

It was October 14th when US Soccer fans stood up in support of a player who epitomizes the specific spirit of the Yanks. It doesn’t seem like anyone is sitting down yet.

Thank you to everyone who spread the word the past 24 hours and participated at RFK, in bars, their home and online. The fans (and team) represented well for Charlie and we hope it lifted his spirits.

Baltimore Brigade was right on with the #9s for CD, even coming equipped with 700 to pass out at RFK. The American Outlaws helped a bunch getting the word out and on the ground in DC. And a group of us were even standing and holding them up at a bar in San Diego as well.

Here’s an AP article talking about The 9th Minutes Salute. And check out No Short Corners for a great (desktop size) image.

(The post that helped get it going is here. And you can find TSG’s match review here.)
