My Name Is Herculez & I Score Goals

Okay, last one guys. Next grouping of pictures we’ll bundle into one post and we’ll be back to our regularly scheduled analytical programming later today.

This one, though, is priceless. Herculez Gomez, back in a USA kit.

The weight of the free world...on my shoulders...

The Don’t Tread Video Contest Is On!

Donkey Kong! The Don’t Tread Video Contest is officially underway sponsored by The Shin Guardian, the American Outlaws, The Yanks Are Coming, and Concave soccer cleats. You gotta love Concave stepping up even through they’re out of the UK–thanks guys!

Don't Tread on Me Challenge!For the next week, ending at the stroke of midnight PST Thursday morning June 2nd, the eight videos below you will compete to be the absolute winner of Don’t Tread Challenge for the most insanely awesome video that gets fans, uber and wagon jumpers, flat-out FIRED UP for the USA in South Africa.

But….what’s more important about this contest is you….yes YOU the voter can send this post or one of the videos to that cute girl in the corner office or your uncle who only roots for Univeristy of Texas football and get them fired up for the biggest USA sports event since….well Germany in 2006.

We’re angling for serious voter count.

To the victor go the following spoils:

• 1 American Outlaws “We Are Not Sam’s Army In the Stands In Hartford” scarf

• 1 The Yanks Are Coming, well, “The Yanks Are Coming” t-shirt

• 1 pair Concave soccer cleats

• 1 mystery prize from The Shin Guardian

And all this will ship quite quickly to be there in time to be all dolled up for June 12th.

The rules are simple. Each “reader” (by IP address) can vote once per day.


The goal is promoting the team and in turn on of these fine creators will get some USMNT goodies.

The Beginning Of The South Africa 23

Air Bradley One enroute to Redemption, South Africa

Goalie (3):

Tim Howard, Brad Guzan, Marcus Hahnemann


Defense (7):

Steve Cherundolo, Jonathan Spector, Oguchi Onyewu, Jay DeMerit, Carlos Bocanegra, Clarence Goodson, Jonathan Bornstein


ESPN person, "So you guys are going where again?"

Midfield (9):

Clint Dempsey, Landon Donovan, Michael Bradley, Maurice Edu, Ricardo Clark, Jose Torres, Stu Holden, Benny Feilhaber, DaMarcus Beasley


Striker (4):

Jozy Altidore, Edson Buddle, Herculez Gomez, Robbie Findley

There in spirit….Charlie Davies….

• We have some inkling where Clint Dempsey will start. We think. Is Bradley married to the 4-4-2?

• Incredulous that Brian Ching was cut, but the US kept forcing the ball to Buddle in tight corners to open up last night and he responded amirably.

• I told you Robbie Findley had the lead going into camp. Mark my words, Bradley likes his defense first and speed. He certainly has to show better.

• Seven defenders. Enough confidence in Gooch. Enough confidence in the health of Boca and DeMerit. Maybe Bradley’s trying some disinformation with England to keep Crouch out of the starting line-up? Half-kidding.

Plus, you know what you’ll get with Bornstein; you don’t know what you’ll get with Pearce. Read our player rating on him from last evening.
