    Buddy boy did an INSANE amount of background checking. I like it. Coach looks spiffy, the tie would’ve been a bit much.


  2. Awwwww man, where are his trademark sweatpants? This should be beyond a running inside TSG joke by now and just be a running inside US Soccer joke that Coach Sweatpants is a part of. It would’ve been so awesome if he showed up here in the sweatsuit.

      Had no idea Scott Bradley was his brother — I think I had him on my fantasy team in like 1992 or something.

      Somewhat dry answers…but we’re still awhile away from the WC.

    I especially liked his answer to “funniest movie you’ve ever seen.” My brain was already starting to move on from this interview as I expected him to say something like The Hangover because it seems like 99% of people will cite the last funny movie they saw as the funniest or best or whatever.

    I think probably the most important thing to take away from this is the fact that Coach Sweatpants was even invited on. Granted, the USSF has probably been doing miles and miles of lobbying to get more exposure from ESPN, but it is extremely important nonetheless. This coverage would have come eventually, but the fact that it is six months before South Africa says a lot about the USSF’s attempt to gain momentum and drum up support and excitement early.

    On a different note, would anybody happen to know where I could find the video of the interview CD9 did with ESPN shortly after his accident? Ives mentioned it in the article he did for soccernet.

    Thanks in advance

    @ KL…

    Very psyched to hear CD9 making remarkable progress. He is an inspiration on many levels…
    Here is the Youtube version…

    On a lighter note, big ups to Coach B for “Animal House”….Cut the cake…I thought Bob was pre-med….and most importantly, we didn’t give up when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor.

      thanks for the link… I’ll definitely be watching it religiously until he steps foot on the pitch.
