It’s time for me to get off my ass and do another episode of football news.  Tonight the beer of choice is Bud Light and we’re gonna move away from In Arsene We Trust’s indie music.  Tonight the song is “Your Own Worst Enemy” and comes courtesy of the Boss.  I’ll let you interpret the lyrics however you like.

First things first:  I’m a fan of Bob Bradley.  Saying that…..Now I’m not gonna say that they’re giving Bob Bradley too much credit, but they might be reading a little too much into this whole leaving Brian Ching at home thing.  Honestly, it probably came down to Ching’s health, Buddle’s ability to play the holding role, and Robbie Findley’s smile…

You better believe your pale ass I'm happy, bitch.

Wanna know when your favorite and least favorite teams are showing up in South Africa?  If so, check out this link.  If not, please continue.

I don’t think at any point will I tire of information on this team.  It’s just a shame that the news coverage of this team will only persist for a few weeks, as they have no chance in H-E-double hockey sticks of getting past the group stage…..which is what makes articles like this all the more exciting.

The gist of these two articles, which work well as companion pieces, give a glimpse of hope for the United States.  The midfield is not settled for Capello’s squad and the solution, Gareth Barry, isn’t healthy(sound reminiscent to our defensive issues?).

In one sense, Maradona seems to be a bit desperate to garner attention as opposed to credibility.  Then again, this isn’t really risky when considering how poorly his side has performed leading up to the World Cup.  Besides, people his age did this sort of thing every Thursday night in the 70’s and 80’s.  I’m not impressed.

At this point, the injuries are becoming more than just a concern to the chances of the German national squad.  Serbia and Ghana have to be licking their chops at the rare opportunity to catch the German team at one of its weakest moments. I won’t go so far to predict them falling out before the knockout rounds.  On the other hand, I can easily for see the United States finishing 2nd in their group and meeting a much weaker opponent in the knockout rounds than first expected.  Looks promising.
