The legend that is Mia Hamm. Great moments in Team USA history.

Safe to say Allison & I had a blast at the USA-Canada game tonight. Cheering with the Back 4 Patrioteer was amazing.

These ladies have my heart.

Anyone going to the match in Columbus?

He [Bob Bradley] and his players may have the means to unite one of the most dangerous and divided places on the African continent, because the only thing that seems to keep the 84 million people of Egypt together is their rapturous love of soccer, and the quest of its national team to qualify for the 2014 World Cup.

For me, it’s an honour and a privilege to play for Aston Villa Football Club and to commit my future long-term. - Brad Guzan // July 6, 2013

Sad to hear Holden is experiencing yet another physical setback (torn ACL in his right knee) but he’ll come back again, just as he always has. Love this graphic from oliviabrestalcreative

You got this, Stu.

Totally okay with the fact that my NBA boyfriend, Joakim Noah, played in the Steve Nash Foundation’s pick-up match earlier this week. He even scored the winning goal and was Team USA’s MVP.

“I’m gonna have to talk to some people about him playing for USA soccer,” joked Onyewu, who exchanged phone numbers with Noah after the game.

Last night was one of those nights that you know is going to be amazing but you just hope that it lives up to the high expectations that you have set.

When US Soccer announced that they would be holding a watch party for last night’s World Cup Qualifier I marked it on the calendar immediately. As strange as it sounds, US Soccer doesn’t hold that many events in Chicago like these despite their offices being right down the street from Grant Park. The crowd was great, I had some great company even though my partner in crime Nicole was out of town, and US pulled out the win in the second half - with a goal from Jozy no less. Look out. Here we come Brazil, that Altidore boy is on fire.

One can only hope that there will be more watch parties like this to come.

ps - not to gloat but I predicted that we would win 1-nil with a point from Jozy in the second half. I need to start placing bets on these things…
