Yesterday marked the end of the road for the US soccer team, despite Tim Howard standing on his head to keep the game within reach. While it hurts now, it's pretty clear to me that we are heading in the right direction under Jurgen Klinsmann, and in 2018, we should be much improved as Jon Brooks, Yedlin, Green, and Zelalem, who all will be under 25 then, and have a lot more experience under their belts.
For the rest of the World Cup, I'll continue to root for the Netherlands to win it all, and I'm hoping that they reach, and play Columbia in the finals. Robben vs. James just seems too good a matchup to pass on.
In Titans' news, Delanie Walker talks about his goals for this season, and lofty but attainable goals those are.
Paul Kuharsky writes about Jake Locker's mechanics.
Who are the Titans' under and overpaid players? Easy answer, KW and JC are both grossly underpaid.
