it sucks. when the redskins were only selling tickets, they were going for 40 bucks for upperdeck and people found out about it, demand grew and it doesn't help these two teams just played in the finals

Yeah I don't really like these overhyped training sessions. I understand the appeal of seeing the big European teams and stars but the prices are to ridiculous. I went to the AC Milan Chelsea game in Baltimore back in 09. It was an alright game but wasn't worth the price I paid.

Ya, 3 retakes. The keeper stepped off of his line twice in a row, then got a yellow for yelling at the linesman. Keeper stopped the first two, but not the last one. The guy taking the kicks for the first two didn't take the last one, then was subbed out shortly after! Turn around, DC United got a PK on the other end for a hand ball.

Been kind of a weird match, but entertaining, which is awesome since this is the first MLS match I've watched in a while.

3 re-takes? Darn, how'd that go down man?

Hail.

It was 2 re-takes, 3 kicks total.

Kenny Cooper did a stutter step both times he attempted the PK and Hamid came off his line early both times and then Portland's coach had Jewsberry take the 3rd PK (made it with ease), and Cooper was visibly upset. Then about 2 mins later Cooper was pulled out of the game.

US B squad being taken to school by Spain. Just to add, even though it's a friendly, Altidore, Klejstan, and Rogers have no business starting or seeing the field.

So the US team is getting its ass handed to them in soccer. In other news, water is wet.

By the number 1 team in the world who won the World Cup.

Oh, ok. Shows you how much I follow it.

And this is just plain embarrassing. Everyone just ball watching. Bench the whole ****ing team.

2. the playing

3. the uniforms
