      No, really, it doesn’t, does it? None of our three group stage opponents are going to bunker like ROI did.

    I’m guessing this kind of affair has two benefits to NT/US Soccer. First, it brings in money. And, second, it gives everyone involved a chance to celebrate.

    I went to the game at Avaya….great atmosphere, packed house and tons of love goo on Mothers Day. But we sucked. There were some spots…a couple of nice chances from ARod that weren’t finished, some good connecting and Christen Press was the best player on the pitch, but if this is what we will see in the WC we are in trouble. Abby is still dominant in the air, but lets be real…she should not be a starter unless we have major injury problems. Alex is injured again…what is up with Syd? She looks lost out there. Julie Johnston is a beast on set pieces (this makes Abby that much less necessary), and I am becoming more of a fan of Kling out left

    What was kind of sad was watching the USWNT play Abbyball for the first 45 minutes (couldn’t bring myself to watch the second half…). Yes, whipping crosses onto Abby’s head is gonna work against Ireland because they’re just not technically skilled enough to stop that. Against Sweden, or France, or Germany? No so much.

    I “get” what these friendlies are for, but the extra cash and the publicity seem like a poor exchange for rehearsing the bad habits that have brought the USWNT nothing but trouble when employed against the world’s better sides. Ugh
