Thierry Henry- currently barnstorming in the US with his club, FC Barcelona, as it sells out west coast stadiums in friendlies against LA Galaxy, Seattle Sounders, and Chivas (Mexico)- speaks very intelligently to NY Times' Bill Rhoden about US football prospects and his future interest in coming to play her.

Wayne Drehs at has a fantastic behind-the-scenes look at the harried schedule of the USMNT over the past two months.  It may be the most insightful telling of what happens between games- the logitstics of assembling players, the rush to fit as a team...good stuff.

US Soccer's home page on the dubyadubyadubya is, dare I say, a HUGE imrpovement. Abby Wambach- 100 goals!  Wow!

All 4 Barca goals against Seattle last night, on YouTube.  Can we make anything out of FC's 4-0 drubbing of Sounders vs. its 2-1 squeeker against Galaxy?
