Awesome Day

Sarcasm… Two bad things happened today.

  1. Jodie Meeks-  One of my Top 5 favorite UK Basketball players has decided to forego his Senior year and enter the NBA Draft.  This hurst on multiple levels.  Jodie was the 1st player I ever followed during the recruiting process.  While he looked nothing like what I imagined, he was a pure shooter just like I thought.  It also hurst because with him, UK would have been a been a sure fire Final Four team.  Now, we have no real outside threat and that scares me.  We will still be alright without him, but it would have been nice to have him.
  2. USA Soccer- I root for the US, but they have never been and never will be my favorite team.  That title belongs to the Netherlands.  The US played defending World Cup Champion, Italy today in the Confederations Cup.  The US went up 1-0 on a p.k. but ended up getting beat 3-1.  Tim Howard is supposed to be a beast keeper, but he got beat twice on 35+ yard shots today.  One of which was shot by Giuseppe Rossi.  He would later score again.  Funny thing is, he is AMERICAN.  Born in New Jersey.  Maybe Howard just had a bad day, but still, you can’t have those against teams like Italy.  Here are reason why I hate that I care about the US Soccer Team:

Uniforms are gross.

Our ‘best’ player is the most over-rated player in the world.

Can’t keep U.S. talent in the U.S.

-No flash at all.  Boring Soccer.

-Won’t play young players and let them learn on the fly like the better countries.

-Always a disappointment.

-I’m sure there are more, but I can’t think of any at the moment…

 

 

Next up for the Red, White, and Blue?  BRAZIL!  Should be a laugher.

Oh yeah, my Kickball Team did win the company championship today, so that’s one good thing.
