Okay, Bigsoccer denizens, I offer you a challenge. Try to convince me to be even the slightest bit excited about this weekend’s USA-Sweden friendly.
I know that some of you out there are the kind of foaming-at-the-mouth, “OMG!!! WE NEED TO FIRE BRADLEY NOW BECAUSE HE HASN’T CALLED UP X FOR THIS CRITICAL MATCH AGAINST MONTSERRAT” USMNT fans who tend to drive me bananas.
Well, today I ask to bring me your bananas. Please convince me why I should spend two hours of my life to watch a lot of guys who I’ve already seen and who aren’t likely to play a big role in the first batch of qualifiers mess about in front of 6,000 (maybe) at HDC?
