    what, no love for David Beckham's 5-month "give my whole salary to charity" stint with PSG?

    his gesture didn't move me in any way but we did get this awesome little tidbit from Keano

    Robbie Keane on his convo with Beckham yesterday: "He said he was in a charitable mood so I asked him for his Rolls Royce. He said no."

    I spaced out and missed this. I would say it was for the best, but I'm as frustrated seeing the result as I would have been watching, I think.

    Yeah, I missed out due to the early start as well. Figured 6 or 7pm start. These CONCACAF teams do whatever it takes to make it as difficult as possible on their opponents.

    Mexico drew at home and the third game also ended in a draw. Good results for us. I wasn't expecting 3 points anyways so 0 instead of 1 isn't a big deal. Klinnsman sucks but they'll squeak out enough points to qualify.

    frustrating game. Defense with some new faces was fairly decent, but we were vulnerable to counter attack and never had any sense of a possession game like honduras did. Jozy is in good form with his club team, but always seems to be one step behind with the national team.
    They got beat first on a magnificent bicycle kick. 2nd goal, I'll admit, Omar fell a liiiitle asleep.

    the midfielder for midfielder subs were a little weird. still would've like to see torres or gomez get some action but I'm succinctly biased in favor of them

    the draws from other countries are okay, but it doesn't get any easier as the next two games are home to costa rica and away at azteca in mexico. Jamaica looked tough. This group is not going to be easy by any means.

    Yeah he misses the return leg. That sucks, but hopefully they'll still get through, and he'd start fresh of card accumulation going forward..
