I’m in a bit of a hurry this morning, as I’m heading off for a weekend visit to HollyCornblog and Charlie HopBrew this afternoon. Stay tuned for more news on that front.
Meanwhile, the USWNT plays Canada tomorrow at RFK. This game is NOT on TV, unfortunately. I found an interesting thread on BigSoccer discussing Pia’s coaching style and the current status of the team. It includes some video links, as well as a link to a very interesting interview with Pia by Steve Long.
On the goalkeeper front, I read that Nicole Barnhart recently had surgery on her knee. Apparently the procedure was … dubbed “minor” and she’s expected back in time for The Peace Queen Cup. So things continue to feel a little shaky and unclear in the back-up keeper area.
Finally, those conducting the investigation into misconduct by Scott Bloch are trying to decide whether the watchdog was actually a lapdog. Looks like his investigation into improprieties by Condi Rice is one of the areas being scrutinized … and Condi, it appears, has seen happier times.
