From the absurd to the engaging, USA soccer blog offers a behind the scenes look: Entry #28b: June 7, 12:49 p.m. (6:49 a.m ET) ... and speaking of Keller and Hahnemann, we can confirm that they've returned intact from Tuesday night's Tool concert. They even got some love on the band's blog on their web site: "No problems to report other than ... these strange dudes in the Tool dressing room. Wait a second, they're members of the U.S. World Cup soccer team (that's what's keeping the band from taking the stage on time)." Focus boys. FOCUS!

Texan: that third link is great. I'm digging the 1974 Zaire shirt.

That Zaire jersey looks like the kinds of shirts I see doofuses wearing down on Queen St West.

mkn, pooh-pooh it all you want, but I totally want one of those Zaire ones. Or the Germany ones that look like the old Vancouver Canucks abominations.

I might cop one of those '86 Argentina joints; but I'll leave it in the Hand of God.

Argentina v. Ivory Coast. the ref is a racist and I have never seen a bigger collection of wimps fromm Argentina. the next guy from Argentina that falls down and grabs his leg (coming up lame) should be shot on the field. They and the ref are ruining a great game.
