Friedel is 31, making him 35 in 2006. Whether he will be retired from international play remains to be seen. I'm sure he'll still be playing at a club level. Hell, look at Carlos Valderrama. He's *41* and still plays in MLS!

Yes, but the MLS also has an international reputation of being a harborer of old players.

As a goalkeeper at 35, I can see Friedel playing in one more Cup; he's just now shown the world how good he is, and if he can keep at that level, or even pretty close to it, there's no question he'll be around for '06. Goalies seem to have a longer soccer life than the other players - isn't Kahn 34 himself? (I don't know where I heard that from, though.) I have no idea who's behind Friedel, hadn't even heard of Thorton until now. Keller's older than Friedel, Meola (the 3rd-string) is really old already...

I heard a nasty rumor that only one announce team is even IN Korea for the Cup - is that Edwards? (Although it did grate just a little bit...)

and you're so likeable, people don't really care.

    I mean, if the US made it to the finals of the World Cup, where "we don't belong since we hate soccer," isn't that just the kind of thing that would motiavte an already unbalanced mind to "get revenge" on the Great Satan?


Absolutely not. There is nothing that would cause a terrorist group to lose more supporters than interrupting the world's most popular sporting event, no matter WHO is in the finals.





I was born in a manger, like that other guy. You know, he wore a hat?

Jack Edwards and Ty Keough are in Korea, for sure. I'm not sure about That Other Play-by-Play Guy and Tommy Smyth. All I know is Smyth has been appearing on Sportscenter and ESPN News as a World Cup analyst so he's probably not over there.
