Do we really need to rehash the 4-0 slaughter of the USMNT by Spain on Saturday? (You can always read the piece I wrote for Aerys Sports on the subject.) I was chatting with a friend in Germany, who pointed out that Spain destroyed Germany too, and I guess I’ll claim a victory in the idea that many Americans believed in the US’s ability to compete with the reigning World Cup champions.

Moving on. Gold Cup has started, and I’m leaving today for a road trip to Detroit for the USMNT opening game against Canada. I’s excited to see my American Outlaws buddies, and excited to debut our new 20 x 30 US flag in the stadium! We decided that we needed a couple days on our own, so the kids are staying home this trip, resting up for their road trip to Kansas City next week. between Gold Cup and the USWNT playing in the Women’s World Cup in Germany, it should be a pretty great summer for US Soccer fans. Especially if the dramatic win over Mexico in USWNT’s warm up is any indication.

Look for the Midwest Mama flag at the Detroit and KC games, and for updates here soon!!
