Soccer….Family Style

Keep Calm and Qualify

There’s been a whole bunch of panic this week about US Soccer. Players hurt, players sick, questions of who’s been called up and who hasn’t….wrenching of hands and stomachs across the US Soccer family of supporters. I need you all to keep calm out there, because you’re making me feel old.

We’ve been here before. If you’ve watched US Soccer for a few decades, you know, qualifying in CONCACAF is hardly ever fun or easy, but we usually find a way to squeak it out. I know, I know….I had tickets to the Olympic qualifier in KC that never was, but this is not the same thing. We likely need 4 points out of the next 2 games, and that’s achievable. We have good players that are not Donovan or Jozy. I’m excited to see Graham Zusi light it up, Michael Bradley is back in, and I’m fired up to watch Alan Gordon head one past the defensive wall I’m sure Antigua and Barbuda will throw up.

So head out to your nearest American Outlaws, Sam’s Army, or US Soccer bar, grab a beer, and let’s support our boys into the final round of qualifying for Brazil. It takes more than two island nationals to hold us back!
