USA VS. HONDURAS TONIGHT!

23 01 2010

Well, we did it. Kyle, Robbie, and I all made the 18 man roster for the game against Honduras.

Make sure to check it out tonight at 6pm @ the HDC if you’re in Carson, California or on the Fox Soccer Channel at 9pm EST. It’s always great to go into these camps and see where your game’s at and with the opportunity to see if you can play at this level. Tonight should definitely be a good test for everyone.

It was a long and challenging camp but it definitely pays off to wear US colors at the end. Wish us luck and and thanks for all your support!

Help my boy Chris Wingert in getting the top prize! If you find it within yourself and can contribute please do, its only $10.00 and for the big ballas the limit is yours…

As of now, Kristine Lilly is dominating both categories and can take home the $20,000 grand prize? But with your help Chris Wingert can dethrone the top-seed. There are plenty of huge names in this race but what more would it mean if one of ours wins. Two championships for Chris in less then 3 months would be DOPE!  Heres a direct web address to donate!

After nearly a month of stiff competition, 55 top athletes have fought the good fight to raise over $100,000 for charity. However, sports fans know that the most compelling and crucial moment of every competition is the homestretch. Whether its Manning leading the Colts to a game winning touchdown or Kobe making yet another buzzer beater, great athletes make a name for themselves in the final moments of a game.

With just a few donors separating the winners and the losers, your support could be just what your favorite athlete needs. Between now and Friday, January 15th, visitwww.globalgiving.org/athletes-for-hope to donate or see which athletes have what it takes to finish the race strong and raise the most money for their cause.

Why Act Now? Ever wish for a miracle when your team is down big? Well, today (Jan.12) is a bonus day – when the athletes who raise the most money and unique donors on that day will earn an additional $500. That means your $10 donation could put your favorite athlete over the top!






NIKE’S TOTAL 90 ASCENTE FOOTBALL

12 01 2010

Yesterday, we were able to tryout Nike’s newest Ball, the “Nike Total 90 Ascente Football.”  So far, so good.  I haven’t seen too much movement on it which is good, since usually when new balls make their way into the league, they aren’t exactly made for the GK’s so to say.

The balls in MLS are made to move and seeing them first hand everyday, trust me it’s not as easy as it looks to save one. From a GK point of view, thank you, NIKE, for making a true ball and giving us a better chance at keeping those zero’s.

Make sure to check out the video below!
