Re: US SOCCER

Did you personally know some of those guys from that '92 team? Your propensity to prop up an admittedly scrappy but relatively underwhelming US side lacks any real logic other than trying to protect a friend or family member. JJ's right, the US is in a position they've never been in so far - they'r...

Anyone remember when US soccer was a thing? The team that the US will send to Qatar in 2022 will be the most talented side ever to represent the US in international competition. It is going to be stacked with young talent. By 2026, that talent will be mature and ready to give a tough match to any s...

I tend not to judge people based on the wide brush of their religious beliefs, but based on their individual actions. Me too, Gil.

“Secular” values that is. Is this good or bad for America? Given the association between Trumpism, Covid denial, and evangelicals, I’d say it’s obviously a good thing.
