Of two minds

July 5, 2009 -- "Once the irrelevance of the current CONCACAF Gold Cup is out of the way at the end of this month, U.S. national team coaches can turn their attention to something more meaningful than an over-hyped tournament that should be played every four years, not every two."

July 27, 2009 -- "After years in the wilderness, the red, white and green is once again a force to be reckoned with on the soccer field."

I would love to read Grahame Jones explain how winning an irrelevant tournament constitutes becoming a force to be reckoned with.
