I'm a fan of the phantom who scored a goal in Panama City.

And the vast majority of the U.S. will not care.

Perhaps now they can fire the Jokers in charge and get back to business.

I only feel bad for Pulisic. If I never see Jozy Altidore and Michael Bradley again I'll be a happy man.

The bigger joke is the fact that CONCACAF has 3.5 World Cup spots while CONMEBOL (with 4 top-10 ranked teams) only has one more (4.5).

I'm still trying to figure out in what universe starting both Gonzo and Matt Besler over Geoff Cameron (who presumably was healthy enough to make the roster) makes sense.

The same universe where it makes more sense for our better players to come back to MLS instead of trying to succeed in Europe.

At least among the 25-30 yo player pool, there just isn't enough competition for guys to push themselves.

Altidore's competition is guys like Jordan Morris, Gyasi Zardes and 35-year-old Clint Dempsey. Bradley's competition is Dax McCarty, Kyle Beckerman, etc. No incentive for these guys not to slum it in MLS.

I do feel a little bit bad for Bradley though. He was bossing it at a mid-table Italian side and made a very ambitious (and in hindsight unwise) decision to join Roma that ended up eating 2 years of his prime.

The bigger joke is that this is a thread.

I mean, like most Americans, I didn't even hear about it until after it happened.

The fact that we lack a devoted functional soccer thread but this exists... what's the point of wordless mockery?

The US's dedication to soccer can best be illustrated by the fact that the vast majority of my soccer watching friends have automatically moved on to our secondary team. Imagine fans from Mexico doing that.

US Soccer is like pro football in Los Angeles. We just have too many other options to care all that much.

A country of 323 million people and billions and billions of dollars worth of resources being poured into soccer missing the biggest sporting event on the planet because you couldn't beat Trinidad and Tobago?

Yeah, that's a catastrophic embarrassment and you deserve to cop it from all angles.

Definitely embarrassing. And yet, at the moment I care WAY more about the MLB playoffs and College Football than the USMNT missing the World Cup.

PS. Go Dodgers!
