It’s kinda cool to see Man U’s Shinji Kagawa in a cool ad like this. I’m sure the guy beatboxing is someone important but I’m not important enough to know who.

Ahead of the US MNT’s road to the World Cup the team talks about qualifying. The big dogs Michael Bradley, Clint Dempsey, and coach Jurgen Klinsmann seem pretty ready and understand the importance of qualifying.

You know things are bad when you’re playing Mexico in a World Cup qualifying match and your coach doesn’t even show up. Yup, that’s an L.

Guyana manager Jamaal Shabazz missed his team’s flight for “personal reasons” and will now get resourceful in an effort to still lead his team … that’s right, people, coach Shabazz is going to instruct his group using Skype.

Guyana is doomed. This is worse than when the Jamaicans showed up to the Olympics without a bobsled then borrowed one and randomly named it Cool Runnings.

I just hope the team has good audio in the stadium or things could get pretty interesting out there …

Coach, I can’t hear you! Did you say free kick or cheese whiz?

Kayla Varner may not use her hands on the soccer field, but she can sure catch. Rumor has it the BYU women’s soccer player has caught Washington Nationals rookie Bryce Harper – or should we say, he’s caught her?

That’s a clown question, bro … my bad.

Thanks to Busted Coverage, the rumor mill is spinning about the budding love between the youngsters and there are pictures to prove it.

We’re not at all surprised. As Matt Barkley well knows, soccer players make the best girlfriends.

A sign of her loyalty after the jump.

Just so you know, the three-banded armadillo (the choice for mascot of the 2014 World Cup) is an endangered species. And, apparently, so is its inflatable version.

For the second time in less than a week some yahoo attacked the symbol of the games forcing it to be taken down from its spot near Brasilia’s Esplanade of the Ministries.

Last week another model was shanked in the southern city of Porto Alegre making this a violent trend.

The irony in all of this is that three-banded armadillos are unique in that they can roll into a ball to defend themselves from predators. Right … sure they can.

Once again, a quality production by Furman athletics here. The Paladins rallied from a  2-0 deficit and won it in overtime on a game-winner from Michael Gandier.

Check out the crowd, too! From the equalizer, at about 2:05, to the winner the Furman Faithful really set a great stage.

If this little guy is truly about that goalie life then this may be the best way to train him.

Still, I’m going to recommend that this father have his father license revoked. He’s just not qualified to play with his son alone.

Exhibit A: He shushes the camera before firing off a grown man strike to his baby-year-old son. It was as if he had it planned all along.

Exhibit B: WHO KICKS THE BALL THAT HARD AT A CHILD?! An unfit father, that’s who.

Yup, hand him over to your wife. It’s back to the garage for you buddy.

Good talk, coach, but uhh … what about Jozy?

Yeah, I realize we can’t underestimate Antigua … or Barbuda for that matter, but uhh, where’s Jozy?

Three teams, seven points, huh? Good stuff. But uhh, I heard neither Landon Donovan nor Brek Shea are making the trip … doesn’t that leave two spots?

So uhh, why not take Jozy? How bout it coach?

This is truly art imitating life. I agree with every bit of this animation including the part where Luis Suarez studies Bambi for diving techniques. Well done Taiwanese animation creator people.

Boot Review: Concord Techno

Written by Jahmal Corner

The Concord Techno is a boot that lies far outside the specter of the big boys on the market, but that doesn’t mean you can automatically throw them in a dumpster. There are plenty of positives to take from these, starting with that sharp Blackout colorway. It is a look that leaves these boots in a bracket of their own and displays a slightly more serious nature from Concord, one that says we are more about performance than producing a visually appealing boot that takes the headlines for the wrong reasons.

Testing is where you really find the positives and the negatives of this one – for the full scoop, head over to SoccerCleats101 for everything you need to know about the boot.
