Louis Clark picked a fine time to score his first goal of the season. Clark makes a great drive and beats the keeper helping Syracuse beat USF for the first time since 2007.

You might say Louis Clark is “exploring” new territory with this goal (my bad … I had to).

Austrian daredevil Felix Baumgartner went all Tom Petty on us this weekend and decided to free fall from outer space, completing the highest and fastest skydive of all time.

His 128,100-foot jump reached a maximum speed of 833.9 miles per hour, so yeah, he was basically time traveling. Plus, in case you haven’t heard, he broke the sound barrier (which explains why you probably haven’t heard … get it? Forget it).

In short, Felix pretty much took a weekend of sports achievement and dropped it from Mars. So you’ll have to excuse me if I don’t lose my mind over Messi’s goals or our US victory – this dude just LEAPT FROM OUTER SPACE! WHAT THE HELL, BRO!?

Further explanation (via SportsCenter) after the jump.

With their all-important Cup Qualifier against Guatemala coming up Tuesday, the USMNT held a final public training in Kansas City. The crowd seemed to appreciate it, as did Sporting KC midfielder Graham Zusi who got to represent the national team in front of his home crowd.

The USMNT earned a critical three points with this 2-1 victory over Antigua & Barbuda. Eddie Johnson netted a pair of goals as the US passed its first test on the road to Brazil for the 2014 World Cup.

I know what you’re thinking: man it’s Friday, I’m going out tonight!

I mean, besides that. You’re assuming that Jozy Altidore’s launch of his official website has something to do with him being left off the World Cup qualifier roster. Well, that’s just malarkey (Joe Biden voice).

This website launch was planned long before Jurgen went and lost his marbles, and it’s actually a solid effort. The slide show photos atop the homepage are a little much for me, but that aside Jozy gives us plenty of himself on his site.

We’ve got photos, video, info about his kids foundation, columns about him being left off the US roster, we … wait, what was that? Oh yeah, the issue is addressed. Click on the news tab and you’ll find the opinions of everyone from ESPN, to SI (though no 91st Minute – we’re working on getting placement as we speak).

So give it a visit, and enjoy. It’s the closest you’ll get to seeing Jozy in a US Soccer uniform for a while.

The Wofford men have a pair of secret weapons that were recently uncovered by the 91st Minute. The unranked Terriers knocked off No. 31 Elon 4-3 in OT earlier this week …

here are three things you should know about Wofford and their mysterious victory.

1. Carlos Dominguez Gonzalez had the game of his life. And probably yours, too. All he did was get a hat-trick and the game-winning assist in OT. A sophomore, Gonzalez entered the match with just two career goals before exploding at just the right moment. How did he do it? Here’s a clue …

 

2. Wofford forward Benny Puetter is psychic. How else do you explain this account from Gonzalez: “Right before warmups, Benny came up to me and told me I was going to have a great game. I don’t know why, but he felt that. And it was just one of those games where I finished all of my chances. The last goal I didn’t even see go in, I just knew it was good.”

And so did Puetter.

 

3. It pays to be a team jokester. Gonzalez likes to keep things loose on the field – really loose. “Sometimes our captain Alex Hutchins gets mad at me because he doesn’t think I’m taking things seriously enough. We’ll be doing a warmup and I’ll make fun of something he says … but I just need to be relaxed. I love every moment of soccer, before during and after matches. We have the kind of team where we can make fun of each other.”

Who’s laughing now?

So now that Wayne Rooney has been named captain to England’s national team he’s saying all the right boring things:

“I have cut out a lot of the silly tackles and mistakes I made as a young player. I don’t want to be making the wrong type of headlines and missing games I don’t want to be missing.”

Why not? Do you Wayne! That’s what got you here. I want the guy who shows up to training camp overweight then writes about it and blames it on Good Friday. I want the guy who got sent off against Montenegro in a Euro 2012 qualifier last year and cursed out TV cameras during a match in the World Cup.

That’s Wayne, for better and mostly worse.

If you can’t stand the Rooney, get him out of the captaincy.

Too much good stuff here, it’s like am/pm.

Hands down my favorite part is at 1:35 when an innocent dry willy leads to an aneurism.

What’s your favorite?

Maryland’s doing it, Oregon’s doing it, it was only a matter of time before someone broke it out during a match.

Thank you, Texas A&M. The ladies went full Gangam Style Sunday after scoring a goal against Florida. Sure, they lost the match 2-1, but won the dance off.
