Last Night's Party: MLS Jamaicans Made Out Better Than the USMNT's Germericans
While the MLSers of the USMNT were busy not getting it done in Nashville last night, the MLSers of Jamaica --Dane Richards, Omar Cummings and Donovan Ricketts-- were tied up with beating El Salvador 3-2 on the road.
Richards, once of the greatest friendly match players in CONCACAF history, copped a brace and Omar Cummings snagged the difference-making third goal. Ricketts gave up two on the other end but one of them was definitely not his fault. The other one probably wasn't either...if you ask him.
BTW the term "Germericans" was coined by this guy. He should trademark it. Also if I was young, Black and single as opposed to old, Black and married I would join the U.S. military and request a posting in Germany because brothas seem to do well with the native ladies.
Serving your country is an honor and a gift. Planting seeds (see Timothy Chandler, Jermaine Jones, David Yelldell, and even Josh Wicks) to be cultivated in a soccer-rich culture then exported to the USMNT is just icing on the cake. A big, fat, U.S. Soccer-flavored cake.
