USA vs. Canada 2013: Open Discussion Thread, Talk Amongst Yourselves

Brek Shea will be one of the USMNT fringe players fighting for a spot tonight - Jamie Sabau

The US Men's National Team is playing in their Camp Cupcake tune-up match against Canada this evening, in a game otherwise known as the "Who Wants To Play Against Honduras?" gala event. Canada's not bringing their best team, either, but if their recent performances are any indication, the Yanks should win in a veritable bloodbath.

Let's be clear about something right away: the United States has absolutely nothing invested in this match against Canada. Competitively, it's a meaningless exercise. For a lot of these players, though, it's an opportunity to get into Jurgen Klinsmann's immediate consciousness, and maybe even play their way into his plans for the World Cup Qualifier against Honduras on February 6th.

Furthermore, screw it. I like to win. This game matters to me.

The lineups are posted below. In the comments, feel free to talk about the game, comment on soccer in general, start a Revolution discussion, chat about life, or really anything at all. Like it says in the title, talk amongst yourselves!
