Musket Rounds: USMNT, Alternate Channels, Brettschneider, Summer Soccer, And More


It's the day before matchday, folks! The New England Revolution are likely already in DC preparing to return the favor of a home loss to United after Chris Pontius stole a point from the Revs a few weeks ago at Gillette. Meanwhile, in the world of soccer, there have been some interesting developments. The USMNT 23-man roster was finalized, Montreal signed a DP, and the 2014 World Cup is apparently going to be played at construction sites in the middle of the Amazon.

Such is life. On to the Rounds.

A Few Minutes With … Blake Brettschneider | New England Revolution
Blake seems like a pretty down-to-earth kid who just appreciates the opportunity he's been given, which is nice. Also, he's a golfer. I should try to get him to play in my dad's annual tournament this summer.

So Montreal has already signed their DP. Seems like they have a bit of a flair for the Italian, am I right? All the rumors for any other Italian player (except Del Piero) are pointing there, too.

The 2014 World Cup in Brazil is going to be a disaster. That's all I'm going to say. And that's truly disappointing, because Brazil is a nation that should be able to pull it off and do it well.

Klinsmann Chooses His 23 - Yanks Abroad
Jurgen Klinsmann has cut his camp roster down to 23 players to travel with the team. Overall, his cuts seem fairly logical and not much unexpected, especially when you consider that Juan Agudelo hasn't played much, nor played well, in recent weeks.
