First of all our good friend Julio Caballero of the Miami Ultras gave us the heads up that Miami FC won their preseason match vs Barry University 3-1. More on that later today.
I'm still shocked to see how Maradona's Argentina lost 6-1 to Bolivia! I don't want to talk bad about Bolivia but no way are they that good to beat Argentina so bad. It's going to be fun reading what the Argentine press says about Maradona.
Did you kids see Jozy Altidore tonight? He was on fire! It's good to see the future of U.S. Soccer looking so bright.

I don't know Bradley, I think Jozy Altidore has earned his spot as a starter, not only because of the hat trick but because he came off the bench against El Salvador and scored. Call me crazy but 4 goals in 2 games is enough to have "earned" a spot to me!
