Some U.S. news tidbits

Sad news from the U-17 World Cup. Those damn Italians knocked out our brave young American team 2-1 in the second round.

Missing a penalty kick? Unacceptable. That kid is banned from the national team.

Like I predicted a couple days ago, and like he deserves, Chivas USA's Zach Thornton was named MLS Goalkeeper of the Year.

It's the second time he's earned the award. Also like I predicted Steve Ralston won the Fairplay Award. Chicago won the team fairplay award.

Finally, in bizarre news, FC Dallas is rumored to be considering Jorge Campos for its technical director position.

Sounds like a great move. Could bring some nice name-recognition to the league.
