Happy Thursday Spursland! OK let me just say this at the top.  For those of you who actually read the thoughts that leak out of my skull and land on the internet hear you know that occasionally the powers that be around here let me slip something out that is a littler controversial.  Usually those aren't the things that cause a stink.  It's the less controversial stuff that brings the death threats.  Well somewhere below there is something that might piss a few people off.  Just be forewarned.

And now the "news"

The USWNT Has A Problem They Can't Fix-SB Nation Soccer

Could Dempsey's Temper Tantrum Leave Him Suspended For The Gold Cup?-SB Nation Soccer

Yes it could, which would suck, but then again he is getting old and it would be cool to give some of the new kids a shot in there, ya know.  Separate from that though, this event lends further (but not definitive) proof to a theory I have had ever since that rap video came out. I believe it is possible that hanging out with Clint Dempsey would be really really unenjoyable. Like I really feel that if anyone hung out with him alone in his living room for 20 minutes you would walk away kind of hating him.  A lot.  like you would make it your business in the future when meeting new people who like soccer to purposely steer conversations towards a subject that will allow you to tell the story and evangelize your opinions on him.

Look At This GoPro Video OF A Couple Doing Crazy Gymnastics Stuff On A Surfboard-SB Nation

Spoiler alert, the surfboard is just sitting on the beach so it's a lot like a more athletic and team oriented version of that scene from point break where the girl tells Keanu "you're gonna be fish food".  God what a great movie that was #utahgetmetwo
