As the guys head out for dinner on the town, a few observations of the goings on:
Heath Pearce and Benny Feilhaber spent the afternoon at the movies seeing "Superbad." Special mention to Heath's tremendously turquoise San Jose Sharks t-shirt that depicted what is undoubtedly one of the finest logos in all of sports.
Clint Dempsey searched the training room for his runners that he wanted to wear out to dinner at Fogo de Chão. The MNT Blog sought to help out, but even after emptying all the shoe bags, the mystery runners remained unaccounted for. Clint decided to call the one person who would know: Jesse, our equipment guy. Jesse was just boarding the plane to come to Chicago after a weekend of DMB at The Gorge in Washington (state that is), but of course he still knew the answer to Clint’s query. “Oh yeah!” said Clint, as he hung up the phone, “Now I remember.” Their whereabouts: on the feet of one of Clint’s friends. Turns out he gave them away after the Sweden match. “I totally forgot about that,” said Clint, who walked next door to the training room to try his luck elsewhere. “EJ, man, I need some shoes. What size are you?”
