U.S. Starts the Gold Cup with a Win

The U.S. MNT started their defense of the CONCACAF Gold Cup in style, beating Grenada 4-0 at Seattle's Qwest Field on Saturday. Robbie Rogers led the charge, netting a goal and also tallying two assists, while Freddy Adu, Stuart Holden (in his first appearance for the MNT), and Charlie Davies rounded out the scoring.

Oh, and Happy Independence Day everybody!

Random question: Why did the Grenade team captain give Cherundolo a plaque before the game?

Great Game guys!!

I was in a party watching the game on a laptop. Could not pay full attention to the game; you all play really good. The back line was always organized. I also like Robbie Rogers, Kyle Beckerman, Freddy Adu, C. Davis and the 2 guys that gave the assists for the 3rd and 4th goal. I guess I am mentioning the entire team :o)
