Jack Bell on Frankie Hejduk
The New York Times has a blog going that covers the Copa America – which is generally a good thing for people (like me) who want to follow the games without A) the correct cable TV channels and B) patience for the bandwidth-hog that US Soccer’s Matchtracker has become.
Not that I’m enjoying the carnage that is our Copa experience, but “that which doesn’t kill you…“
One silver lining of the blog is this post about Frankie Hejduk
And it seems that every time the long-haired defender is written off by fans and the so-called experts, he manages to insinuate himself back onto the U.S. national team’s roster. Although there are still several years until the next World Cup, Hejduk could conceivably still have a spot on Coach Bob Bradley’s roster for the foreseeable future.
While I’m not sure I believe Frankie could actually be Africa-bound in 3 years, it certainly is interesting to think about…
