"One of the recent [sayings] that I’ve seen that I like is, ‘The lion doesn’t care about the opinion of the sheep.’ I’ll leave it at that. It’s pretty fitting.”

-- U.S. national team captain Michael Bradley with his reaction to Fox Sports commentator Alexi Lalas' comments critical of the national team performance and particular players following the recent World Cup qualifiers. (SportsNet)

    I remember another old saying, Don't lay eggs in eggs in October. It too is fitting.

    What??? AL should not talk so much about "getting off my lawn..." But, what's this about eggs in October? Whattayawant, scrambled or huevos rancheros?

    One to many eggs in my old saying. Point is, don't worry about others and concentrate on getting to Russia. I like all egg preps, except those in cans-C rats, I know you know Ric. Yuck.

    Sheeps compared to Lalas? How insulting to sheeps! Alexis Lalas is more appropiately comparee to a Maggot.

    Okay guys, I'm a little late to the party. I watched the Lalas "rant". I took it more as a, "Come on guys, get your act together!", moment. I watched that game, too, and the team couldn't seem to "click" as they usually do. Couldn't get it out of gear, so to speak. I didn't find Lalas offensive, even though he singled out players, except for his comment on Pulisic. Growing up with my dad in the Air Force, there were occasions when my dad would say, "Straighten up and fly right." Essentially, that's what Lalas was saying.
