What They're Saying: Tim Ream

“First, it was through the little town of Annapolis and then you come through the gates and you see all the buildings and the little boats and everyone in uniform and you respect them for what they are doing, possibly giving their lives, and putting their lives on the line for us to allow us to do what we do. To be here is special."

-- U.S. national team defender Tim Ream, who said he had goosebumps the first time he drove into the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, where the USA has been practicing ahead of its first Gold Cup tune-up game. (Annapolis Capital Gazette)

    Bravo Tim!

    Let us never forget the sacrifice and commitment our armed forces (and first responders) make every day, including the possibility of sacrificing their own life to secure our freedom and our way of life.

    Kudos to US Soccer for selecting this venue to prepare, especially their mindset. In the military world, failure is not an option (don't just lose the match, likely lost their life and/or the lives of their TEAMmates). You can't be around military units and not feel their ethos ... mission always comes first and people never come second! Put those two together with enough talent and ok tactics, you've got a winning formula.
