Wait Until Next Time
As it always does, Jurgen Klinsmann's US national team roster release dominated the news cycle. As most figured, Landon Donovan didn't make the cut. Simon and Andrew evaluate the 29-man squad and the messages Klinsmann sent with his selections. Does Donovan deserve a spot? Should he accept a Gold Cup call-up?
American soccer stalwart Paul Tamberino also joins the show to discuss refereeing in MLS and the United States. Which players gave him the most guff? Which plays will stick in his craw forever? What is the biggest misconception about the man in the middle? Tamberino tells all.
The Toronto Sun's Kurt Larson also chimes in on the band-aid epidemic in Toronto and what it means for the likes of Danny Koevermans and Luis Silva. Plus, what now for David Beckham? Is Vancouver in position for a CCL berth?

He played for the Tampa Bay Mutiny (RIP) and the New England Revolution. Well, "played" is maybe being a little kind. But he did train a lot.|
