ExtraTime Radio: Quakes' Chris Wondolowski on USMNT heroics and a new era in San Jose

Same As It Ever Was?

Does Chris Wondolowski ever get tired of the way people characterize his goals? After scoring two more in the US national team's win over South Korea on Saturday in Los Angeles, the guys welcome on the San Jose Earthquakes star to discuss public reaction to his nose for the goal and how he feels he did during the annual January camp. He also discusses the Quakes' rebrand, if he failed to love up to his Designated Player status last year and what his life is like now that he's a father.

The guys discuss whether the Columbus Crew need a new logo, if Benji Joya will make a difference in MLS and if soccer fans should be upset by the latest dig from ESPN columnist Bill Simmons. And after his team lost the Super Bowl on Sunday, Nick wonders if friends should avoid kicking eachother while they're down when the big game doesn't go their way.
