American soccer notes: Dempsey’s new deal, the Olympic streaker returns and USA-Argentina tix updateMay 5, 2008 • By Soccer By Ives
Here are some U.S. soccer-related tidbits for you to get you through your afternoon (morning on the West Coast) funk:
Dempsey’s new deal
Fulham midfielder and U.S. national team star Clint Dempsey has signed a new deal with Fulham. That is at least one American who will be back with the Cottagers next season (I would imagine Brian McBride makes two).
Olympic Streaker poses for Playboy
Everybody’s favorite soccer streaker left many fans questioning her status as a streaker because she had clothes on when she crashed the U.S. team’s Olympic Qualifying match in March. Well, Tiffany May has taken care of that by posing for Playboy (Not quite SFW link). Maybe now Hunter Freeman can get a good look at her after averting his eyes the last time around.
USA-Argentina crowd grows
Those of you still waiting to buy your tickets to USA-Argentina at Giants Stadium might want to get to your phone or computer. The pre-sale for the match has now surpassed 40,000. That is going to be some atmosphere for that match. Speaking of upcoming USA friendlies, there is STILL no word from U.S. Soccer on ticket details for the USA-SPain friendly. Blame the Spanish Federation, which has yet to pass along the information.
