You surely have seen it by now. Clint Dempsey's hilarious face aimed at Jamaica's Ryan Johnson as the two exchanged words during the U.S. team's 1-0 victory on Tuesday.

Dempsey didn't take too kindly to Johnson's attempt at talking tough and responded with a face that was equal parts crazy and funny.

In case you haven't seen it, or just want to watch it again, here it is:

That face needs a name and it's up to SBI readers to come up with the perfect name. The Gas Face? The Nacogdoches Face? The Don't Mess With Texas Face?

    Second this, it’s painfully obvious, but given where you’d see that face in the context of real life, it has to be the “Dropping a Deuce” face, or “Deuceface” for short.
