Pulisic on 60 Minutes, Michael Bradley conspiracy?

It's a quiet night here at my parents' house where I've come to spend Sunday night and get a good night's rest before starting this week. Tomorrow is Monday, which means all that needs to happen is for the week to fly by so it can be Friday and we can watch the USMNT take on Panama in Orlando. And of course, so we can watch Christian Pulisic.

I'm not getting my hopes up anymore with the USMNT. They played like absolute garbage in the last two games, and there's no reason to think the game on Friday will be any different. I will be getting my hopes up with CP though, since he's a bright spot even when everything else looks pretty grim.

I might as well just let you all know now: I think there's some kind of conspiracy going on with Michael Bradley, his dad Bob Bradley, and US soccer. Bradley is a horrible, horrible, horrible soccer player. Ninety-eight percent (rough estimate) of his passes are back passes. He gives away the ball constantly. He's the most timid, un-attack minded midfielder I've ever seen. I've never seen anyone look less confident with the ball, or less like they want the ball, which is alarming considering he plays center mid and is the team captain. How do other people not see this? How does Bruce Arena not see this? I DON'T UNDERSTAND IT. And then Jurgen Klinsmann got fired, partly because the team wasn't playing that well and partly, apparently, because he talked bad about Michael and Bob Bradley. Are we living in a dictatorial regime where dissenters get axed? Apparently so.

Anyway.

It was rad to see Christian Pulisic on 60 Minutes tonight. Got a better appreciation of what it must be like to play in front of so many insane fans.

Can I make this Dortmund move happen? I was looking at Air Bnb's and language schools today.

That's all for now. I'm tired. Tomorrow I have to get my own blood with a radioactive marker infused into it transfused into me, all in the name of the almighty dollar so I can possibly move to Europe.

Bis spater.

Christian Pulisic and Gordon Lightfoot and Revierderby Woes

Hey Pulisic fans,

Man, what a rough stretch it's been. First this happened:
New post (Christian Pulisic scratched from Dortmund squad with muscle injury) has been published on Fifa World Cup - https://t.co/ClVnwexzE9pic.twitter.com/pA8n70KV3S — FIFA Events (@FIFA_Events) November 25, 2017 Then, Pulisic missed the next game against Tottenham, a game that didn't really matter as far as standings went but was huge for team morale. And guess what, CHA BOI (me) WAS AT THAT GAME!

Yes, Pulisic fans, I actually went to a game. In Dortmund. I actually went to the city of Dortmund, and I actually had a ticket to the Borussia Dortmund vs. Tottenham game, and I actually went to the stadium, and I actually sat in a seat, and my eyes actually took in the game and the Yellow Wall and the fanfare and all of it.

But, of course, Dortmund lost. And Pulisic didn't play.



Luckily Pulisic was back for the Revierderby against Schalke, as evidenced here:

Leverkusen vs. Dortmund Preview: Pulisic is Due

Tomorrow is the day Dortmund are finally going to turn it all around. Why? Because Peter Bosz is basically going to get sacked no matter what, because nobody expects anything from Dortmund anymore, because people expect the world out of Bayer Leverkusen given their record at home, and for a number of other reasons. And I might as well give you those reasons: Gotze is out injured, Aubameyang is going to miss the game with a red card, Marc Bartra apparently doesn't know how to play defense, and Dortmund has played horrible second halves lately while Bayer have played incredible second halves. I think that's about it.

All of this has coincided with what one article called a "curse" for Pulisic that's existed since the US failed to qualify for the World Cup. I have just one thing to say about that: Fuck the World Cup. For now. The US was such a bad team, with so many underperforming players, that it was awful to watch them and they didn't deserve to go to the Wo…

Dortmund vs. Hannover preview, Should Pulisic replace Angela Merkel as chancellor of Germany?

Hello Pulisic Fans,

And welcome to the Straight Outta Hershey official preview for the Bundesliga Matchday 10 game between Hannover 96 and Borussia Dortmund. Today's preview will focus heavily on three things: 1) What will happen in the game, 2) What will happen with Christian Pulisic, and 3) Am I moving to Germany?

But first, let's start with a GIF: It's been a quiet half for Christian Pulisic so far, but here is a gif of him faking out 2 #SGE players. #BVB#SGEBVBpic.twitter.com/uMuvGpL5I5 — GolazoJuice (@GolazoJuice) October 21, 2017 I'll give you a moment to collect your jaws off the floor or get the urine out of your boxers or whatever it is you need to do, and then we'll move forward.

....

Good. What's so special about this GIF? The fact that it's really not that special. Pulisic does this kind of stuff all the time. And I love to use italics because they make things so much more dramatic.

But let's get away from Pulisic for just a moment and talk…
