Inside: U.S. Soccer’s March to Brazil
Tuesday night, Sharon, Jack and I watched the last episode of Inside: U.S. Soccer's March to Brazil. Over the last month, I have watched all six episodes. I have enjoyed the series. I have particularly enjoyed the segments that provided back stories for a number of the players. At least now, I have some some passing familiarity with the team as it plays in the World Cup over the next couple of weeks.
