I'm all for people jumping right in and giving MLS or any other league a try. I've got some thoughts on that I'll share later. But even if you don't find a club or league that captures your attention, there will still plenty of chances to cheer on the US before the next World Cup in Russia. Here's a list of the international competitions that the US will be involved in leading up to 2018:

    1) 2015 U-20 World Cup
    2) 2015 Gold Cup
    3) 2016 Olympics
    4) 2016 Copa America Centenario
    5) 2016 World Cup qualifying first stage
    6) 2017 Confederations Cup (by virtue of winning either the 2015 Gold Cup or playoff)
    7) 2017 Gold Cup
    8) 2017 U-20 World Cup
    9) 2017 Hexagonal World Cup qualifying


    Obviously, not every one of those competitions will involve the full senior national team. But there is plenty of fun stuff in there to get the old red, white, and blue pumping through the veins. Following the USMNT year round is quite a bit of fun. Qualifying for the next World Cup will begin in 2016, and even before that you've got a Gold Cup, Olympics, and Copa America to keep things interesting.
    U-20 is obviously all Under 20 players. So Julian Green and Zelalem? I guess there will be some players that will be on the national team in 4 years.

    Gold Cup will probably be 2nd team players with some 1st teamers mixed in.

    Olympics is usually youth team, no offense but it's mostly pointless.

    Copa America is all the Americas teams (US, Mexico, Brazil, Chile, etc.). The next tournament to get into, might be Howard's last NT appearance.

    Remember the folks melting down over that Coke commercial? That commercial helped expose a lot of window lickers.

    I was just going to comment on how boring today's matches have been. But Colombia seems to have decided to make a go of it here in the last few minutes.

    I'll be surprised if Germany doesn't win it all.
