Taylor (red shirt) and Daryl (white shirt) worked the beer truck at the USA vs Portugal RVA watch party on Sunday. It as the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the busiest of times. Man in the middle, in the blue shirt, is Grant, aka Lord Grantham, the TSS 11-a-side team midfielder who did a heroic double-shift to help lubricate the public soccer viewing in downtown Richmond.
Final crowd has been estimated at 5,000-ish, which makes the event an official success. Two thumbs up for the Richmond Kickers, SportsBackers, Venture Richmond and, last but certainly not least, the American Outlaws — Richmond Chapter for putting the event together.
Daryl and Taylor review the USA’s 2-2 tie with Portugal, which was mere seconds from being the USA’s 2-1 win over Portugal. We explain why we aren’t blaming Michael Bradley for that final goal, what we think Geoff Cameron was doing on the first goal, and why Jermaine Jones is a patriotic prince.
Daryl and Taylor go DEEP into Sunday’s USA vs Portugal game, reading every smart take they could find, internalizing that knowledge, adding their own twist, then presenting it to you. What is Portugals’ likely line-up and approach. Where are their strengths and weaknesses. Are we better off if Cristiano Ronaldo starts or doesn’t start in this game. Who replaces Jozy Altidore. Listen to hear the answers to all that and more.
