Podcasts with Michael Bradley and Sacha Kljestan

For your perusal, we're presenting a pair of podcasts:

First, caught up with Michael Bradley ahead of the U.S.' game against the Netherlands on Sunday. Bradley has a unique perspective on the Dutch team, having played in Holland for the past couple of seasons. The U.S. midfielder also touched on the great experience of the Olympics and be sure to listen for a brief cameo by Brad Guzan.

I might have been very critical of this team the past few weeks on certain prominent message boards, but believe me, it's only because of my desire to see you all excel. I...we-the die-hard supporters-know what is possible with this team. But lately, the chemistry just hasn't worked out to potential. It may be because of scheduling difficulties, the shortsightedness of the Fed or the coaches, whatever--IT DOESN'T MATTER!

We know--and you know--what this team is capable of: this is a team that backs down to NO ONE. This is a team that plays with its heart on its sleeve. This team knows it has a lot to learn; but, now is not the time for second guessing. Now is the time to give it your all. To hell with 'what ifs' and 'what was...' Today is a new day. Today is THE day. Today, we will learn what this team is made of.

This is the Olympics. Games here are not won by skill alone, but by heart and determination. It doesn't matter what the score is at the end of the day, but as long as you all play with the tenacity you know you can play with, there will be no regrets in the end.
