Steve Birnbaum is a hard man in pre-Chile game photo


Thoughts on this picture: * Steve Birnbaum looks hard. It's difficult to out-do Michael Bradley in the "don't eff with me" face department, but the rookie second-year pro comes pretty close. * If Nike is going to insist on putting the US in a glorified polo shirt, at least those red socks are money. * Mix Diskerud and Jozy Altidore must have shared a joke just before the shot - something is certainly amusing both of them. * In the biopic of his life, Brek Shea will be portrayed by Keanu Reeves.
