Tuesday Freedom Kicks: Becky Sauerbrunn 4 eva

Free agent Justin Mapp for Sporting Kansas City.

You guys, I was at trivia last night and they asked what the name of the high school mascot in One Tree Hill was, and I was the only person on our team who watched that show—loved it, even—and I could not remember. And I feel a great shame. I did, however, triumphantly write down the answer to the "Who won the 2014 World Cup?" question, though admittedly everyone knew that.

Trivia is the best/worst.

Anyway, soccer!

I love Justin Mapp. I love that he looks like he would be a random "hey, it's that guy!" actor on an episode of Law and Order: SVU, in which he would play the initial suspect who obviously didn't do it.
