Thanks, Brad

As the US prepares to take on Trinidad & Tobago in the first game of the final round of CONCACAF World Cup qualifying tomorrow afternoon (set your VCRs/TIVOs), goalkeeper Brad Friedel announced his retirement from international play. Brad, who played in the Olympics and three World Cups for the US, wants to focus on his club career with Blackburn and spend any down time with his family and fledgling business interests. In addition to his US exploits, Brad was named best keeper in the English Premier League in 2002-2003. Thankfully, the US is deep at keeper - and now I'm one spot closer to getting into the squad before Germany 06. :)

Thanks, Brad.
