I don't know how anyone who follows US Soccer could be anything but.

A 3-0 loss to the Czech Republic has everyone thinking back to a dark day of American soccer: 1998.

Maybe one or two guys played well. Landon Donovan...where were you? Looked so promising until you took that hard foul in the first half. Did you think the match was over after that?

And poor Oguchi Onyewu. He played like an inexperienced kid who was scared to death, and he was beaten for all three Czech goals.

More tomorrow. Time for the "reset" button if you're Bruce Arena. Whatever you tried today...well, it failed. Miserably.

Good luck picking up the pieces, because the bandwagon just got a lot lighter in the States.
