If The U.S.A. Wants To Win The World Cup, They're Gonna Need An Underdog Training Montage! The States Are NOT Favored To Go Far!

united states low odds winning world cup

Yeesh! This sounds grim!

We knew that the U.S. Men’s National Team was already projected to have a tough time in the FIFA World Cup, but these odds just aren’t good at all!

Now that we know who is on the teams (sorry Landon Donovan!), the Oddsmakers have been able to come up with the numbers for whether or not the U.S. will take it all, and it’s 100/1. On the bright side, our neighbor to the south, Mexico, is

Robbie Rogers Makes History As The First Openly Gay Active Male Athlete In The US!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayInspirationSoccer

robbie rogers first active openly gay us athlete

When Jason Collins came out as the first gay athlete in US men's team sports, we knew it wouldn’t be long until others followed his courageous lead.

We were right!

During the LA Galaxy soccer game on Sunday, Robbie Rogers returned to the field, making him the first active male athlete in US professional team sports to be openly gay!!!

Rogers walked away from the game he loves in February and this was his first return as an openly gay man.

How brave!

Collins is still a free agent and looking for a team, which is why Rogers has made history as the first active player.

Like the true professional he is, after the match, Rogers said:

"I guess this is a historic thing, but for me it was just a soccer game.”

As usual, teammate Landon Donovan was extremely supportive, saying:

"Because of the nature of the way sports has been for so many years — the macho culture that's been embraced by everybody — it's of interest to everybody. Now, hopefully, the hype about it is over and he can get back to being a soccer player, which is what he wants to do."

We’re thrilled that the tides are turning in US sports and that people are feeling confident enough to be who they really are!!!

Eva Longoria Joins The Beckhams At L.A. Galaxy Playoff

Eva Longoria watches playoffs with the Beckhams

Go, Galaxy, go!

Eva Longoria joined her friend Victoria Beckham and her kids Thursday night to cheer on David Beckham as the L.A. Galaxy took on the New York Red Bulls in a semi-final playoff match.

Thanks, in part to a corner kick from Beckham in the first half and a penalty goal from Landon Donovan in the second, the Galaxy went on to win.

While David was busy kicking butt on the field, Eva and Victoria kept themselves busy by taking turns holding Harper Seven, who looked completely at ease in Eva's arms.

That little girl is getting cuter everyday!

Check out more pics of the whole Beckham gang below and don't forget to watch the Los Angeles Galaxy take on Real Salt Lake during Sunday's Western Conference final!

After tearing his Achilles' tendon and being out for six months, David Beckham has returned…and he's returned strong!

Beckham and his team, the L.A. Galaxy, defeated D.C. United 2-1 at the Carson, CA Home Depot Center on Saturday.

David received major support in the game from Landon Donovan, who scored two goals towards the end of the match, which led the Galaxy to victory.

Welcome back, David! We're glad to see you've returned to the game strong, bb!

Not A Baby Daddy!

Phew!

U.S. soccer player Landon Donovan said on the ESPY Awards red carpet that he does not have a love child with a British woman while he was on loan to English Premier League club Everton earlier this year.

"I actually wasn't sure I was going to be asked but I know now that I will not be a dad any time soon, which is good news for me," Landon said.

His wife Bianca Kajlich must be relieved, too — even if they are separated!
