The last pieces of news regarding the World Cup: Jozy Altidore, the US Striker (goal-scorer) retained a hamstring injury; we don't know anything about that yet. Clint Dempsey, another striker and the US captain was kicked in the face, but played the rest of the game. Matt Besler, a US defender, appeared to be injured also, and was replaced. There is no further news on that either.
On to the hockey.
Hockey is over for now, but that does not mean the news is slowing down. There's plenty here to mull over, so grab a listen to this (possibly new) experience, and enjoy the Walk.
