I heard a rumor about this a couple of days ago, but no one would answer my emails. Well, here it is.
The Bulls press release, the Team USA article, and the roster.
What I know about the World Cup could be put into a teaspoon, so if anyone out there has some good links that gives some background, please send them on.
In the meantime, the roster looks like there’s some solid AAA talent on it. Players from LeHigh Valley, Memphis, Charlotte, Fresno, Omaha, Indianapolis, Rochester, Gwinnett, and Oklahoma City. Assuming that this is Olympic-caliber play, the Cup should be quite a challenge to Jon and Jason. And a feather in their caps if the team does well.
Guess I’m going to have to learn a lot more about the World Cup before I can comment on the Cup itself. Also no hint on when they would be leaving the Bulls, but practice starts on September 2nd.
Boy I sure hate to see Jon and Jason go. It has been so much fun watching them this year. Maybe we’ll see them this weekend. I hope so.
