The Full Video Of Taylor Twellman's Rant Will Make You So Mad You Could Spit
Full of naive hope for the ’06 World Cup, the USMNT was promptly annihilated by the man dubbed “the little Mozart.”Read More
Normally I do not care much for Taylor Twellman as a broadcaster. He sounds like he's arguing with a vaery angry invisible person all the time. However, I would be remiss if I didn't mention that I also think Twellman does good things. His work in concussion prevention is admirable. And then there was the rant Twellman went on after the USA's elimination from World Cup qualification.
I have never seen anyone that angry be that articulate at the same time, so kudos to Taylor Twellman. He said it better than I could have.

The "Belgium played Bosnia on a cow pasture" line illustrates his basic point perfectly: there is no excuse for what happened this World Cup qualification cycle. The USMNT was a trainwreck long before they went to Trinidad & Tobago, and there were many opportunities to get back on track along the way. Instead, the USA put themselves in a position, on the last day of the hex, in which there was a doomsday scenario that knocked the USA out of qualifying.
That doomsday scenario happened, and now we are left with a large pile of rubble with a USA crest on the front. I'll say it again for the people in the back: Taylor Twellman is absolutely right, and there is no possible explanation for the USA missing the World Cup that could ever be considered satisfactory.
