A rundown of stuff on the intertubes

U.S. to play Denmark.
This is a perfect friendly and exactly the type of team we may meet in South Africa.

MLS indoors? I have no idea what Garber is talking about, but WV Hooligan has a smart take on Garber’s talk of playing indoors – he is just trying to get Blatter off his back. Give us the World Cup already!

Beckham will be loaned – but will return.
David Beckham is going to finish his career with LA – he always was. Where else can he play 3 more years? He just wants to make the World Cup first. Next year will be the same situation as this year. But if he doesn’t make the England squad – his chances are pretty iffy – he will definitely return to LA with his tail between his legs.

Mo Edu status. The Herald Scotland runs a piece saying Maurice Edu’s return will be like a new signing for Rangers. Steve Nicol is quoted a whole bunch.

US-Honduras tv rights.
Greg Seltzer – warns that he is going to take a look into how much a WC qualifier nets from ESPN after seeing that Honduras got only 500k. My take is that the USSF needs to start playing hardball with the other federations. If they are going to screw us in who they sell the game to, we should screw them back when we sell the rights. US Soccer missed a huge opportunity to hype the sport on Saturday night – although I will say ESPN did impress me. They ESPN scroll provided constant updates and they broke in to repeatedly show mid-game highlights.

Warm reception for US in Honduras.
Jere Longman of the NY Times notes how gracious the Honduran fans were toward the US. Maybe not for a certain bald reporter.
