Some soccer news to get you going today:

Bob Bradley calls 30 in to the USMNT training camp in January. The team consists largely of MLS and Scandinavian league players whose seasons have ended.

Meanwhile, the Wizards want to build a stadium in Kansas. Let’s see if clicking your shoes together will make that stadium happen. This saga has gone on so long that, before Philadelphia Union existed, the Wizards briefly considered moving to south Jersey so they could get a stadium and a bigger market. (Meanwhile, St. Louis has support for a stadium, a history, and a club. But another day for that one.)

Landon Donovan and Hope Solo named USSF men’s and women’s players of the year.
