Where is Fox Sports 1 after one month?
Awful Announcing - over 3 years
Today marks the one month anniversary of America's newest 24/7 cable sports network - Fox Sports 1.  It was August 17th when Speed Channel went off the air and was replaced by the all sports network.  FS1 is just beginning its nascent journey in the sports world, but it's worth examining the network's first impression on viewers.  Fox Sports 1 is the most hyped cable sports network to launch as a prospective challenger to ESPN.  So far there have been some positives, some early struggles, and the realization of that challenge being much more difficult than the folks in Los Angeles had hoped. Here's a quick look at Fox Sports 1 after one month... Fox Sports Live FS1's flagship show is working hard to distinguish itself from SportsCenter.  The anchors Jay Onrait and Dan O'Toole are different.  The ex-athlete panel is different.  The Big Board is different.  Even the highlights and conversation topics are somewhat different (a little more EPL and hockey here, ...

U.S. Rallies To Advance In World Cup Qualifying
Huffington Post - over 4 years
KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Clint Dempsey is precisely the kind of scrappy player that Jurgen Klinsmann covets on his teams, an attacker who is willing to throw his body around for the greater good. On Tuesday night, the rest of the United States team played just like him. Dempsey had a pair of goals and assisted on Carlos Bocanegra's equalizer, and the U.S. finally showed some of the gritty, proactive style Klinsmann has been preaching to rally past Guatemala 3-1 and reach next year's final round of World Cup qualifying. "They understood the moment," said Klinsmann, who has eschewed the defensive style embraced by former U.S. coach Bob Bradley for one predicated on always moving forward. "We expected a very difficult qualifying campaign, and that's what this is," Klinsmann said. "We made clear we're the number one team in this group and the next round will be harder." Facing their first elimination game in qualifying since 2000 and only second in 23 years, the A ...

WATCH: Extra-Time Goal Saves U.S. Soccer
Huffington Post Sports - over 4 years
ST. JOHN'S, Antigua — Eddie Johnson rewarded his coach's faith in him – twice. In his first game back with the U.S. national team, Johnson scored twice Friday night, including the winning goal in second-half injury time, lifting the United States to the verge of advancing in World Cup qualifying with a nervous 2-1 victory over Antigua and Barbuda. If the Americans beat Guatemala on Tuesday night in Kansas City, Kan., they will move into the final round of CONCACAF qualifying for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. The U.S. has 10 points; Guatemala and Jamaica each have seven and were playing each other in a late game in Guatemala. Johnson connected on headers in the 20th minute and then in the dying moments in his first game for the U.S. team in two years. He was added to the squad by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, ostensibly replacing the disappointing Jozy Altidore, and the move paid off. "It's good to be back in the mix," Johnson said. "Going into this game the coach ...

Nurse guilty of having affair with rapist in Wakefield Jail
Yorkshire Evening Post - over 4 years
A PRISON nurse was today found guilty of having an affair with a convicted rapist at Wakefield Jail. Karen Cosford, 47, had sex with inmate Brian McBride, who was serving a life sentence at the prison, one of Britain’s highest security establishments. She sent the prisoner intimate text messages on a smuggled mobile phone and even wrote him a love letter which was found hidden in a jar of sugar. Cosford performed a sex act on McBride while she was on duty as two colleagues - Carolyn Falloon and Jacqueline Flynn - guarded his cell, the jury heard. On another occasion, Falloon caught her having sex with the inmate in the medical unit, but failed to report it. Cosford, of Normanton, West Yorkshire, who worked in the jail’s medical centre, denied misconduct, claiming McBride raped her then bribed and intimidated her so she would not report it. During a trial at Leeds Crown Court that lasted almost four weeks, she said he threatened to kill her and her family if she told anybody abou ...

Yorkshire Evening Post - over 4 years
A prison nurse told police a convicted rapist tried to have sex with her in his cell then told her he had filmed it on a hidden camera in a bid to blackmail her.

Leeds Crown Court heard transcripts of a police interview in which Cosford said McBride had blackmailed her into pretending to be in a relationship with him. She told officers that he had threatened her and had people on the outside that could harm her and her family including her young son. In interview Cosford said: “I had no choice in the matter. The man was in essence blackmailing me. I felt like my life was at risk, my son’s life was at risk. “He convinced me that these people would have access to shotguns. My life was at risk.” Cosford, of Normanton, near Wakefield, is ...

"I took a step in at the far post and lost my marker. He delivered a beautiful cross and I knocked it home."
  • 2000
    Age 27
    While playing for Columbus in the MLS, McBride spent two loan periods in England. The first came in 2000 when McBride played for Preston North End, then managed by David Moyes.
    More Details Hide Details While McBride played well for the club, he sat out several games after having a blood clot surgically removed from his arm, which consisted of having a rib removed. The clot came as a result of a hard collision McBride had suffered during his first game with Preston. As McBride's loan spell came to an end, Preston attempted to purchase his contract from MLS for $1.8 million. MLS rejected it, considering McBride to be worth twice that amount. Two years later, Premier League club Everton were beginning to slide down the table. David Moyes, by then with Everton, remembered McBride's success with Preston and sought the forward's services. During McBride's three months with the club, he did not disappoint Moyes, scoring four goals in eight games, including his first game with the club, a 4–3 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur. He made close friends during the short time with players such as Leon Osman (with whom he still plays football) and Richard Wright. Everton, unlike Preston, merely sought to extend McBride's loan period, but MLS rejected it, preferring a transfer over an extended loan for McBride.
  • 1996
    Age 23
    McBride returned to America in 1996 for the inaugural season of Major League Soccer, for whom he was the first overall pick of the MLS Inaugural Draft.

In 2005, he was named to the MLS All-Time Best XI. In 2011, the Crew honored McBride by naming him the inaugural member of its Circle of Honor.
  • 1994
    Age 21
    In 1994, McBride left the United States to ply his trade in Germany.
    More Details Hide Details At the time, VfL Wolfsburg played in the German Second Division and provided several aspiring American players an opportunity to play football in Europe. These included Chad Deering, Claudio Reyna and Mike Lapper, as well as McBride. McBride struggled to find playing time with the club and also had difficulty scoring. However, one of his two goals came in an 2–1 victory over Bayern Munich's reserve ream in the DFB-Pokal quarterfinals – Wolfsburg would go on to reach the final, although McBride did not feature. At the end of the season, McBride gained a release from Wolfsburg and when MLS was created, chose to return to play in the United States.
  • 1993
    Age 20
    He made his national team debut in 1993, though he was not a member of the squad for the 1994 FIFA World Cup.
    More Details Hide Details He is the first-ever spokesperson for the Central Ohio Diabetes Association and donated $100 to the association for every goal and assist he tallied for the U.S. National Team. He was part of the U.S. team that played at the 1998, 2002, and 2006 FIFA World Cups. He scored at the 1998 and 2002 tournaments and in doing so, became the first American player to score at two World Cups. Clint Dempsey and Landon Donovan have since equaled this feat. McBride is fourth behind Bert Patenaude, Dempsey and Donovan for the most World Cup goals for an American with three. On May 2, 2006, McBride was named to the U.S. roster for his third consecutive World Cup.
  • TEENAGE
  • 1992
    Age 19

    More Details Hide Details He also was named Most Valuable Player of the Great Midwest Conference three years straight, as well as being named to the All-Conference first-team during this stretch. He trained at the world famous Magna Fitness Center. After being such a versatile player in his amateur career, McBride decided to become a striker at the professional level. Craig Burley warned McBride that he should expect to get clattered playing that position. McBride briefly played for the minor league Milwaukee Rampage. In 18 games, he scored 17 goals and assisted another 18. That year also saw Tony Sanneh playing with the Rampage. Both Sanneh and McBride would play professionally in Germany, in MLS and on the U.S. men's national team.
  • 1988
    Age 15
    Born in Arlington Heights, Illinois, McBride played varsity soccer at Buffalo Grove High School, under coach John Erfort, where he led the Bison to the Illinois state championship in 1988, his junior year.
