    Will always have a special place in my heart for scoring the goal [uncalled handball, cough, cough] at the first WCQ I ever went to, the USA’s 1-0 victory over Costa Rica in April of 2001 in KC. Thanks, Josh!

    I was never big fan but when he played for the Nats with Mathis ( now known as the other Clint), they had some special moments. Like the one in Giants stadium, beating Mexici I think. “Mathis to Wolf…GOAL!”
