    Good for Vic, he should play the “Bruntlett” role for Team USA.

    Great news… as long as he doesn’t get injured! It will be good to watch him on TV… I’m predicting a USA vs. Dominican Republic final

    It is kind of a shame that he wont be able to play with the team and build that chemistry that works so well
