New Feature - Hejduk Watch: Week of July 5th, 2010

(Editor's Note: We've laid pretty low on this for a while, but we're re-doubling our efforts to recruit Columbus Crew defender and "former" USMNTer Frankie Hejduk as the spokesperson for the Free Beer Movement. Why, you ask? Read our post, "The Case for Frankie Hejduk" and there will be no doubt in our mind that Frankie "Hair-cut" is the right man for the job.

How do we attract Mr. Hejduk to such a high-profile job? Well... we had a guy sitting outside his house, but the cops keep on picking him up for trespassing. So instead we're going to digitally stalk him and follow his heroics week-in-and-week-out.)

This was a bad week for our cult hero and Free Beer Movement spokesperson hopeful, Frankie Hejduk. The Crew can rejoice in their 2-1 win over their Eastern Conference rivals, the Chicago Fire, but ol' Frankie was on the wrong end of the Fire's sole goal in the contest.

Our Frankie Rating: out of surfboards

While we usually wear our rose-colored glasses when it comes to Frankie an own-goal is tough to stomach. We're comforted that it didn't cost his side three points, but Hejduk has gotta stay sharp if he wants that call up back to the National Team.

United States Soccer National Team Status:

Included in the 40-man player pool for the USMNT. Did not feature in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. As of press time, no phone calls from Coach Bob Bradley.
