Kind of an odd links day. Not many non-football links to share below ... and not quite a full day's worth of practice links, either, since afternoon practice was canceled. So instead, you basically get two half-full posts. BUT WHO CARES BECAUSE THE USMNT WON IN MEXICO LAST NIGHT...

Mizzou Basketball Links

The MUtigers.com releases during this tour are great. Half-basketball, half-tour guide.

    The team arrived shortly after 3 p.m. and had a chance to check into the hotel before spending three to four hours touring the area. Many on the travel party headed immediately to Avenue des Champs-Élysées for some window shopping and sightseeing.

    The avenue is most easily described as France's version of Rodeo Drive with high-end shops such as Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Lacoste and much, much more. Of course one of the more popular sites was the Nike Store, which was loaded with Olympic Games merchandise, including plenty of gear for the fans of Team USA.

    The team is staying at the Concorde Opera Paris, which has a convenient location to many shops and restaurants. Just down the road are the Arc De Triomphe Etoile, the Louvre, the Madeleine and the de la Concorde. The team has a night tour scheduled Thursday evening, which should give us a quick history lesson on these incredible structures and fountains.

    Also in our hotel is the Duke women's basketball team, who is touring Europe. We also saw Virginia out and about today. The Cavaliers are finishing up their European tour and also had stops in the Netherlands and Belgium before France.

If last night's U.S. goal were an 80-yard touchdown drive, Brek Shea broke off a 65-yard run to the Mexico 5, and two plays later, Michael Orozco plunged in from the 1. And then linebacker Tim Howard single-handedly stuffed a ball-carrier twice on a late goalline stand. (And then Mexico fans poured beer on Ian Darke and THIS WILL NOT BE TAKEN LIGHTLY.)
