“Culling the thoughts that occur when you’re standing around waiting for something to happen”
You think you’re an all-star every Thanksgiving when the family plays touch football on the front yard?
Try winning Turkey Day MVP honors in the Findley household.
Robbie Findley could use a big plate of comfort food after suffering what has to be one of the more devastating losses of his career on Saturday — much worse than losing out on the honor of licking the wooden, mash-potato-serving spoon.
The Shadow Mountain (Phoenix) High School grad was the starting forward for Team USA in Saturday’s World Cup, 2-1, loss to Ghana.
The former Oregon State Beaver returned to the lineup after sitting out the Algeria game (bummer) due to two yellow cards.
Findley is cousins with former University of Arizona star and current Atlanta Hawk Mike Bibby as well as with former Pittsburgh Steeler and Detroit Lion wide receiver Shaun McDonald.
He’s also related, through marriage, to New York Knicks’ guard Eddie House.
