Outraged by the USBF
Oren, "The potential sponsor hypothetical strikes me as quite weak." I don't think so. A logical path for a future sponsor would be to come and see her / his potential future team play in a tough competition. That would include observing how the players interact with others during the ...

Great sportsmanship at the senior trials
