|Tonight on TDS, Bob Bradley, manager of Egypt's national soccer team & and subject of the documentary American Pharaoh: Bob Bradley & the Egyptian Soccer Team;
and on TCR, both Detroit Free Press Editor Stephen Henderson and former Maine Senator Olympia Snowe, whose book is called Fighting for Common Ground: How We Can Fix the Stalemate in Congress).
|Not sure whether this is a better interview for Jon or John. Here's what the TDS site put up:
Bob Bradley is the manager of the Egypt's national soccer team. He served as the head coach of the U.S. men's national team from 2006 until 2011. Bradley began his coaching career at just 22, when he was named head coach of Ohio University. He went on to work as an assistant at UVA before returning to coach Princeton, where he played soccer in college. Bradley has coached several Major League Soccer teams, including the Chicago Fire, MetroStars and Chivas USA. His son Michael Bradley is one of the top American players in the game today.A post at orangejuiceblog has a bit more:
Bob Bradley was the coach of Chivas, and then became the US National Team’s coach. He led the team to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. The USA won its group, for the first time since 1930, but did not advance to the quarter-finals. Bradley was replaced by Huntington Beach resident Jurgen Klinsmann, a successful former German player and coach. Bradley is currently coaching Egypt’s soccer team. This team is on the verge of classifying for the 2014 World Cup, which is making Bradley a very popular person. He has won the respect of Egyptians not only because of his coaching success, but also of because of his determination to stay and coach in a country in which soccer has deep political volatile overtones.There's a 13 minute trailer out for the documentary American Pharaoh: Bob Bradley & the Egyptian Soccer Team(one of two films on the topic, it seems). Apparently it's well-regarded, but I couldn't make it past about 16 seconds (Take a look, you'll see why). Looks pretty, though.
Plenty of other stuff out there. Some links:

But there's also this, which should be worth the time.
