Awesome! imo USA has been the biggest threat to Brazil for quite some time now and the matches are always good. They could've easily won gold in Rio had they not choked against Italy.
Only two days this year though? I remember 2015 had 4 games played.

By the way...
"The U.S. Men were the only team to beat Brazil at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro."
Wrong, Italy did too. But we all know how that turned out... :whistle:
Gold - European Championship 2013 (M) Prediction Game
Bronze - World Championship 2014 (W) Prediction Game

To be honest, I would rather they play another team because they invited brazil for the USAV cup in 2015 already and yes I remember they played 4 games. I guess Speraw wants to play against one of the opponents in the Grand Champions Cup.
Last year they invited Japan and they only played 2 matches.

Yeah, it makes sense. i guess they just want the challenge of playing against the olympic champions, heh.
I wouldn't be sad if they'd invited either France or Italy too.

World league roster... I guess this is not the final roster yet, still have to wait for the USA Volleyball official roster.

No Anderson, Russell, Lee, Priddy, Troy, Holt

I would be surprised if this is the final roster...

US needs new middle blockers and I believe an opposite as well. Matt is 30 now and Murphy hasn't exactly shown qualities to be a starter.

Baby Aaron got injured so he's not on the roster. I'm assuming he'll be back since no one took #2 from the team. Or maybe no since f*** he's getting married. :mad:

Anderson is not injured or newly married, why isn't he on the roster then?! ?( 8|
