Congrats to Gooch on a great career and I hope that he will accomplish many things in his post-playing days.

Still think his "staredown" of Mexico's Borgetti was one of the greatest moments in American soccer...definitely a sign that we weren't going to take their crap anymore.

He also got into a massive training-camp brawl with Zlatan Ibrahimovic...one of the most intimidating, skilled, HUGE - and egomaniacal - soccer players of all time. (Zlatan is also a martial-arts expert.) Actually The Zlatan is plying his trade in MLS this year with LA Galaxy, scoring ridiculous goals as only The Zlatan can do. Like this one just this past weekend:

Gooch broke his ribs in that fight...which was apparently so savage the rest of the players - most of whom were half the size of the combatants - were afraid to intervene.

Dude had himself some moments. He also tore up his knee preserving a result for the USA in 2009 against Costa Rica that put us at the top of the qualifying group for the World Cup, and was never really the same afterward.

What a great rep for the Clemson family !
He's from the same hometown ( Olney , MD ) as Dorian O'Daniel if not mistaken ... so that's a nice tidbit .
