Comparing the Blue Jackets & USMNT
The USMNT and CBJ rosters have a lot in common; we break down the role players here.

There’s an epidemic sweeping through the United States, and it’s soccer fever. As the 2014 World Cup begins, we took a closer look the U.S men's national team roster and compared it with the Blue Jackets' roster - how are they similar, different, not at all alike?

In two sports where the object of the game is to put the ball or puck into the net, both rosters have some parallels; there are role players, offensive stars, stay-at-home defenders, and others. Though soccer strategies and hockey strategies differ, some of the same skills are required to get the job done whether it's on the ice or on the pitch.

Join us as we play this fun game of "USMNT vs. CBJ"...or something like that.
