(I posted this over the weekend, but wanted to give our regular readers who may have missed it a chance to chime in.)
With Brian McBride announcing his retirement from professional soccer at the end of the current MLS season there has been an outpouring of emotion from grateful U.S. national team fans who remember him for all his contributions to the game.
This had me wondering just who most people would consider their favorite U.S. national team player ever. Is it McBride? How about Landon Donovan? Do people still have love for Tab Ramos or John Harkes? How about Clint Mathis?
It's time for a poll. Who is your favorite U.S. men's national team player of all time? Remember, this isn't a poll asking who the best USA player ever was, it's who you personally considered your favorite.
Cast your vote after the jump (and apologies to the old-timers, but for the purposes of the poll we're listing players from the modern era, 1990 to present day. Feel free to include write-in ballots):
