Kasey Keller and his castle get the USA Today treatment

Ahead of Saturday's major match against Mexico, USA Today tells the story of America's number one goalkeeper Kasey Keller. Without ruining it for you, it turns out Keller and family live in a small castle in Germany.

Besides that, the article also gives a quick overview of Keller's international career including the bench warming of 2002 and his 'clear-the-air' conversation with US coach Bruce Arena. Oh how I would have loved to hear that exchange.

Kasey doesn't talk about what was discussed, but Arena must have said something right because Keller decided not to retire and has been on a roll ever since. Keller comes into Saturday's match with a 417-minute shutout streak and looking for his 50th win with the US team. He must also feel confident in his position when Arena says things like, "he'd have to fall out of a window" to lose the starting job.
