Jermaine Jones, thanks to his reckless style, will never be the most beloved player to ever put on the U.S. National Team shirt.
Even the most ardent anti-Jones folks have to wince watching him taking a ball kicked by Chelsea’s Brazilian maestro Oscar square in the face during today’s Champions League match in Gelsenkirchen, Germany.
Adding insult to injury, Schalke trails Chelsea 2-0 on a pair of goals by Fernando Torres. Jones, as you might guess, picked up a yellow card in the first half.
If only Jones still had the ‘sno fro’ … the ball would have deflected off its sheer awesomeness.
