Why Freddy Will Not Play for Ghana

There are so many reasons, but let's take the most cynical one that I come up with off the top of my head: Money. Freddy is viewed as the great US Soccer hope. Accordingly, Freddy gets mad bank from firms who want his endorsement for the US market. Now, suppose Freddy decides to play for Ghana, what do you think happens to all that endoresment money?
Now, there are dozens of more noble reasons for Freddy not to join Ghana in Germany, and he may even choose not to play for Ghana based on those reasons. But if you believe the worst about Freddy (and I, for one, don't) , if you really believe that he's a player who's in it for himself first and everyone else second... well, the move doesn't even make sense then.
So let's stop with the Freddy to Ghana stuff unless he indicates any sort of willingness to change sides. Which he hasn't.

I think it's pretty cool that Ghana is coming after him to play for the Black Stars.

I dunno why, I just think it's cool. Something else to spice things up in the offseason and something else for us to talk about.

And I agree, he's not going anywhere.

I don't think anyone who reads this blog gave that story a second thought.
