As we say goodbye to July, we welcome back to the show Rob Stone of Fox Sports. Rob is the studio host for Fox Soccer and will also have a role on Fox's college football coverage this fall. Today, Rob chats with AA about the USA's victory in the Gold Cup and the imminent launch of Fox Sports 1. Topics include... -The USMNT's record winning streak and how excited fans should truly be. -How expectations have changed for the USMNT and goals at next year's World Cup. -Gus Johnson joining Fox's soccer coverage and the reaction to it. -The death of Fox Soccer and launch of Fox Sports 1. -His various roles at the new network. -The increased battle for parking and which FS1 newbie will have the biggest impact. -Rob's thoughts on FS1 climbing the mountain and challenging ESPN - "hell yea we're coming after them." We also discussed how close Rob came to calling the PBA once again and there may even be a hambone shoutout as well.   In case you've missed any of our podcasts, check out all of our interviews on iTunes or our AA Podcast RSS Page.   For more from Rob, follow him on Twitter @RobStoneONFox.
