Double the Trouble for Kicker Nick Folk

Florham Park, NJ – Excuse Nick Folk if kicking is not the only thing on his mind these days. No, next year's World Cup is not what's on the soccer enthusiast's mind. Though, if you were looking for some in-depth analysis on the United State's chances he'd be a good guy to talk to. He likes what he's seen so far if you were curious.Folk's distraction comes...
