Ever seen a professional soccer player ride a bull? Now you have -  thanks to Ariat International and Professional Bull Riders

Today's Season Ticket Holder event was one for the books. Fans were asked to come out to Buck Shaw for an open practice with a little twist. 

Four professional cowboys were there to teach the guys a thing or two about bull riding and talk their upcoming Ariat Invitational on September 6-7 at Oracle Arena. In turn, the Quakes shared a few pointers as well. 

The thing we can't get over most, though?

Soccer players in cowboy boots. There really are no words.

Huckerby's most memorable moment in a Quakes jersey? He says it's beating LA Galaxy 3-2

We can't disagree with that. 

Happy GIF(t) of the Week!

2. Alan Gordon is headed to Gold Cup: Jurgen Klinsmann called in the Quakes striker to USMNT camp ahead of quarterfinals against El Salvador. 

3. Our favorite Darren Huckerby will be in the audience on Saturday to watch his two clubs battle. Will you? Catch his Q&A with SJEarthquakes.com

4. Wine and Dine with the Quakes. Yes, you heard that right. You can enjoy fine wine, delicious food and good company on July 28 at Guglielmo Winery. Click here for more details

Life is good for the U.S. Men's National team as they power through, undefeated in the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup.  Chris Wondolowski shone particularly bright last week when he bagged four goals in two matches.  The new week of the tournament has brought fresh success for newly-acquired Quake Clarence Goodson.  The defender earned flattering reviews for his performance in last night's 1-0 victory over Costa Rica.

ESPN's Jeff Carlisle gave Goodson an eight- the highest score of the players- for keeping the U.S. organized and posing a threat on set pieces. 

The New York Times named Goodson the Man of the Match and gifted him with a solid 7 rating, calling him "extremely confident and dominant defensively." 

The U.S. Men's National Team will next face El Salvador in the Quarterfinals at 1 p.m. PT on Sunday in Baltimore.

Watch the match tonight on Fox Soccer. Kickoff is at 5 p.m. PT.
