Hope we can qualify for the quarterfinals!
;)

Not inviting any quality teams from other regions makes this field look pretty weak, especially since 8 out of 12 teams advance to the knockout stages.

HOORAY! USA finally has a home game (T&T).

Get the Nationals out of RFK and we'll see the US MNT return---hopefully for the 2nd round of qualifiers in 08/09---and we'll see DC United vs Real Madrid/Barca/Chelsea at our real home.

The Gold Cup seems like such a waste of time. Concentrate on Copa America!!!!!!!!!

In the past, didn't we invite good teams to this?

Unbelievable. We can't avoid the only other World Cup team. Guatemala has given us fits in the past as well. At least with 8 teams going through, you know we won't finish last in this group, but we could be up against Mexico or CR in the next round.

Thx,

Jay!

Since we won't be bringing the same team to both the Gold Cup and Copa America, what are the Copa America guys going to do while Bradley is with the Gold Cup team? Will we even have a camp to prepare for the South Americans?

The MLS regular season over the summer is pretty much gonna stink. With players away at the Gold Cup and the Copa Americam what sort of quality of play can we expect with those who remain with their teams?

any info on ticket sales for the final?

I agree with those who say this looks like a waste of time; we don't even get to play Mexico in Mexico, which is what the MNT needs. So perhaps the tourney could be made more interesting by fielding a team that would be entertaining to watch; I'm thinking Clint Mathis for drama, Lalas and Balboa as old-timers, Ray Hudson at right back just for the post-game interviews, etc.
