Goffer, no Mason love? surely if you can shout out AU you can shout out Mason game.

I assume that you'll not be flying to T&T because the US is already in the hexagonal. Too bad. You'll miss out on really good dark rum and "Indian" food unlike any Indian food you'll find here.

There's hope, though, if T&T makes it to the final 6.

Goff any idea on tickets sold for Thursday nights game at RFK?
I am sure you'll update us on Crayton's shoulder and maybe Emilio's status as well when you know.
Thanks

Mason doesn't play today, do they?

No T&T for me. I've been there once before...a USA qualifier during Carnival!

No idea on attendance for DC on Thursday. I would guess low to mid teens.

They also love matches they can afford to broadcast - hence 'Gales'

Thanks Steve. Hey I sure hope lots of folks come out for the last league home game of the year! I know it's a school night and all but I'm sure United could use all the support they can get.

Interesting story on love.futbol (the Guate story)...but the last field built 10 months ago? And no concrete plans for another?

It's not a school night for Mont. Co (all MD?) kids - Friday is a school holiday. My 6 year old is excited about going to the match and cheering for Moreno. I'm excited because I get to go to another match (well, it's not really for me. You see, my son really wants to go and I don't want to disappoint him).

Nice to see that one DC resident is able to get soccer fields built. Maybe McFarland should hire him.
