Update on Celtic-Rangers friendly at Fenway

The Boston Herald uncovers the details of the proposed Glasgow Rangers-Glasgow Celtic friendly at Fenway Park, a story that broke on the Insider on Wednesday night:

The Red Sox and the city are in negotiations to bring the Celtic-Rangers match to Fenway on July 21 for a friendly. There's a conference call on the subject tonight and the team hopes to have word soon. The Sox are in competition for the match with Baltimore.

[Here's another story.]

Baltimore would make sense if Celtic plays in Philly and Rangers play DCU. That way they can meet in the middle.

This FCD - Seattle game is an abysmal, wretchedly poor and boring soccer game (except for Montero's free kick, which was nice). And to think people say the level of play in MLS has gone way up. Blecccch.

It's not about the play on the field Ron, it's about how many jerseys are bought, scarves are raised, and how "European" the game day atmosphere is. Obviously tonight's match was an "epic FAIL" in that regard.

On a bright note, I loved how the fat Sounders travel support started chanting again when they realized they were on TV. That was cute. I also think it took a whole 25 minutes or so before Harkes brought up Xavi this time around...:)

You can expect great sight lines for that one. Something akin to the minor league park where the Wizards play. Talk about a metro area that needs a dedicated soccer venue. Even the Boston WPS team has to play on the throw ball field at Harvard. They should move that game to Hartford. At least that is a decent soccer pitch.

Lyon/Bayern was highly entertaining. This guy Robben, well he may not be Fredy Montero, but he's pretty decent.

I just switched over to the end of Dallas - Seattle after 30Rock and saw the dubious game-ending PK.

Why wasn't Keller in goal at the end?

Keller left the game after supposedly having blurred vision after his collision/late tackle that drew Dallas's first PK. He didn't look right.

Kudos for citing the Herald, Steve. That must have been a little painful for you...

Awesome. SNL will have to bring back Mike Myers and Jimmy Fallon to do a "Scottish Soccer Hooligan Weekly"/"Boston Teens" mash-up. Andy Gray, meet Pat "Sully" Sullivan!

I wonder how amny fans will turn up, expecting a game between the Boston basketball team and the Texas baseball team.

I live near Boston and I'm certainly interested, especially since I'm a transit rider who can get there, unlike the Foxboro boonies. I wonder how the field will be oriented, since they probably want to affect the infield as little as possible. Bars everywhere, hmmm. One blogger I've read assumes the worst and says security costs will be huge.

Here's a photo gallery of the Fenway hockey game between Boston University and Boston College, played one week after the Winter Classic. Check out BU's red jerseys.
