Not Too Shabby...

If you're reading this, you've probably heard by now that with Saturday's win in Cuba, the U.S. has won three straight road qualifiers for the first time in history. Road qualifiers, and qualifiers in general, aren't always the most glamorous games and the best team doesn't always win.

To give you a better idea of what it means to play in a place like Guatemala, Cuba or any of the other CONCACAF nations, we caught up with a few people who know a thing or two about it.

“One time before a game, we got stuck in an elevator because they turned off the power, said one former U.S. MNT star. “Another time they had horns and radios blaring outside our hotel all night. Sometimes the fire alarm goes off at 3 a.m. and keeps going off all night.”

Yep, but it's all worth it when you win. :)
