Everywhere You Look...

... is someone covered in blue and white, if you're in Chicago. Going through the downtown area, in just about every neighborhood are small groups of fans. Especially if you're heading toward Millennium Park, Grant Park and down by the lake shore path to Soldier Field. While U.S. fans are gathering at local watering holes for the afternoon, Honduras fans have arrived - loudly - at Soldier Field hours before gates open.

It should make for a great atmosphere at Soldier Field!

Dumb idea to play this match in Chicago... at Soldier Field...

We're going to be outnumbered something like 70-30%!

How stupid can USSF be? What's next -- a home game against Mexico in LA? Well, the last qualifier against Costa Rica is scheduled for Washington, DC -- that will be another "home" game. Hopefully, it won't matter much then.

Why -was- this match put at Soldier? You guys had to have known how the crowd would turn out...

No matter how much more money you got out of it, it's not worth potentially losing a qualifier.

Wow... has the USSF ever made a decision that people didn't whine about? Ever? We sold over 50,000 tickets and won the match. What more could you ask for?

Both the Costa Rica game and Honduras showed that the US team lacks creativity at the top.
