There likely would not have been had we even made it there.  Traffic sucked on the only road to the coast.  We determined at the point of no return to turn around go get barbecue, shop at some places that otherwise are a PITA to get to, and head home.  It saved so much hassle fighting traffic on a two lane road for 12 miles over hills and through a switchback pass.

Ok so I'm bored and drinking already, and I'm trying to work out the numbers for who we'll play on the 19th based on today's results.  If a Group C 3rd place team qualifies, we get them.  Otherwise we get the Group A team (Honduras).  Mexico and Jamaica have already advanced from Group C.

If El Salvador defeats Jamaica by any score, we play Jamaica.

If El Salvador and Jamaica draw, we play El Salvador.

If El Salvador loses 1-0, we play El Salvador.

If El Salvador loses 2-1, we play El Salvador.

If El Salvador loses 2-0 (or by 3, 4, 5, etc goals). we play Honduras.

If El Salvador loses 3-1, lots are drawn between them and Martinique.

If Curacao beats Mexico, someone needs to whip out a slide rule.

Anyway, I think I got it right?

I only get this game on Univision. Any other stations for it I'm missing? I don't mind spanish language setup since I'm not really listening to the commentary anyhow, but would switch if there's an option.

I'm watching it on Fox Sports 2 (ch 618 on DirecTV).  If you have it.

Nice. Thanks. It wasn't coming up in search but I manually found it based on channel.

Also, FS2 is 4-5 seconds ahead of Univision

Game is a bit slow at the moment.

And Burke is down
 
2017-07-16 06:21:19 PM  
Wake up from my nap to see El Salvador score.
0-1

Dammit...missed the goal

Caught the replay.  Did not think a Salvadoran knew that much english

Speaking of goal celebrations, did anyone see the last Panama celebration? My wife couldn't stop laughing and neither of us could think of anything other than the universal symbol for pleasuring a lady. Is there another meaning in that culture? If you missed it, let's just say a peace sign over the lips

I saw it and was wondering the symbolism myself.

I tried a quick search and could find nothing on it. El Salvador wants to win the group

Jamaica getting really close to goal there
 
2017-07-16 06:55:11 PM  
And half time has the Reggae Boys down a goal
 
2017-07-16 07:10:30 PM  
Wonder if Jamaica gets it together here

I am wondering if they will finish the match with 11 men on the pitch
 
2017-07-16 07:19:14 PM  
That looked like a bad offside call
 
2017-07-16 07:20:53 PM  
The difference in crowd size between this game and the next is going to be amazing.

I live in San Antonio. This city- especially the South Side- loves El Tri.

This has been the story for the whole round robin.  The first matches of the double header have had meager attendance while the 2nd game is a packed house.
 
2017-07-16 07:26:10 PM  
Penalty kick for Jamaica due to hand ball!
 
2017-07-16 07:26:34 PM  
PK for a hand ball.
Jamaica ties the game.
1-1
 
2017-07-16 07:26:43 PM  
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL
 
2017-07-16 07:26:58 PM  
Can Maddox score from the spot?..yes.  Keeper guessed right too

Cleveland had 27,000 as the attendance. Lower bowl was pretty filled up, but I'm not sure if that'll be enough to get it a WC site over say Columbus or Soldier Field

USMNT should be taking notes here

For possession or taking PKs?

Oh that was some great forward play by Jamaica, just lacking the finish.

Yeah, that is a hand ball, but no call?
 
2017-07-16 07:57:35 PM  
No Mexico blowout for me. Simpsons dvd then Game of thrones

From the looks of it, I would have been in the same row as you, just in 119
 
2017-07-16 08:38:51 PM  
And finally, dear sweet Footie Jesus, please let El Tri lose

Interesting that in the last match, in the second half, Mexico had 72% possession and could not get a goal
 
2017-07-16 08:45:20 PM  
I must applaud Curaçao for coming to play today despite being eliminated.
 
2017-07-16 08:46:55 PM  
So watching last night's match on TV. I don't know how Copete could say anything about the red card. Cause that wasn't even close.  Shoulder into the chest.
 
2017-07-16 08:49:17 PM  
Oh, what an unfortunate turnover by Curaçao.
 
2017-07-16 08:50:21 PM  
Good save by Corona.
 
2017-07-16 08:50:53 PM  
Big save from the Mexican keeper
 
2017-07-16 08:55:16 PM  
Curacao with the 3/10 Rooney.
 
2017-07-16 08:55:34 PM  
Waste of a free kick there.  Typical Villa
 
2017-07-16 08:56:07 PM  
My twin from a different mother is there tonight. I told him he needed to go through the crowd and punch all the Puta yellers.  He said his wife, a Mexican native, might disown him.
 
2017-07-16 08:57:33 PM  
Also, Aaron Ramsey must be going crazy in some pre-season friendly somewhere.
George Romero and now Martin Landau
 
2017-07-16 08:59:20 PM  
Oh damn.  Mexico scores against the run on a very tight shot.
