Alas I passed on tickets for tonight's match. Didn't feel like freezing on a Thursday. If it had been a weekend match I probably would have gone.

Alphonso Davies not available for this window -- he contracted Covid a few weeks ago and it led to mild myocarditis, which means no physical activity for a month (reportedly he is spending his off-time playing legos).

But that's okay: Canada is far from a one-man team and its depth will surprise people. It survived the September window without Davies and it can survive this one.

And less we forget our Heritage Moment:

I'll be there next Wednesday night in St. Paul.

Looking forward to freezing my ass off with my wife, brother, and his wife in the stands. Never been to a professional soccer game before.

I've been to a bunch. Only 1 USA match. The energy is insane

Why did they select someplace freezing for a soccer match in January?

Homefield advantage.

Play two teams from Central America (El Salvador tonight in Columbus, and Honduras in St. Paul next week) in warm conditions, or in frigid conditions....the choice is easy. And both of those cities have huge soccer followings.

Something tells me we don't have a lot of players that are used to playing matches in sub freezing temps.

The pitch is awful, but probably an 8 out of 10 by CONCACAF standards
 
2022-01-27 7:13:45 PM  
Pitch is super soft tonight. Weather here can't have made it easy to get it where they want it.

Hell of a lot more than El Salvador.

Bless US Soccer. Still not clued up how to CONCACAF VAR actually works. They think it is based on merits of decision.  Bless. And not about instant wire transfers to unnamed offshore accounts in the Cayman Islands. Fools

What was he doing?! He was playing some motherfarking futbol, that's what he was doing.

Matt Turner to Arsenal!

Get home from work and see that the US is being its frustration self.

Anderson's Pooper: Matt Turner to Arsenal!


As much as I want to see US players go to Europe, I don't like this.
He needs to go somewhere to play, not ride the bench.

If the ref doesn't pull a gun, it's good day at concacaf..
That's a trip in the box before half.

I say 2 yellow, maybe a red,
1-0 el Salvador my prediction.

It is literally named after a latitude.

Where do you think it is?

Why, pray tell, does Columbus suck?


Because their BBQ is garbage. It's ketchup with more vinegar. That's literally all I've got. Aside from that I have no issue with it. Well, that and it's like the only place in Ohio that hasn't produced an astronaut yet. At least one died there.
