The US Is Coming! ..... maybe

Looks like the US Mens National Team, USMNT, could be coming to Denver. Props to Bonji (From College To Pros)for mentioning this one in his email. I was too busy chasing tail last night to have read about it.

Sports Illustrated: "If the U.S. advances, it would have home games Sept. 10 (most likely against Trinidad and Tobago), Oct. 11 (most likely Cuba) and Nov. 19 (most likely Guatemala)." "In contention to host the games are Bridgeview, Ill.; Columbus, Ohio; Commerce City, Colo.; Frisco, Texas; Seattle; and Washington, D.C., U.S. Soccer Federation president Sunil Gulati said Thursday." Seattle, Columbus, Frisco and DC have all hosted National Team games in the past. I can't remember but Bridgeview may have hosted a game already as well. US Soccer tends to like to spread the love around so Colorado should be higher on the list then those four. With three games to go around, there is a good chance Colorado will host one World Cup Qualifier.
