    Why a USMNT qualifier at Crew Stadium; only the USSF gurus can explain this venue selection. And why the Tampa venue for the Antigua contest when a better idea would have been for the opponent to take a longer trip into the CONUS heartland.

    Why a USMNT qualifier at Crew Stadium? Why not? The question is why not Mexico in January?
