    Great. The long-awaited game between the US and Canada - not rivals, but partners in association football and sharers of destiny - is to take place on a narrow plastic field.

    Canada will win. Onyewu will blow out his knee. Agudelo and Bradley will be sent off and Chandler will wonder why he even bothered. Mark my words.

    I think Brian is pretty close to predicting actual outcome. I see disaster for this whole turnament.

    When are they going to play International games at qwest. The northwest has the most awsome soccer fan base in america. Detroit really! Really! Has the ussf not heard how awsome we are during sounder games. The loudest in MLS. Plus if the U.S. plays there the american fans will out number any other teams fans by 5 to 1. Come on!
