Ramblings of a Soccer Junky

  No, it's not a U2 concert
The US-Mexico game in Columbus next month sold out in 20 minutes yesterday. Well not exactly, but it's still pretty impressive.

Tickets when on pre-sale a week ago to local groups, Crew season ticket holders and fans who have registered at ussoccer.com. This was done in an effort to get as pro a US crowd as possible. However, I'm sure a decent number of enterprising Mexican fans will have managed to get tickets as well.

But for someone who has followed US Soccer for over 15 years now, this is about as impressive as it gets. Who knows...maybe we'll see a US-Mexico game in LA where 95% of the fans aren't there to cheer for the visitors....yeah, I'm dreaming again.
