Nashville Notes

A few last things before I get on the RCU bus up to Nashville:

As of this morning, 22,000 tickets have been sold.  I would expect a few thousand walk-ups and a possible crowd of 25,000.  Despite the frustration I have with the USA's support at home, that's not bad for a cool, wet Tuesday night game.

If you are not heading up I65, the game will be shown on FSC with a full pre-game and post game show.  Coverage begins at 6:30 PM.

There area also some other pretty good matches on TV today.
1:30 PM, Germany v Australia, ESPN2
2 PM, England v Ghana, FSC
4 PM, Columbia v Chile, FSC

There's plenty of speculation that the Yanks goalscorer on Saturday Juan Agudelo will get his first start for the USMNT.  But if it weren't for his call up, he'd be in Guatemala with the US U-20s as they attempt to qualify for the U20 World Cup.  This USA U20 is chock full of seasoned professionals and is probably the most experienced U20 group the US has ever put on the field.  If you have access to ESPN3.com, you can also watch the U-20s play Suriname at 7 PM, but if I were you, I'd watch the replay after the US v Paraguay match finishes.
