Salt Lake City maybe. Seattle and Portland would definitely have a good home crowd feel, but they don't have the weather. My brother lived in Seattle for a while and raved about how mild the winters were after having lived in Ohio and Chicago. It rains there in the winter, but it's often more of a mist than a real downpour. Seattle also has field turf instead of real grass. Chicago would have sufficient bad weather in February, but they also have a large Mexican immigrant community who would come out for the game, similar to New England. Cleveland or Pittsburgh would be good, but I don't know if their football stadiums are wide enough for soccer. Columbus is ideal because they get cold weather, a good home crowd, and the USMNT gets results there. However, as WMR said, they might not get another game that soon after hosting Jamaica.
