    It's my fantasy, so I'd have the punter take a knee in the end zone to end the game.

    That game definitely had a World Cup "vibe" to it and the crowd atmosphere and general atmosphere was pure electricity.

    At the end when the players walked to each side of the stadium to applaud the crowd while draped in American flags was an incredibly emotional experience. Definitely the best sporting event--heck maybe event period--that I've ever attended.

    Here is an AWESOME three part video put out by U.S. Soccer that has a couple pre-game interviews, highlights, and on-field reactions and post-game interviews with the players:

    I was at that game as well. It was an awesome experience. I have been to almost all of the US team games in Columbus except for the freezing Feb qualifier. Nothing beats it for atmosphere. Hopefully they come back soon.

    You were talking earlier in the post about EPL games. I attended as a Chelsea supporter a Fulham/Chelsea derby at Craven Cottage last September and sat in the Fulham stands. It was hard to keep quiet especially when Lampard converted a PK goal. I also attended a Chelsea home match against Aston Villa and sat in the aisle directly next to the Villa fans. Another thing you have to experience. I hope to go over in another few years. It was a great time.

    As for your talk about Lampard in England, who's one of my favorite players, is he hasn't scored many goals lately but I think he's playing great defense in his role. I just don't see him making as many runs like he does with Chelsea. I think another thing is he hasn't taken set piece kicks as well as Beckham and that's what England fans are used to lately. Hopefully the summer break will get him rested and ready for the next set of Euro qualifiers.
