    I wouldn't know. I could barely see what was going on. Who schedules a game in Colorado in March?

    The US was lucky to get the early score, because the field conditions made the game unplayable in the second half.

    Still, 3 points is the 3 points. Hopefully they can at least score a draw in Azteca this week, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

    The US does it because it gives us a bigger home field advantage against our southern neighbors, just as Mexico likes to force us to play in Azteca during the day when we draw them for a summer match. I'd also point out that most European countries not only have WCQs this time of year, but also league play, Champions League and Europa League in full swing. Playing in Colorado this time of year is no different than playing in Vienna, Warsaw, or Moscow. Just because the MLS plays a summer schedule doesn't mean it's a warm weather sport. The vast majority of Northern Hemisphere leagues play a Fall to Spring schedule and take the Summer off.

    I read an article regarding the Costa Rican protest of this match (can't find it) which stated that the US scheduled to play this match at a high altitude site in preparation for the upcoming match in Mexico City.

    Gulati said the U.S. chose to play the game in Colorado in preparation for the altitude in Tuesday's game in Mexico City, and not to put its Central American opponent at a disadvantage with uncomfortable weather.


    Mexico City is about a half-mile higher above sea level than the mile-high conditions around Denver.


    "If the thought is that we want to play Costa Rica in a situation where it could snow, then there are some places that maybe could have been better, like Boston or somewhere," Gulati said, according to Reuters.
    Big win and I hope the result stands. A draw or better in Mexico City tuesday would be huge.

    The Costa Rican protest is more than laughable. Get back to us when your fans stop throwing urine, coins and batteries, Ticos.

    I'm absolutely expecting an "L" tonight -- getting out with 1 point would be fantastic.

    USA puts it together and wins 2-1. Goals by Altidore and Gonzalez.

    Considering our recent form, I'll be amazed if we can even get a draw. Here's hoping!

    Mexico isn't in good form either. Tie at home to Jamaica and blow a 2-0 lead to Honduras.

    Interesting line up. Besler starting at center back with Gonzlez. Welcome to the fire kids.

    Nice to see ESPN giving serious coverage to this match.

    Yeah, I can't remember the last time a non-World Cup game received this much pre-game coverage. Pretty cool.

    And yes, the US side is going to get rolled in this game.

    I'm guessing 3-0.
