    One down one to go! Beat Jordan 4 nil, in a pretty clincal display. Was a great crowd of 43,000 for a cold Tuesday night. Play Iraq next Tuesday a win and we are in to the WC a draw and we are relient on results.

    Watching Mexico-Costa Rica, Mexican fans hit Brian Ruiz with objects while trying to take a corner. At some point, FIFA needs to step in and make Mexico play in an empty stadium.

    They look much, much better. Please, some consistency now.

    El Tri always keeps it classy.

    Would be so delicious if they somehow managed to not qualify.

    Did I imagine it, or did the US actually look like they had some imagination in the final third?

    Seattle crowd is amazing. As good as any noisy passionate venue in Europe.

    Great energy from the fans, but the pitch is a joke. They should seriously consider building a soccer-specific venue with a permanent grass field.

    I'd like to see what kind of crowd Seattle could pull with no restrictions on ticket sales.

    I'd also love to see a WCQ at Jeld-Wen in Portland too -- the environment for games there see s fantastic as well.

    Seeing Seattle and Portland in the MLS is what raised my interest in the MLS. Both appear to have a great set of Ultras.

    Portland's Timber Army is definitely top notch. Columbus' Nordecke and Chicago's Section 8 are noteworthy as well. In the last decade, many MLS teams have moved away from marketing solely to the "soccer mom" crowd and have done more to encourage the supporters groups in a positive way. I know Columbus' front office has annual meetings with supporters' groups to discuss ways in which the supporters' groups can do their thing while making sure things like safety are addressed. They actually seek input from the groups, which is different from other sports, where the front office dictates rules for fan behavior from above.

    They might pull a bigger crowd, but I think, at least for now, limiting tickets actually helped keep the crowd concentrated, which helps focus the chants of the American Outlaws supporters and maybe even draws in fans who aren't part of the group into the chants. It's the same effect when they play in smaller venues like Columbus. The USSF has gotten smarter about where they play. They used to just schedule games at the places where they could sell the most tickets. But the problems were that the US supporters had trouble being heard and they had a lot of folks from the immigrant communities buying up seats and rooting for the other team (not unlike Cubs and Steeler fans). Now they seem to strategically schedule games in places where they feel the fans can create a home field advantage.

    I would agree that Portland would be a good place for a WCQ. However, I do like that they tend to schedule the US-Mexico games in Columbus. Now if I could just get tickets.

    I'm not going to read the whole thread so if this joke has already been made, deal with it.

    When I saw the subject line I couldn't believe (wait for it) that there was such a long thread about the teenaged mutant ninja turtles
    "But I do know Joey's sister indirectly (or foster sister) and I have heard stories of Joey being into shopping, designer wear, fancy coffees, and pedicures."
