The US makes its first trip to Cuba since the 1950s for a WC qualifying match tomorrow night @8 on ESPN Classic. Just FYI. We should handle these guys pretty easily, but you never know. One interesting thing to note is that the Cuban fans are not hostile at all, especially when compared to those of Mexico and Guatemala. A lot of this has to do with the Cubans being different than the rest of the caribbean nations in that futbol is not their #1 sport, and probably not even in their top 3.

Return leg will be Saturday October 11th in DC... which I'll be there for!

Believe, son. You're gonna give UGA one hell of a game and more. All I can say is you better get that ass in the stadium on Saturday. You remind me a LOT of myself after the SC loss last year.

Oh I'm gonna be there- driving 7hrs down after work next Thursday. Mainly just going to see friends and tailgate. I just don't have any expectations, which is a blessing in disguise I suppose.

I used to have ESPN Classic as Channel 28 (ESPN2 being 27, and ESPN 26), but now channel 28 is NOGGIN', wtf is that crap? Still pisses me off to this day, so much soccer has been on since the switch.

Yeah it was the same when I left. Just checked its 1-0 US goal by Dempsey.

Good thing that game was when it was, Ike is about to roll through Cuba this week.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing re: Ike. Very fortunate timing.... especially so when you consider the possibility of relocating that game to a place like Miami instead, where the crowd would have been much more raucous.

Also agree on Howard. The guy has really been lights out recently, which bodes extremely well for us given our lack of offense (read: Since Bradley/B-Rad is doing his best Bruce Arena impression by playing the old and ineffective guys like Ching up front instead of Altidore.)
