I did, here's what I got back:
take that as you will
Have fun! USAUSAUSA
Onyewu looks like David Stokes out there tonight. Sweet goal.
Actually, that wasn't bad at all, traffic wise.
Where in the world did they get such ugly kids to come out with the players?
Goff lists the top 10 attended soccer events in the region:
I've only been to 3. That's because I never attended a game prior to 1996 (wanted to go to WC94, but couldn't, and same for 96 Olympics), and because I have waning to little interest in non-DC United games.
I'd been to five of those, but my experience getting out of the the FedEx parking lot at Barca-ManU last year made going out to FedEx for a midweek match a complete non-starter.
I learned my lesson about fedex at the DC-Real match. I took the metro for the US-Brazil (didn't go to man-barca) and it worked so much better.
I took Metro there for the US-Germany WWC match. I'm sure things have improved in the 13 years since, but the shuttle buses were so poorly organized for that event that although we got to the Metro station somewhere between 45-60 minutes before kickoff, we didn't get into the stadium until well after the match started. I recall getting to my seat the moment we scored an own goal.
I think I only missed the MLS final among those ten.
See I was at that one, and I didn't think it was too bad. Free parking, and getting in was bad, but I don't remember getting out to be a problem. Strange.
If I remember correctly, I was out of town that weekend. The most memorable was the Dips v Cosmos.
Do they even allow shuttles anymore?
Metro didn't seem that prepared for the crowd last night. Driving isn't as bad as people make it out to be. Especially that late, traffic isn't a huge problem and they do a decent job of routing traffic to the stadium and parking. It can take a few minutes to get out of the parking lots, but once you do, you're likely moving. I prefer driving, but didn't want to pay for parking.
I only went to 7 of the top 10. I'm such a disappointmentt.
What? wmata not prepared? Doesn't sound like the wmata I know.
I didn't really think that the traffic was that bad, but we didn't try to leave immediately after the game either. It's best if you approach it with a post-tailgate in mind, but obviously a week night can make that tough. I think we left maybe like 45-60 minutes after the final whistle or so, and more or less cruised out.
Now, the midnight construction reducing traffic to a single lane on 495 in VA? Yeah, that was not cool. Not cool at all.
I admit the last time I drove to FedEx, I waited until the parking lots had cleared out since I was running late going to the stadium and was driving around on Empty and didn't want to waste fumes attempting to get to a gas station afterward.
I thought that was an obvious plan? Even though RFK might not be as bad, we do the same thing there. Tailgate after.
I was in the green lot, near the exit, and it was miserable trying to get out. My friends and I hung out for 20-25 minutes after the final whistle and decided to get in the car. We sat for about an hour, moving maybe 20 yards in that time. Pathetic.
Just another reason to never go to FedEx Field.
Brazil is clearly throwing the game. There will be no living with those people after this.... lol
I'm not sure if I hate Mexico or Brazil more after that shit. Brazil is trying to thug it up more than their women's team.
No, they just got outplayed.
Which people are those?
you are quite right and i was joking, though that couldn't have been apparent from my comment.
Mexicans. And again, that was a joke. I expect a fair amount of teasing in this coming week from colleagues and contemporaries of mexican descent following their victory versus brazil and in contrast with the U.S.'s defeat by brazil earlier in the week.
********ing Scotland for making us think we had a chance in the next couple of games.
Better lock it down if they want to beat Guatemala.
