Now that we know our opponents, it might be time to speculate on venues, though the draw for the Hex is still a few weeks away. Considering that Seattle is "rumored" to be getting 2 Gold Cup games in July of 2005, I don't see them getting a WCQ, unfortunately. Here's what I'd like to see & think would give us the BEST home-field advantage: Costa Rica - Soldier Field, Chicago. IMHO Chicago deserves a shot at hosting a WCQ & based on the Poland friendly should draw a solid, pro-USA crowd. Guatemala - PGE, Portland. Probably not gonna happen but WHY NOT?!! Mexico - Crew Stadium, Columbus. Hopefully, in freezin' cold AGAIN!! Panama - HDC, Los Angeles. The "Home of American Soccer" NEEDS a WCQ. Trinidad - Gillette Stadium, Foxboro. Of course, a lot could change depending on the scheduling dates. There's the new stadium in Frisco, Texas that MIGHT get a game & there's always Rice-Eccles in Salt Lake that could get a game since ReAl Salt Lake will join MLS next year. Thoughts?? Opinions??
