    That's a pretty big honking stadium considering the lack of folks the USWNT has brought in attendancewise in 2002 (excluding the Safeco matches).

    I was down in that neck of the woods for the Winter Olys and discovered this kickass pizza place on the edge of the UofU campus..."The Pie (but it's the PI symbol)". Very cheesy pizzas so take the Lactaid if you can't handle dairy products.

    I certainly hope soccer organizations in the region (including southeastern Idaho) really help pimp this match.

    Excited the women's team is coming here to Utah. Hopefully we can get a good showing. The stadium holds about 45000 (was 50000 for the Olympics with some temporary bleachers) and when the Utah Blitzz team plays home games there in front of 3000-4000, the place looks empty.

    Women's sports is a tough draw here. The WBNA team moved to San Antonio a few months ago and about the college women's team that draws around here is the Univ. of Utah women's gymnastics team (which is sort of a different crowd anyway) which consistently gets 10000 fans a match.

    "The Pie" definitely is the place to go for pizza here in Salt Lake. They had a small fire there a few months ago, but the place survived and is still open for business.
