|Womens World Cup Tickets... 1st local games this weekend||PdxMark|

|One interesting twist on the recent SARS epidemic was that the womens world cup was moved from its scheduled China location to the US. Somehow Portland rated a great slate of games, which begin this weekend. The tickets were sold as a block, so we'll be seeing 3 double headers over a week.
Is anyone else going to see any World Cup matches?
This weekend we see Australia vs. Ghana and then powerhouse China vs. Russia (all four in group D).
Next week we see quarter-final games between the top 2 teams in groups C & D... Likely China & Russia from D, Germany and either Canada or Japan from C.
Then, the following weekend, we see the semi-finals... two games among the sole surviving teams from each of groups A, B, C, and D.
If I play my cards right at home, I may even be able to get in a ride before the first game this Sunday.

|I watche the championship match in -person a few years back in the Rose Bowl. Amazing--110K people in attendance, mostly fathers and daughters. It was great, albeit hotter than two rats makin' whoopie in a whool sock.
Incidentally, my wife's cousin is on the team and has been for a damn long time.

|There are even $175 tickets available...
There are smaller venues this time with the late scheduling. Our local stadium seats just 30,000.

|I'm not going to the World Cup, but I have been to some Galaxy matches at the new Home Depot Center. I was very impressed with the stadium. There doesn't seem to be a bad seat in the place. It's well designed and the size (approximately 27,000 for soccer) is just right. It still has a few bugs, including terrible concessions service, but it has quickly become my favorite sports venue in southern California.|| |
