So, the US national team plays Honduras here at Sun Life Stadium on Saturday night, a rare opportunity to see two World Cup teams up close. All the US stars will be here -- Landon Donovan, Tim Howard, Jozy Altidore, etc...and how many tickets had been sold as of Monday? 6,800. No, that is not a typo. According to a US Soccer official, fewer than 7,000 tickets had been sold in the same market that drew 71,000 to Barcelona vs. Chivas in August.
Shame on you, Miami! If fans don't step it up big time, I don't EVER want to hear whining about how this market deserves an MLS team. Ok, so the game is at 6 p.m. (not ideal), and it's on Yom Kippur (the Jewish population in the stadium probably won't be very high), but still...USA vs. Honduras in your town, you haven't bought tickets and you call yourselves soccer fans?
C'Mon, Miami. You can do better than that. Thoughts?
