Fight on

I have my camera with me but I got a new memory card recently and for some reason I can't download it directly to the laptop. I have to use the base and a lot of wires and crap that I don't have, so you might have to wait a day for some pictures.

But I can tell you about my first impression from the stadium here as we get ready for Mexico-Guatemala. If my kiss of death earlier doesn't sink Mexico in, perhaps the locals' will. The huge "Trojans SC" logo is quite visible in the center circle as are the "USC" marks on each end zone.

The collegiate football hosts here have played like crap recently right here in this building, and perhaps that my carry over to the "hosts" in the futbol soccer part.

There's quite a few blue flags here right now so at the very least we should have a good atmosphere. I'm a bit disappointed, however, that a somewhat small crowd is expected. The chatter here is that there will be somewhere around 30-40,000 here tonight. I was thinking upwards of 50,000 or more but apparently Hugo Sanchez's first game as Mexico coach in LA isn't as big as I assumed.

If you have a Dell, you need to download a driver to allow you to download from a >1 GB card in the slot...
