US U-17s vs Wizards tonight

The US U-17s are playing the Wizards reserves tonight at the Wizards Swope Park Training Facility. They will be on the turf field with the lights. Open to the public, free of charge and a good chance to see some of the future stars. Hillcrest Road has the U-17s roster.

See you there!!

Watch Party Photos

I wanted to post a few shots from the US - Honduras/Wizards - Chivas watch party at the 810 Zone on the Plaza. First, I want to say thank to the 810 Zone for hosting it. Since the rights to the game were owned by Honduras, the game was only on pay per view. It was not cheap so very few places bought it. The 810 zone was the only place in the region. They were packed that night, every area was full and they had to stop people from coming in.

The broadcast itself was horrible. Stop motion animation movies from the 1950's were smoother than the game broadcast.

I ended up in a room that was mostly filled with American Outlaws (US Supporters group). Here they are cheering the first US goal.


Still celebrating. A few Honduran fans were quiet most of the night...


A little happy!!!


This room was packed, as was all the other areas...


The second goal...


Sam cheering...


Happy US fans...


Justice...


Our server Anjela (sorry if I misspelled your name). She was fantastic, fighting through the crowd to bring us food and drink. Great job keeping up with that many people and tables.


A few more shots here.

Again, thanks to the 810 Zone for hosting the watch party!!!
