Oh Say Can You See

Tomorrow night, the U.S Men's National Team can qualify for the 2010 World Cup with a win against Honduras in San Pedro Sula. With so much political turmoil boiling in the Honduran capital, the tension surrounding the already important match has reached a fever pitch.

Check out this video and watch all the security and media following the Yanks around the city. It'll be a difficult match for so many reasons and I hope you all can check it out. As Shawn Francis wrote on The Offside Rules: "Judging by the amount of guns and journalists around it's not another country, it's another world; no matter how much you follow the American game, sometimes you forget what the game is like in the rest of the world."

Unfortunately, a Central American company bought the US television rights and will only be showing it at certain bars on a closed-circuit...but I'm sure pirated streams will be available online.
