    Boston, New York, Baltimore and DC all are an easy (well sort of ) trip for me. Lived in LA in 84 watched the Olympic gold medal match (Fr/Bra.) in a packed Rose Bowl. An event unmatched in this country before that and long after.

    Pasadena for the final?

    Atlanta would suck. Fresh grass over turf is a horrible surface.

    What a cracker of a match Spain Portugal. Not a big fan of Ronaldo but you have to give it to him. What goals!

    The guy is aging remarkably. I thought he was done after the Brazil World Cup. Instead he has turned himself into a center forward, still scores massively, and has lifted his national team. And now a hat trick.

    So impressive, regardless of his style.

    Ronaldo in internationals Before 30th birthday: 52 goals in 118 games
    Since 30th birthday: 32 in 33
    Ronaldo in CL Before 30th: 72 goals in 109 games
    Since 30th: 48 in 44
    At an age when mortals are winding down, on the stages where greatness is decided, he is getting better
