Week 12 Attendance Update

The Greatest Spectacle in Racing
Sorry for the delay. This Memorial Day weekend I took a 5 day trip to the Indy 500 and a few other midwest   cities. I saw my Minnesota Twins lose to the Chicago White Sox at US Cellular too. I enjoyed some sporting events, and the epitome of white trash. I even got to see some of the USMNT game vs Scotland  in a restaurant. They clicked and this was a good start for this 5 game stretch for them. Maybe when Landon returns to LA they can change their ways, but as for now, they are at the bottom of the Western conference.

I did not see much of the MLS games, but they looked to be exciting and full of goals. This Memorial Day Weekend was also good for attendance as many teams had large or sell out crowds.

  1. USA wins @ soccer. Scotland wins the Indy 500.

  2. I enjoy your post every week. Im curious, how does attendance progress during the course of a season? This has been an unusually warm spring so that would explain most of the positive numbers.

    BTW, to any that read this. I need to find a place to relocate a small business, I want to live in a soccer crazy town that still feels like a community, is Portland the place. Please help, email or add me on Facebook or something, Im at jason_roma@hotmail.com Id appreciate anybodys help!
