U.S. Soccer overlaid sod onto bare concrete at the Alamodome for a friendly with Mexico. This was an ingenious solution to the dearth of large capacity sports venues in the continental U.S. capable of hosting an event on a Wednesday night in April.
The pitch, as a logical consequence, looks lumpy and terrible. Mexico refused to train on it. The match is set to be played as scheduled. Look forward to watching 22 men try not to ruin their knees. U.S. Soccer pledges it will look better tomorrow night.
If you’re planning to buy green spray paint in the greater San Antonio area, you may be SOL.
