Zidane….that’s right, Zidane in Vancouver B.C. July 4

I really don’t like the timing on this, seeing as the Gold Cup will be going on at Qwest Field that day, but Bob Wickwire gave me a copy of Seattle Weekly today and there was an ad on page 10.

The ad announces a “Zidane & Friends All-Star Match” featuring names like Costacurta, Baresi, Gattuso, Eto’o, Giuly, Sacchi and “many more!” Game is in Vancouver B.C. at BC Place Stadium, 8 p.m. start with gates opening at 6. Tickets go on sale May 7 (that’s Thursday) at 10 a.m. via www.ticketmaster.ca (Canada’s TicketMaster). Here’s a link to more info. Looks like there is already an Internet presale going on.

Wow. That seems like quite an event. Zizou is a legend. Will you Seattleites skip the Gold Cup doubleheader for this? Let me know.
