Gold Cup: Honduras v. Haiti

Nice to be in the shade here at Qwest, donde estamos mirando al juego de Honduras contra Haiti.
Already seen three yellows, it’s a physical game. No score in the 27th minute as I write. Of course the real show is next, U.S. vs. Grenada.
Good crowd here for the opener, I’m kind of surprised. Mostly Honduras fans. There might be 10,000 people here already.
Honduras nickname: Los Catrachos. Haiti: Les Grenadiers.
Another yellow. That’s three on Haiti.
Here’s the scene from the start of the game.

Picked up a couple of jerseys across the street — U.S. white with horizontal stripes and FC Barcelona. The new one. Thanks to Stephanie for the input, kept me from getting the yellow FCB kit.
