Tonight's 1-0 USA victory over Costa Rica in 2014 World Cup Qualifying will be remembered for years and years to come thanks to blizzard conditions we've never seen for a soccer game. We just need a name for it. The Snow Bowl is already taken, hmm... maybe the folks at the Weather Channel can think of something since they're into naming every storm with an inch of precipitation these days. Anyways, credit goes to everyone involved, especially the ESPN broadcast team. Ian Darke and Taylor Twellman were great in the booth providing context to the unprecedented circumstances. And the on-site OUTDOOR studio crew of Bob Ley, Alexi Lalas, and Kasey Keller put in yeoman's work in unique conditions. If there's anyone I want on the front lines in Bristol leading the troops into unknown territory like this, it's General Ley. He doesn't even need a fluffy winter hat! That's true leadership!

I'm going to post a comment on here Tonya. "Snow Cup". What was the USSF thinking when they scheduled a March WQC in Colorado? Play it in Texas or Florida and play one of the summer WCQ in Colorado.
Hunter just won the contest and ended reasons for anyone else to post something here. Hunter, you are my hero!
@awfulannouncing Have to say this game took the cake today. FGCU's win was cool but it took forever to become final.
@RM_Preston He don't need no stinking hat!
@NussCoug I really admire him. So good at what he does and so under appreciated. Also, I want him to be my grandpa.
