CONCACAF Gold Cup: Honduras vs. USA

24 July 2009 No Comment

After witnessing history at U.S. Cellular Field Thursday afternoon, I headed to Soldier Field to watch the Gold Cup doubleheader Thursday evening. As I wrote yesterday, my friend Liam called me with luxury box tickets for the event – the first time I would sit in a luxury box at Soldier Field.

Pre Game
I took the train back from U.S. Cellular Field to the Roosevelt red line stop where I was to meet Liam. As I walked by Sam’s Wines and Liquors, I noticed they had a wine tasting bar where I could sit, wait and watch highlights of Mark Buehrle’s perfect game. I had not noticed the bar before when walking to Soldier Field for Chicago Bears games.

Soldier Field Luxury Box
We were in one of the CONCACAF luxury boxes so we were towards mid-field. The box came with everything one would expect – unlimited food and drinks.

The Game
Using a junior team, the United States defeated Honduras 2-0 in the first semi-final of the evening.
