US Soccer Hates the South.

Or at least that's the message I get from US Soccer when they keep scheduling US National Team matches on weeknights. Numerous times in the past 'qualifying season', the organization has scheduled friendlies and qualifying matches in Birmingham, Nashville, Cary NC and played them on a work/school night.

I could understand this in the height of southern collegiate football season. I'm a BIG football and a BIG futbol(aka Soccer) fan. You'd be silly to try and do a match for the fans and make any money off of it while UGA plays the St. Mary's Catholic School for Blind Girls. Heck, baseball season hasn't even started yet, and NBA basketball? Pfftptpt!

Give us a break US Soccer. We want to support you, but why do you have to make it so damn hard?
