Early Shift and Best Wishes from Abroad

Part of the YNT Blog has been disptached to the Stadium to cover the first game between Panama and Honduras, which kicks off at 5:30, and those of us here early are spending the time in the press box getting everything ready for the media coming to tonight's doubleheader.

Inter Milan v. Liverpool is on ESPN2 and the match couldn't make for a better hors d'oeuvre to the games to come. Its currently 0-0 early in the second half, but with Liverpool holding a 2 goal advantage from the first leg it is about time the Italian champions started putting some goals in.

The Blog also checked in with Michael Bradley over IM - the Heerenveen midfielder is relaxing at home in Holland watching the same game we are over here. He said he's pulling for the Nerrazzurri but acknowledged that they need to get one on the board quickly to have a chance.

Michael also wished everyone over here the best of luck in tonight's game and throughout the rest of the tournament. He said he'd be watching the TV broadcast on his slingbox (though it may have to be on tape delay since it'll be pretty late over there).

That's all from here for now - we'll be back a bit later...

I wish the guys the best of luck, esp. my fellow Terps!!!

Why is Michael Bradley not with the qualifying team? If they make it through to the Olympics, will Michael join the team then for the Olympics?
