Population Influx

The Lancaster/Palmdale area has been overtaken by youth soccer teams, as players around the country converge on local hotels and malls. The blog headed over to one of the team's hotels (filming a piece for an upcoming Studio 90) and found the place swarming with activity. FC Greater Boston Bolts, Carmel United and NYRB thronged around the meal room and lobby. Some teams were preparing to leave for their 10 a.m. games, while others were getting a meal in a few hours before a noon kickoff. The hotel staff looks a bit stunned, but they're coping with the commotion pretty well. We'll see how things are holding up closer to Day 4.
