    Man– Kacper on team of the week and I wished he was traded mid game on Sunday. MLS gonna MLS.

    So I saw FIFA was in town today to assess whether or not Philadelphia would be one of ten US cities to host World Cup games in 2026.
    .
    I am figuring the following 7 are most likely slam dunks based on size and geography;
    Los Angeles – Rose Bowl
    New York/New Jersey -MetLife Stadium
    Washington, D.C. – FedExField
    Dallas – AT&T Stadium
    Seattle – Lumen Field
    San Francisco Bay Area – Levi’s Stadium
    Boston – Gillette Stadium
    .
    Leaving Philly to compete for one of the three remaining slots with;
    Kansas City – Arrowhead Stadium
    Denver – Empower Field at Mile High
    Houston – NRG Stadium
    Baltimore – M&T Band Stadium
    Atlanta – Mercedes-Benz Stadium
    Nashville – Nissan Stadium
    Cincinnati – Paul Brown Stadium
    Miami – Hard Rock Stadium
    Orlando – Camping World Stadium
    .
    I think DC cancels out Baltimore. Just not sure if they’ll want to put a 4th Northeast city in over Florida and/or the Midwest.
    .
    Unless I’m wrong about Boston…
