    wait a minute Wait a minute WAIT A MINUTE!!!

    Foxboro Stadium hosted a freakin' World Cup?! I never knew that. And from what I've heard about the place, it was barely adequate for the NFL.

    I never went to the old Fox (I had tickets for a game there in 2001 but didn't go, I'll tell you about that some other time) but when I tell other Pats fans I wish I could have gotten there at least once, they usually look at me like I'm crazy and say, "Trust me, you didn't miss anything."

    Disable Jersey

    The perks were almost non-existent, but the prices were much more reasonable, the tailgating was great and the crowd was generally into the games.

    #18 Jersey

    World Cups are granted to a country, and then games are played in stadiums throughout the country. The 1994 World Cup was played in Foxboro, but also at the Rose Bowl, Meadowlands, Cotton Bowl, Soldier Field, Citrus Bowl, RFK in DC, the Silverdome, and Stanford Stadium.

    If the US was to win a bid for a World Cup in 2018, the list of venues would probably be similar, and would doubtlessly include Gilette.

    Don't try to be reasonable about this, the truth is it's a plan by that evil Bob Kraft to make money off those poor deluded soccer fans. :mad:

    I thought there was a marathon thingy that used one or two streets? Doesn't that count as a road race then?

    Different layout and longer shutdowns for the auto race...plan never really got off the ground but they were planning it in case the city ever wanted to host one.

    If not Vollmer will personally tutor you, but you have to hold the blocking bag for him so he can keep working while he's hitting you. :cool:
