Tomorrow is the end of the CONCACAF Gold Cup. As everybody expected at the beginning of the tournament the match will be between the USA and Mexico. It's going to be a very gritty, high intensity match that few will want to miss. Unfortunately, the soccer gods that be have decided to broadcast both the Portland Timbers vs. FC Dallas match and the Gold Cup final at nearly the same time, which proposes a problem for many of us. Any suggestions?
Enjoy the morning news.
