I went last night to RFK to see the highest level soccer match I've ever witnessed.  It was a double header in the Gold Cup, which is a tournament between central and north american teams.  First match was Haiti vs. Grenada.  Haiti prevailed 2-0.   The headliner game was USA vs. Honduras, with the same score as the result, USA getting the win. 

There were only 26,000 or so fans, but it was a fantastic atmosphere.  It was hard to tell who the crowd supported more, as Honduras were very well represented.  The first U.S. goal was could see the play developing for a while and the payoff was gratifying.  The second goal was quicker, and sealed the game.

Traffic getting out wasn't bad because the average passengers per car was eight.
