RWC Qualifier Second Leg: Made it to Atlanta

Well I just got into Atlanta after taking the redeye from Los Angeles to the capital of Georgia. My buddy Tom Daniels and I have tickets to see Saturday's game between the USA and Uruguay and a winner take all match. Last weekend the Yanks came from 19 to 6 down To actually go ahead of the Teros, but then Uriguay tied the game at the end and a 27 to 27 draw. The worrying thing for the USA Eagles, is that their scrum had all kinds of problems last Saturday-and the forecast for this Saturday in Atlanta is for rain, which will negate the one advantage the Eagles have over Uruguay is speed. Bad weather also tends to level the playing field, which is someyhing that the Teros won't mind.

That said, I'm glad to be here in Atlanta. Aside from being at the airport and a waffle house, i've never seen anything here. So Tom and I got you a couple of days early, so we could check some things out. Crossing my fingers that everything comes out okay on Saturday's match.  I still plan on going to next years rugby World Cup in England, but if the Eagles were to somehow not qualify, it's obviously going to make a big change my itinerary. I guess that I will know more in a couple of days.
