The road to the 2014 World Cup continues tonight in Kingston as the all-important USA vs. Jamaica match is bound to have us riveted. Well, at least if you're able to watch it.
Time: 8:00 PM
TV Options: The game will be broadcast on the new BeIN Sport channel, which you probably don't get. Unless you have DirecTV (channel 620) or DISH (channel 408). If you have Comcast, then beIN was recently added to the Spanish tier of channels (channel 583 for me in Maryland). So here's my advice: 1) Call Comcast now and say that you'd like to add the Spanish sports package. 2) Watch the match. 3) Call Comcast tomorrow and say that you'd like to cancel the Spanish sports package.
There will surely be illegal feeds popping up, but SBN policy is to not allow them to be posted in the comments. If you are looking to share or inquire about such things, please do so elsewhere.
Projected starting lineup: Since the United States are likely to be missing two of its four most important players in Landon Donovan and Michael Bradley, with a third in Clint Dempsey still regaining fitness. With so many question markups, I'll throw it to the experts and just echo the lineup that SB Nation's new USMNT blog Stars And Stripes FC is predicting. That would include Jozy Altidore as the lone striker ahead of Brek Shea, Dempsey, and Danny Williams on the attacking end of the midfield. Jermaine Jones and Kyle Beckerman are likely to be behind them, with Fabian Johnson, Carlos Bocanegra, Geoff Cameron, and Steve Cherundolo in defense. Tim Howard will of course start in goal.
Prediction: The U.S. has never won in Jamaica (they're 0-0-4), but this U.S. team is used to ending such streaks. I'm predicting a 2-1 win for the Americans.
What are you drinking? Remember, American beverages only for all USMNT matches. Get that Red Stripe the eff outta here. I'll be drinking the last of my Leinenkugel Summer Shandy before I make the leap to the fall beers.
