Weather for Wednesday in Honduras: a doggone scorcher

Two important U.S. World Cup qualifier talking points that may be slipping by everyone as we kick and fuss over Benny Feilhaber, Jose Torres, Jermaine Jones, etc. … you know, and all the other usual suspects in the spin cycle of U.S. Soccer debate:

It’s going to be hot. And humid.

Forecasts for San Pedro Sula, Honduras, on Wednesday call for temperatures in the high 80s with a chance of showers. Meanwhile, today finds the nation’s second largest city at 70 percent humidity, which is pretty much Houston- or New Orleans-type icky-ness.

When is the last time Clint Dempsey, Michael Bradley, Jermaine Jones, Fabian Johnson, Timmy Chandler and several others who earn a living in Europe found themselves on the business end of a unholy heat-humidity union like that one? They could struggle.

By the way, kickoff for this one is not under the lights, when the evening cool could tame the temps a little. Which brings us to Point No. 2 that may be escaping folks at the moment:

Starting whistle Wednesday is 4 p.m. ET (live on beIN Sports). Yes, an afternoon kick.

So start setting up your Wednesday bug-out now.

Why, is that a cough I hear from you? I do believe you might be coming down with something.

    Yeah I have the “no bars around here have beIN” flu.

      Yeah…I don’t get to watch either. No Bein here or pretty much anywhere. BeOut more like it. I do, however, get to watch Mexico….try to explain that one to your friends.

      Dish Network carries BeIN Sport HD on its Top 250 package which I have at home… I can’t believe there isn’t a bar or friend near you that carries it.

    “BeIN” left on the dark is what we are…..so much for growing the USMNT presence thst this does not help improve at all. Bummer!
