I am finally back in the US (currently typing this in a hotel room in Houston) with functioning internet. One more flight tonight and I will finally be back in Los Angeles and the site will get back to its regularly schedule programming later this week. Thanks once again to RJ for holding things down while I was gone.
It was a fun trip. I got to see the US play in a World Cup game in person. I got to see John Brooks score that winner. I got to see Luis Suarez bite someone. I got to spend too much time trying to sleep on the floor of the Manaus airport. I got to see the movie The Big Year three times more than anyone really needs to. I met some great new friends on this trip.
I will post some photos and tell some more details of the trip later this week.
