LONDON – I thought I had made my only life visit to Manchester when I travelled in and out of there to cover The Open Championship at Royal Lytham & St. Annes before the Olympic Games got underway.
Now I’m heading back there this morning on the train to cover the Canada-USA semifinal in women’s soccer and I’m pumped.
One of the stars of the game is going to Old Trafford, the iconic home of Manchester United.
I was having breakfast with colleague Steve Buffery this morning and he was telling me he went on a tour of Old Trafford when he was here for the Commonwealth Games a few years ago.
He said some of the people on the tour were crying when they had a chance to visit a place they had only seen on TV.
I’ve never been a big soccer guy – I pretty much only pay attention to the big world events – but having a chance to visit a stadium like Old Trafford will be a treat.
What would be the sporting venue you would want to visit?
