My USMNT caps

I used to go to the Home Depot Center game held after January camp every year, but to my shame, I was absent in '09, '10, '11.  Then they didn't play Jan games in Carson in '12 and '13.  (I'm still not sure if I was at the Jan 2004 game vs Denmark.  I definitely was at the 2003 MLS allstar game, which Donovan, Beasley, Bocanegra, Mathis and Hejduk played in).  I vow to take my kids to every US Soccer game held within LA county from now on.  To preserve my own memories, I'm listing my caps.
