Someone correct me but I thought FedEx wasn't in the bid. It was Baltimore (Ravens stadium).

correct, but they knew Fedex Field would not make the grade so it wasn't considered

Nope. They dropped when they saw the writing on the wall…

I think the final bid was “DC/Baltimore” and some events would have been held in DC with all of the matches being played in the Ravens stadium. I think part of the bid was increased transit between DC and Baltimore for the duration of the Cup.

True, but they were also trying to prevent an international soccer star from being murdered by a squeegee boy.

As long as they don’t attack them first with a bat they’d be fine. Thousands of other are. And that was well after. Not to worry tho, they could just be murder waiting for metro or in Columbia Heights
