While many are of the “any point earned on the road is a good point” perspective, even they must be quite upset. To lose a lead with seconds to go, our Goats basically reenacted the Women’s World Cup from earlier in the day, playing the role of the Brazilian national team. Fortunately for the Goats, there would be no PK’s to sink them. In the rear view mirror now, the Goats return to the HDC to take on the Eastern Conference leading New York Red Bulls and their all star cast this Saturday at 7:30. Get your tickets now, a large walk up is expected.
With all that said, time to get back to speculating where the Goats new stadium will one day stand. Click here to look other speculative locations.
No need to worry lovers of the county fair. Have you seen the size of the parking lots there? You could fit an NFL sized stadium there. Sure, it’s a little off the beaten path so to speak, but the possibilities are endless. And while many would say the team would be too far from Los Angeles to begin with, there would still be a whole new demo to go after known as the Inland Empire. The 14th largest metropolitan area in United States according to the 2000 census. Sure, there is a Racetrack and Raceway in the way. It’s nothing a demolition crew can’t handle. And if for some reason the Racetrack nor Raceway are expendable, then the parking lot on the eastern portion of the Fairplex can do the trick.
With the 10, 210, and 57 (anyone feel like going swimming or is it just me?) all meeting in and around the area, getting there shouldn’t be a problem for those traveling from other parts of Southern California. And lastly, there is a Metrolink station less than two miles away. For those choosing not to drive to “Corona Stadium at the Fairplex”, the Goats FO can either arrange for shuttle services to and from the North Pomona station, or fans can strap on their best walking shoes and hit the pavement. A little cardio before and after the match shouldn’t hurt.
