Apparently, There's More

What the …?! Oh, come on. More? Geez. OK, fine. But only because the Rangers are done, preseason real football isn't here yet and the Guinness International Champion Cup tournament has the word “Guinness” in its name. That always gets attention. Anyway, it's AS Roma vs. Real Madrid, which are teams from Europe that will play one another as part of a multi-city … nope. Can't do it. Don't care. Look, it's soccer, and if you like it, you know enough about this game to want to see it. Thousands of people — even in the United States — apparently do care, since this tournament has doubled in size in the U.S. since it started in 2013. Or maybe it's just the beer, which is very good and isn't even made in America. The match begins at 8:15 p.m. at The Cotton Bowl. Tickets range from $40 to $100, plus taxes and hefty “convenience fees.” Find them at
