    I'm guessing not many beyond the NY Times, LA Times, Washington Post, etc...

    Did those three send someone? Impressed if they did. With travel cutbacks these days, it's an impressive statement to make by sending a staffer there, even just for semis and finals ...

    Jere Longman was there for the Times, and there was a secondary byline.

    Wow.

    I wonder if there are five US papers over there. I'd be inclined to say USA Today doesn't count.

    L.A. Times is not there.

    Grahame Jones is writing from his couch in ... Ross-on-Wye, England.

    I don't think Grahame Hones is covering Galaxy/Chivas USA as a "beat" writer, either. Is he basically just a once-a-week columnist with occasional special columns for bigger events? It just seems odd that they can't get him a flight across the Channel for the US matches at least.

    The Times should be really embarrassed, if not in Jones, but by its copy desk, when he talks about the "11 women on the field" ... uh, red card? But I've been wondering the same thing. Fly him over or put him in car and send him through the Chunnel. If he's just gonna write everything off TV, well ...
     
  11. I'll say this: Nancy Armour, whom I have great respect for, is doing an excellent job for AP on the U.S. team.

    As an editor, I'd rather have an AP writer on the scene than a "name" writer watching on TV.
