Adu will be playing against the best in Portugal rather than the best in Major League Soccer, which will make him better prepared to lead the U.S. national team in the future.


1. It’s too hot. There isn’t an ounce of shade available for anybody watching, save the two police officers standing in the south end zone.

2. There’s nowhere to sit. There are no bleachers available, so arrive early to avoid looking at the back of somebody’s head.

3. Nothing much happens. Joe Gibbs isn’t a big believer in heavy contact during training camp, so don’t expect any big hits by the defense.

4. Autographs are tough to get. Because of where the fans stand, players have to go out of their way to sign for the non-VIP types.

5. It’s too expensive. Admission and parking are free, but it’s $4 for a hot dog and $3 for a bottle of water. Head to the swimming pool or movies instead.
