It's nearly time for the start of the International Champions Cup game between AC Milan from Italy's Serie A and Chelsea from the English Premier League.

But who are we kidding? The real star tonight is, of course. . .as you can judge from the table above. . .U.S. BANK STADIUM~! Yes, the new home of the Minnesota Vikings is hosting its first sporting event this evening, and we finally get an opportunity to see what it looks like. Organizers are apparently expecting more than 55,000 people to attend this evening's contest, which will blow away the attendance record for a soccer match in the state of Minnesota.

Now, since this game is going to get underway at about 3:00 AM Thursday morning where I am, I'm going to have to wait for highlights, but this is for everyone that gets to watch things live on ESPN2. Tell us what you think about the stadium, whether or not the announcers talked about it, or anything else. . .and if the game happens to get in the way, that's alright too, I suppose.

Enjoy the stadium. . .er, game, ladies and gentlemen!
