    I saw another pic ... a Mexican player getting red-carded. No surprise:

    TOTC - but what's a red card in (I presume football) got to do with hockey?

    The rain was outrageous on that first day. Three rain delays mid-match, sticks flying everywhere, bodies sliding... Not fun! It's dried out now and suitably hot. The Internet is extremely sporadic as well, hence the lack of updates on the website (Pan Am and fhumpires.com). Only 7 days to go...

    It looks like they are playing on Field Turf with the rubber pellets. I

    Um.... yeah. Definitely field turf with rubber crumb. Bizarre since there's a field hockey-specific turf in San Juan, but I think the organizers preferred to host the athletes at Camp Santiago (National Guard training base) which is already an hour south of Caguas, which is at least 45min. south of the traffic-riddled capital.

    Now the teams have had a few games on it they've adapted a bit. However, it's a great equalizer for the weaker teams in that it makes receptions a crap shoot (very bouncy) and slows the game down dramatically.

    I'll admit, it does feel good on the knees.

    Keely, are the drag flickers adopting well to the field turf?

    I was lucky to see the Mexican teams (Men & Women) play very recent and they love to use variations on corners, wonder how they are adopting.
    Are teams complaining about the surface? Or they just happy to be there and it's a step up from grass.

    I was a bit surprised by the margin of victory of the Men's semi between TT and NA ( 5-0) for TT. Thought NA would have put up a better fight considering the heavy Dutch influence. But I'm sure happy for the Twin Island. Happy for Kwame and company.

    Both finals should be a screamer.

    They've gotten used to it now, as I said before. Those that drag flick are still doing it, but the straight shots are even more effective because random bounces on the way to the goal makes the save more challenging.

    I think the Mexicans had a step up on the rest because of their grass background, but that gap is closing as the games wear on (see the scoreline in the T&T v MEX women's final).

    As for the AHO men, they are a group of ex-pats mostly who have no competition to play against on Curaco, have only been training together for a few months and are definitely not in the kind of shape the Trinis are. Fitness, especially in hot climates and on a poor surface, is paramount to success.

    We're all hoping that the men's final is more competitive and interesting than the ladies' final was, but I won't be surprised if it isn't. The semis and the bronze medal game are the important ones, as the top 2 + Mexico as hosts for the next games qualify for the Pan Ams. I think it's hard for the teams to get up for the final once they've achieved their main objective in qualifying.
