US National's to play Honduras in Cary, NC?

A great hat tip to reader Jarrett of TriSoccerFan blog for catching a great nugget by Chris Economides on the Kick This! Soccer Show out of Rochester, NY. It seems that the new majority owner of the USL Cary soccer team let it slip that the US will be playing Honduras in Cary come April. He said that we should expect a major announcement from US Soccer soon (this is at about the 10 minute point in the show - link is to a windows media player file).

The stadium in Cary seats about 7,000, so this would be a big thing to pull off for the city and the new USL franchise. Something else Economides goes on to talk about is the support of the local elected officials in making everything happen. If Cary keeps on this path they might soon be able to claim the title of 'Soccer Capital of the US.'

You can read more about why this event will not take place in Alabama as originally planned here.

Update: I want to stress that Jarrett of TriSoccerFan is not saying that this will happen, but Chris Economides does make it sound very likely in the interview.

I want to warn every one that this is pure speculation on my part:

Update 2: I'm officially moving this from speculation to real possibility at this point. Stay tuned!
