THEY HAVE LIFT-OFF: In Houston, Glenn Davis writes the city’s selection “caps a remarkable 20 months of international soccer for Houston and Reliant Stadium,” which hosted several games involving national teams from the U.S. and Mexico as well as top pro clubs during that period (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 1/27). In Boston, Frank Dell’Apa notes that the event has “never been conducted in more than three cities” (BOSTON GLOBE, 1/27).
