MIDSUMMER CLASSIC?: In N.Y., George Vecsey noted summer exhibition matches in the U.S. featuring European football clubs are "fast becoming a midsummer ritual." It is "hard to take a midsummer soccer match seriously when the lads have just come back from those brief vacations from a sport that grinds bodies and minds down to nubs." But data from SeatGeek indicated that tickets "were going for an average of $110, with seats atop the scoreboard going for more than $400 and standing room at $70."
