Greetings from Terminal B

If you are wondering where the posts have been today, you can blame it on preparations for my next trip.

SBI is headed to Salzburg, Austria for Red Bulls training camp. I will be spending a week in the land of Schwarzanegger and energy drinks. This will mark the third trip of the young year for SBI. If you enjoyed SBI’s coverage from the MLS Combine in Florida, and the US-Mexico friendly in Houston, then get ready for some coverage from Europe.

I’m not sure how frequent the posting will be–internet access will determine that–but you can rest assured that I will be bringing you an in-depth look at how Juan Carlos Osorio’s reconstruction project is going.

There will be a Red Bull doubleheader on Saturday with RBNY playing the Salzburg reserves at the Salzburg stadium before Red Bull Salzburg plays its own league match. Sunday will include a trip to Germany for an 1860 Munich match, a trip that will allow me to catch up with New Jersey native and U.S. World Cup veteran Gregg Berhalter as well as felow World Cup vet Josh Wolff.

Don’t fret non-Red Bulls fans, the SBI hotline will still be open to my sources so I will look to bring you other MLS news as the week moves along.

My flight isn’t for another few hours so I will be setting up a few posts for Friday morning. I should also have a You Write the Caption shortly so stay tuned for that.

Feel free to discuss any other news that took place today in the comments section below.

    Have fun in Salzburg Ives. It is an absolutely beautiful setting and you should be sure to take a day trip out to the Lake District and maybe visit a place like Hallstatt if you have the time. Austria is definitely one of my favorite places in the world to visit. Enjoy.

    I thought Thailand would have been the land of energy drinks.

  7. Adam says:

    Gute Reise!

  8. Jerry says:

    Must be nice Ives, nice to see your dedication and hardwork following up in NYRB, would be nice if we could actually get an interview from any of the NYRB coaching staff or players have a safe and good time

  9. Fuego Fanatico says:

    Gregg Berhalter could help out that RBNY back line – any chance the Red Bull tries to bring him back to the states?

    I am jealous Ives…I lived in Salzburg.

    A fun pub is the Schwaresroessel off of Priesterhaus Gasse. After a few beers in the evening, if you go to the Altermarkt Platz, there is a sausage stand. Get a Kasekrainer mit scharfes senf.

    And make sure you enjoy a fresh semmel in the morning.

    Now…I am hungry as well as jealous.

    Make sure to hit the Augusteiner (sp?) Brewery Beer Garden. Excellent beer great atmosphere and great chow.

  12. Garret says:

    Great news. Thanks for the dedication. Have a safe trip.

  13. Jim says:


    It would be great if you could learn about the relationship between the NY and Austrian clubs, if there is any. It would be smart if they exchanged training programs, developmental players or anything. I assume this is being done at some level but you never know.

    Also would like your impressions of their stadium and any design elements to be shared with Red Bull Park.

  14. Joamiq says:

    A-HA. I had a feeling that’s where you were headed. Looking forward to the news and analysis. Thanks for doing this!

  15. Chuck says:

    Will you see Nate Jaqua play?

  16. Mark says:

    Ives, when you get back to the US and your site is skinned in Red Bull banners and you’re telling us that Red Bull has done extremely well financially the two years they’ve owned the club we’ll know the Austrian overlords have gotten to you.

    Have a great trip!

  17. erik says:

    hey ives,

    have fun. berhalter looked pretty good in against bayern yesterday…does he plan on coming back to the states anytime soon? as fuego fanatico said, we could sure use the help in the back.



  18. Trex says:

    Ives, that’s awesome! I hope your trip is great.

    I’d echo Jim in being interested in your thoughts on their stadium and what similarities it may have with Red Bull Park.

    Thanks for all the insight and news.

  19. Dominghosa says:

    Awesome stuff, meng. Have a safe trip, good luck, and have fun.
    Good to see SBI take another great step.

  20. Have a great trip REPORTER OF THE PEOPLE!


  21. Javier says:

    this is fantastic news…have a safe trip Ives, and enjoy yourself.

    i have to ask though…i thought RBNY HQ wasn’t your biggest fan? if that’s still true, were/are there any obstacles presented as far as this trip goes?

  22. David Berger says:

    AWESOME! Have fun dude.

  23. kpugs says:

    Have fun my friend, SBI is really following through on big time coverage, going global.

  24. SomewhatBitterFireFan says:

    Salzburg (and the rest of austria, for that matter) if beautiful. Take advantage of the opportunity! … and give JCO a swift kick in the gems when you have a chance.
