Off to the city of angels
After a short training session this morning, the team will depart for Los Angeles today in preparation for Saturday's match with Chivas USA. The team has a League meeting Friday morning (let's learn about your 401k!) and will train that afternoon at the Home Depot Center.
Saturday's match is set for 10:30 p.m. ET and will be broadcast live on Fox Soccer Channel & Fox Sports en Español. The game can also be heard live on the radio - in english on WFED 1050 AM and on the Spanish Radio Network (1540 AM, 1390 AM, 1600 AM and 1350 AM).
I'll be back with updates and photos throughout the weekend, so keep checking back. Also, in case you missed it, you can now vote for your MLS All-Stars. Without naming names, we think there are several United players worthy of your vote.
UPDATE: We just confirmed that Kevin Payne, our President & CEO, will be on Comcast SportsNet's Washington Post Live this evening at 5:15 p.m. (the show is replayed at 11 p.m., too). He'll discuss the new Volkswagen deal and what it means for the club, as well as his views on the current state of the team. Washington Post Live is hosted by one of our favorites, Russ Thaler, and today will also featuring two well-versed soccer guys, both from the Washington Post - Jason La Canfora and Paul Tenorio.
