We've arrived in Kansas City. 19 players, three coaches, one general manager, one trainer, one team administrator, one equipment manager and one communications guy. Fred loves flying.
Upon arriving at the hotel, most players went to grab a late lunch. While heading for food, Marcelo Gallardo randomly ran into fellow countrymen (and fellow designated player) Claudio Lopez and family. The two seemed genuinely happy to see each other and exchanged a few words (of which I could understand very little). Of course, Marcelo and Claudio spent a number of years competing together on the Argentine National Team, including a couple of World Cups. The two may very well meet for the first time as members of MLS at tomorrow's game.
