Didn't get to this last week but my SI.com editor Jonah Freedman wrote this column about his trip down to HDC a week ago. Jonah lives in Northern California, not something I envy too much. It's not that I've got a bias against Northern California necessarily, though as an LA Dodgers fan I have nothing but contempt for those chumps in orange and black. But the wind and the chilly weather would be enough for me to stay away from NoCal.
Anyway, one interesting note that Jonah mentions is the possibility of Benny Feilhaber joining Chivas USA. Jonah says in the story that there is an outside possibility but one nevertheless. Feilhaber to Chivas USA would be nothing short of a coup and would really catapult the club to frontrunner status in the West. Still, I think that in order to get him Chivas would have to clear someone from their senior roster, which is pretty stacked as it is.
Jonah was at the Red Bulls-Chivas game on Tuesday and got lucky when he was one of six print reporters to talk to David Beckham on Thursday. I haven't seen any less than 10 or so but there weren't too many scribes out there for Becks.
