Chivas doubleheader

If you've got the day free on Friday or are willing to use a sick day, you may want to get out to Home Depot Center. Chivas USA is playing a doubleheader. At 10 a.m., the club is playing UC Riverside and at 11:30, it's up against UC Irvine, I believe. Not sure that the opponents matter, but some of the action might be good to watch. It's going to be cut-down day soon and those fighting for roster spots will likely play their hardest for one last chance to impress.

I unfortunately do not have the day free so I won't be there. I'll be at Monday's training session, the last one before the team leaves for Texas. So if you go out there on Friday you'll have to let me know how it went.

Beating the dead horse here, but my roommate is from San Jose and just as much soccer obsessed as I am.

We were talking shit about Chivas when the subject of Jesus Padilla came up. Shaw (my roommate) says that he played against Padilla in a youth tournament at the U-16/17 level. He says Padilla was a guest player for West Valley Inter as part of that tournament, though he had been part of the club for some time before that.
