Chivas USA sent out a release on Wednesday inviting media out there for the club's Media Day. I think it's a good idea but it's about two weeks too late for me. I would have enjoyed this day had it been a couple of weeks ago when I had season previews for MLSnet.com and the Press-Enterprise to write but I can't go out there today especially when there is a game tonight. I'm not going to spend the entire day out there.
One of the things the release touted was the club's training session and invited media to take in the training session before the team was made available for interviews.
Anyway, a reporter friend called me to fill me in on the morning. Seems like Preki closed the practice, so there are apparently 10-20 reporters out there unable to watch the practice they were told they could watch. Nice.
I hope the rest of the event goes better than that.
UPDATE: Apparently the rest of the day went off without a hitch. The scribes were let down to the field to watch the last portion of training and the players and coaches were available at length from what I understand.
The timing may not have worked out for me but oh well. I would have liked to have gone but it's difficult to go out to Carson twice in one day. I'll catch the guys on Saturday.
