Good morning to all the mothers who will be whisked off to a futbol game in a couple of hours, injury-stricken Chivas USA taking on the inconsistent New England Revolution at noon at Home Depot Center.
Chivas USA points out how they’re going to make the game worth mom’s time in their press release:
Mom gets free admission to the game, a complimentary flower (in Chivas colors of Red and White) and a ‘#1 Mom’ Appreciation Certificate upon arrival at the gate. In-stadium, Mary Kay will be on-hand providing complimentary makeovers to all Moms at the popular ChivaTown fan zone, while Donna Karan and Avon will also be distributing complementary perfume and cosmetics samples.
For those who are unable able to bring Mom to the game, Chivas USA’s Official Wireless Provider, Sprint, will give fans the opportunity to ‘Make a Call to Mom on Us’ with special call centers, offering free phone calls within the United States and Mexico, inside the stadium. (Limit one five-minute call per person.)
Meanwhile, on the field, Chivas USA invites Moms to get involved in the action, as a ‘Parade of Moms’ processes around the playing surface before kickoff; ‘Dream Moms’ and ‘High-Five Moms’ accompany the 22 players onto the pitch; and ‘Ball Moms’ keep the soccer action going on corner kicks, throw-ins and goal kicks.
In other local action, the S.F. Quakes surrendered a two-goal lead against the Ventura Fusion Saturday.
In the opening game of a doubleheader, the W-League Pali Blues won their first-ever game 5-0 over the Fusion.
In other local PDL scores Saturday:
Fresno Fuego 2 Southern California Seahorses 1
San Jose Frogs 2 Lancaster Rattlers 0
Los Angeles Legends 0 Bakersfield Brigade 0
Former MLS star Eric Wynalda was subbed out by the Brigade in the scoreless draw.
Meanwhile, the U.S. women went on a tear Saturday against Canada.
Happy Mother’s Day.
