The Week Ahead

Just so we’re all keeping track:

Tuesday
SuperLiga – Chivas USA at Chicago Fire 5 p.m. on TeleFutura in the second game of the tournament. Chivas USA were outplayed 2-1 game at Home Depot Center against Tigres last weekend. Chivas USA striker Eduardo Lillingston is suspended after his red card. Chicago beat San Luis 1-0 last weekend on a Brian McBride goal. A game preview from a Chicago perspective is here.

Wednesday
Confederations Cup Semifinal – U.S.-Spain 11:25 a.m. ESPN. No. 1 ranked Spain, undefeated in 35 games and on a 15-game winning streak. Ulp. Defender Carlos Bocanegro remains “questionable.” Absolutely useless factoid from U.S. Soccer: Michael Bradley’s goal against Egypt was the sixth of his career; that matches the total scored by Bert Patenaude. He had six goals in four appearances back in 1930, according to my MNT media guide; Bradley has played more than 25 games. Get your finger out, lad!

WPS – Sol (8-1-4) at St. Louis Athletica (4-4-2). The Sol are unbeaten in eight games, a sequence stretching back to May 2; Athletica have yet to score on the Sol in two games this season, a scoreless draw and a 2-0 loss at the HDC in April.

Thursday
Confederations Cup semifinal – Brazil-South Africa 11:25 a.m. ESPN.

Saturday
WPS – Chicago Red Stars at Sol at 10 a.m. (!) at Home Depot Center. Deal of the week to soften the early hour: two tix, a Marta bobblehead and $50 ESPN Zone gamecard for $29.99. Call 1-877-4-SOLTIX. Quality bobblehead, BTW.

SuperLiga – Chivas USA -San Luis 7 p.m. at Home Depot Center.

Sunday
MLS – Best reason to attend the 7 p.m. Galaxy-Dynamo game at the HDC: $1 beers and $1 hot dogs before the game. Also, the first 10,000 fans get a free Galaxy Sinch Sack; the first 7,500 a free Galaxy Car Flag. The Dynamo are first in the West with an MLS-best 28 points; the Galaxy lost last time out to struggling San Jose. I’ll have another hot dog, please. Weird fact: the Galaxy’s current two-game losing streak is just the second in Bruce Arena’s tenure with the Galaxy. … Notable: Van Nuys’ Tristan Bowen, the first player in MLS history to be signed by a club through the league’s youth development initiative, made his MLS debut Saturday. The 18-year old forward is the fourth youngest player to ever play a game for the Galaxy; younger were Izzy Sesay, Memo Gonzalez and Quavas Kirk. Not good company.

    “Sunday

    Nick you’re wrong again about the gaLAxy with above suggestion. If it goes like last time, even another loss will digest better than the 45 minute wait for 2 stale dogs (not very hot and most likely made from dog meat) and 1 drink maximum per person from one location only. Better off stopping by Ikea or 7-11 for their cheap offerings before the game.
