I’ve been under the weather the past couple of days, so unless I hear of something major going on in the next hour or so I’m planning to skip Tuesday’s column and crawl back into bed.
But here’s a couple of quick updates to get your week under way:
*Chivas USA defender Ante Jazic played 90 minutes Sunday as Canada lost 1-0 to Jamaica.
*Chivas USA will scrimmage against the PDL’s Ventura County Fusion at 11 a.m. Tuesday on field 6 at Home Depot Center and scrimmage again at 11 a.m. Thursday in Carson against LMU.
*The Galaxy’s new Brazilian trio have joined preseason training.
*And here’s your deal o’ the day – both the Galaxy and Chivas USA are offering ticket specials that went on sale today in conjunction with the March 3 Mexico-New Zealand game at the Rose Bowl that’s part of Mexico’s six-game pre-World Cup tour in the U.S. between Feb. 24 and May 13. (Mexico also plays Bolivia Feb. 24 in San Francisco, the road trip inclined should know).
For $30, Chivas USA fans can purchase a general admission seat for both the Mexico match and Chivas USA’s Home Opener on March 26 against the Colorado Rapids.
For $75, fans receive a midfield seat to the Mexico-New Zealand game as well as sideline seats for the first two Chivas USA home games of the season.
Galaxy fans have a similar choice.
For $30 fans get GA seats for the Mexico game and the Galaxy’s March 27 season opener at the HDC against the New England Revolution OR the April 1 SuperClasico against Chivas USA, while $75 gets you the same choice of games, but with sideline seats.
For the Chivas USA offer call 1-877-CHIVAS-1; for the Galaxy offer call1-877-3GALAXY.
