Waiting for the weekend: Atlantis, Henry, Becks & more

It’s hard to keep track of what and who is allegedly coming or going this morning as we head into the weekend.

Space Shuttle Atlantis will slip the surly bonds of earth one last time, Thierry Henry is supposedly finally heading to MLS if you believe of one of England’s trashiest tabloids, and David Beckham will allegedly accept that assistant coaching role with England and head to South Africa.

While that all gets sorted out we have some games to play this weekend:

*First and foremost is the FA Cup Final between EPL champs Chelsea and bankrupt Portsmouth, a venerable event worth putting on a pot of coffee for to watch live at 7 a.m. on Fox Soccer Channel. Click to the top right for the rest of the weekend’s games on TV.

*Early runaway MLS leaders the Galaxy (7-0-1), who have taken an incredible 22 of a possible 24 points so far this season, take on former Chivas USA coach Preki and Toronto FC Saturday, (a team that is still looking for their first road point this season) at Home Depot Center (7:30 p.m. Prime).

*Chivas USA (3-4-1) are in Columbus facing the unbeaten 3-0-2 Crew at 4:30 p.m. Saturday on Prime. Will highly-paid Sergio Herrera finally get some significant minutes for the Crew?

Stay tuned.
