A couple of items to pass along while I watch the DirecTV UEFA Champions League mix (eight games at once!) here at work:
*The new local USL Pro team regular blog readers read about earlier here that will play at Titan Stadium has apparently taken the lead from the inelegantly named Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and will call itself the LA Blues, despite playing most of its games in Orange County. Go figure. Details here.
Let’s hope the picture at that link is not some sort of omen of things to come in terms of drawing a crowd, incidentally.
The Division 3 team is throwing itself a “pep rally” next Tuesday.
*Chivas USA, looking to stun MLS with a daring, innovative choice for its new coach that will make a huge media splash and have excited fans scooping up season tickets is today reportedly interviewing (wait for it) – former Chicago Fire coach Dennis Hamlett.
A real inspirational ball of fire is Denny, BTW.
