Far from home: Chivas USA train in stunning Central California (Photo courtesy Chivas USA).
Chivas USA is training this week in the bucolic surroundings of the Central Coast community of Templeton.
In their honor I cracked an excellent Zinfandel from Castoro Cellers this evening paired with a skinless chicken breast and mushroom risotto.
What else gets better with age?
Former Galaxy striker Alejandro Moreno. Yummy.
Update to the update (really)
*Mexican veterans Joaqun Beltrn, 33, and goalkeeper Dmitri Gonzalez are no longer in camp with the team.
*However, both CD Guadalajara goalkeeper Sergio Arias, 22, and former Chivas USA favorite Panchito Mendoza continue to attempt to earn MLS contracts.
*Neither striker Justin Braun nor goalkeeper Dan Kennedy are in camp. Both are recovering from injury. Braun sustained an injury during the recent USMNT camp at Home Depot Center; Kennedy is recovering from off-season surgery.
