8 p.m. Galaxy-D.C. United at Home Depot Center (live on Fox Soccer Channel).
The blog is essentially on hiatus, but in an effort to keep it ticking over in my absence:
*Read Phil Collins’ game notes.
Tonight is Military Appreciation Night, which means those serving in the armed forces get 50 percent off tickets here.
From the Galaxy press release:
Prior to the start of the game, each branch of the United States Armed Forces — U.S. Air Force, U.S Army, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Marines and U.S. Navy– will be recognized. Additionally, 30 recruits from the Air Force will take their Oath of Enrollment prior to the game on main field of The Home Depot Center.
Furthermore, the 1st Marine Division Band, based out of Camp Pendleton in Oceanside , Calif. , will perform at the top of the Main Entrance from 7-7:20 p.m. as well as the National Anthem prior to kickoff.
Hopefully, if this sort of recognition is repeated next year the Galaxy can coordinate things better with the annual Torrance Armed Forces Day parade that was held last month and is the only Pentagon-sanctioned event in the nation.
