And I’m about to make my first trip to Home Depot Center for the first time this year, but frankly it scarcely feels as if I’ve been away given the length of the shortest-ever off-season.
Just in the past four days or so we’ve seen David Beckham pledge his future to the Galaxy and MLS for the next two years, defender A.J. DeLaGarza make his U.S. national team debut in the 1-0 win over Venezuela and Robbie Keane making headlines in England with a two-goal outburst for Aston Villla.
And now the run-up to the MLS 2012 season begins.
Some of you have already asked questions I will seek answers for at what will largely be an inside training session today given the soggy and gloomy weather here in the South Bay.
Any others can be asked either in the comments section here, via Titter @LAsoccerblog or at the 100 Percent Soccer Facebook page.
Armed with a new iPad, I’ll attempt to Tweet, post photos and tape interviews (depending on the HDC wifi in the bowels of the stadium and my level of skill with this new contraption).
And I’ll have more in Tuesday’s column.
