MLS Saturday Soccer: Galaxy face Dallas in Carson, Chivas USA in Colorado against Rapids

In a mirror image of last weekend’s MLS games involving local teams last week’s game-saver, penalty kick stopping goalkeeper Josh Saunders, and the Galaxy face Dallas at the Home Depot Center (live at 7:30 p.m. on KDOC), while Chivas USA hope to emulate their intracity rival’s accomplishment by beating the Colorado Rapids at home (live at 6 p.m. on Prime and KWHY), while notching a fourth successive victory on the road this season.

After being forced to open the club wallet in the wake of last week’s rough outing against the Philadelphia Union, Chivas USA will hope events on the field overshadow those off it, although the club will again miss veteran striker Alejandro Moreno, who has added a concussion to the two broken noses he has already suffered this season.

Here’s a Chivas USA video preview:

    Thanks for noticing.

    A couple of things are going on.

    First, we’re trying new things and it appears more people live tweet and communicate with each other more that way than via live blogs.

    I’ve also tried things like the Storify software as an alternative to blogging during games.

    Frankly, I was writing so much I was missing half the game, so I’m trying to cut back on how much I have my head down during the game.

    Finally, I’m getting burned out on blogging in my free time (I don’t get paid to attend games if you can believe it) so I’m trying to cut back on the amount of work I perform for free.

    BTW, again, thank you for noticing. You are the only person to provide feedback so far.

    I’d be interested in learning how most people follow live games: blogs, Tweets, or game commentary like those on MLSSocer.com where fans can provide comments.

    Tks.
