Simmering Chicago Fire Hot For MLS Opener with Galaxy Sunday in Carson

Hoping to build on their best season in more than a decade, the Chicago Fire will come into Home Depot Center Sunday against the LA Galaxy with an experienced and revamped midfield.

Questions remain for the Fire at right back, however.

Incidentally, if you’re planning on watching the 2 p.m. Sunday game, be aware Univision has switched it to the UniMas channel, which isn’t distributed as widely. Check with your TV provider.

However, Time Warner Cable announced today that it has picked up the game for English language viewers.

Its broadcast team this year is former Earthquakes play-by-play man John Schrader and former Galaxy winger Cobi Jones, who will allegedly provide the color commentary.

I say allegedly because Jones isn’t particularly colorful and is more than deferential to his former employer. And if continues to says “offsides” when he really means just one offside I will metaphorically reach into the TV and rip out his vocal cords (or something like that).
