I just got an email from a friend of mine who is a CFC season ticket holder and CFC supporter. He linked me to an AP news story just now with the following. English Premier League champion Chelsea will play in the Major League Soccer All-Star game on Aug. 5, the third foreign team to play in the midseason exhibition in four years. The match was originally scheduled for July 29 but will be pushed back a week to accommodate English league player union rules that require a 30-day break between the World Cup and the start of club training. The World Cup in Germany runs June 9-July 9. Four MLS games originally scheduled for Aug. 5 will be moved to the weekend of July 29. The New England Revolution-Chivas USA game scheduled for Aug. 6 will remain as scheduled in Los Angeles so it can be part of a doubleheader involving Spanish league champion Barcelona. This is perfect. The game is on my birthday, and I will likely have front row seats. Who else is excited?
