I missed the announcement during the MLS Cup broadcast, but apparently DC United is opening the 2005 season at HDC against CD Chivas USA on April 2. Mark your calendars ... I'm quite sure I'll try to organize a group ticket purchase for this match. Hopefully we'll get the usual LA contingent and more than a few travelling supporters. Look for an announcement about that in ... oh, I don't know. When do they start selling tickets?
