It is game time! Chivas USA have crossed multiple time zones to take on the Columbus Crew today (4:30 pm PDT, Prime Ticket). Both teams are on losing streaks, although Chivas' is worse, and both sides will be eager to get a rare midweek victory. Which team will emerge? Will the game end in a draw? Will Chivas give their fans any reason to be happy in September? All that will be revealed shortly.
If you missed it, be sure to check out the match preview from this morning.
I'll be providing the basic play-by-play and commentary during the match, if you can't watch it live (assuming I can find a...source). If you are watching it, or even if you aren't feel free to add in your two cents during and after the game!
