It's time for the game! Chivas USA finish their road trip with their first and only match against D.C. United (4 pm PDT, Galavision). Chivas are on a losing streak that Chivatown hopes will end now, and D.C. has won their last couple matches after losing star Dwayne De Rosario to a knee injury. Chivas don't have the injuries to worry about, but they have two suspended players: Oswaldo Minda, for his now-patented yellow card accumulation, and James Riley, for a phantom red card that I've yet to see explained. So if the Goats get a result, it's got to be without two key players.
I'll be covering basic plays and commentary as usual, so feel free to join in the discussion!
