It is time for the game! Chivas USA hosts FC Dallas in each team's second match of the season, and it will be the next opportunity for Chivas to get their first points of 2013 (2 pm PST, UniMas). Both teams are works in progress, and it will be interesting to see if either can show improvement in this game. Obviously, for Chivas' fans, the hope is that the Goats will look better this afternoon. We'll have to wait, but not long, to find out!
I'll be here providing the usual basic play-by-play and commentary in the comments section below. Feel free to jump in the discussion!
