WELCOME TO 2008



The first training session of 2008 is in the books, and the prominent storyline of the morning: it’s COLD. This is Southern California! It’s supposed to be paradise… but perhaps not today. Armed with sweatshirts, jackets and pants, 25 players took to the field for training, which consisted of some fitness, a seven on seven game, and some small ball work exercises. For those keeping score, meaning you read our releases, there should be 26 players in camp, and there will be once Brad Guzan arrives in a couple days. After training, a few journalists were on hand to talk to some of the players and coaches. We’ll have a podcast or two from that coming up later this afternoon. Now back at the hotel, the guys are heading off to the lunchroom, where there is hopefully some hot soup on hand. Brrr! Like the group, we are just warming up for the first MNT blog of 2008. We have lots in store, so stay tuned …

Any clues as to why Guzan is coming in late? Personal reasons or is a transfer or something in the works?

Is Pierre back? It looks like him in the first picture.
