Yup, I made it. Sitting in the hotel lobby listening to salsa. I had some extra time because I didn’t end up having to go to a meeting for the reason that I am here.
Check this out…this is the view from right outside where I am.
MLS announced that Dominic Kinnear (no relation to Greg from “Invincible” and that Jack Nicholson movie) is going to coach the MLS All-Stars next month vs. Everton FC.
According to MLS:
“The All-Star coaching honor is awarded to the coach whose team has the best points-per game record through June 28. With one game remaining to play before June 28, the Dynamo’s points per game cannot drop below 1.87 and no other team can reach that average.”
More on Kinnear from the league:
“]As coach of the MLS All-Star team, Kinnear will select a minimum of five players and his coaching and training staff. If players selected for the All-Star First XI are unavailable due to international duty, injury or other commitments, Kinnear may decide on alternates.
The MLS All-Star First XI is scheduled to be announced in mid July. The First XI are determined by online fan balloting comprising 25 percent of the total vote, with MLS coaches and GMs (25 percent), media (25 percent) and players (25 percent) accounting for the remainder. Following the First XI announcement, Kinnear and his staff will select five All-Stars who will join two Commissioner’s selections to complete the MLS 18-man roster. ”
