That’s Casa Grande, about an hour south of Phoenix. I won’t be attending that camp but will file any reports I get from it.
So there are two practices at Starfire next week, Monday and Tuesday, then Feb. 3-10, all practices in AZ. There are at least two days where the team will practice twice, similar to the program in Southern California last year at this time. Man that was crazy. I was going all over Ventura County – which was great because I have tons of family there – from Ventura to Santa Paula to Oxnard. And then to Carson for a scrimmage at the Homes Depot Center.
I just can’t call it the Home Depot Center because I’m such a George Lopez fan, and “homes” would be short for “homeboy.”
Nothing definitive on Sounders FC-CONCACAF Champions League tournament game or games moving from Starfire to Qwest, but it is being evaluated.
That weekend off for the players? Not for everyone. Read this quote from Sigi Schmid today.
“We know who needs special programs, who needs to do some supplemental stuff. There’s probably a group of about six guys who will be in tomorrow to do some extra work. They’re not going to get two days off like the rest of the guys because they’re behind the eight ball a little bit fitness wise. So we’re trying to bring that group up and keep that other group where it is.”
