Weekend TV Listings

I'll be tied up much of the day working on a lengthy Louis Crayton story before heading out of town on a college basketball assignment. Unless something urgent surfaces, I probably won't join you again until tomorrow.

Just to keep you updated on MLS matters we've been following long before anyone else, the league is finalizing a contract for Seattle to host MLS Cup -- an angle that first broke here two months ago -- and is putting the finishing touches on a delicate deal for Valencia to be the All-Star Game opponent in Salt Lake City, which you read about here exclusively a few days ago. As we told you yesterday, barring last-minute complications, formal announcements are set on both fronts next week.

Don't forget to sign up for Insider alerts on Twitter. I've been encouraged by the response after just a few days of use and am eager to keep building this first-alert forum before the MLS season commences.

Sunday's Santos-Cruz Azul could be a CONCACAF preview. But I hope not!

I saw a story about Beckham on AOL Sports UK. It was interesting.

Lots of FA Cup for me this weekend - though I should be dragging my a$$ to the gym!

Steve, do you know what's going on with the MLSLive.tv this season? Any truth to the rumor it will be free?

I'm already having a tough time figuring out what I'm going to do on March 28th, I don't have a TIVO. I really want to go to the home opener, but I'd maybe stay home if I could watch online, and then kick back and watch US/ES...
What the heck is everyone else gonna do? Will Summer's be showing both matches? What other bars in DC/and or Arlington would be showing both?
Thanks

Interesting "post-Beckham" analysis piece from the Beeb today, mainly on Becks' impact on the league during his short stay.

"That said, the numbers watching MLS on American television were still extremely modest. An average of 253,000 people watched live matches on ESPN in 2008, which was comparable with the viewing figures for women's basketball."

And one more.

I'm really hoping United shows the US/ES game on the jumbotron after the United game ....... but I have not heard that is the case.
I would assume either the Screaming Eagles, the Barra Brava, or both, will try to hook up a TV for the after-game tailgate - we did a few times last year.

Is it just me, or does Twitter seem to be a less technological, lesser content version of an AOL chat?

The first Saturday in months that I'm not taking my son to soccer in the morning and what do I get? Coventry-Chelsea at 7:30 A-freakin'-M. Why Soccer Gods? WHY!
