    Way to throw the coffin into the party room. This will be the most anticlimactic announcement ever if it is just to announce that RioT is hosting a Gold Cup game. They announced that on the website yesterday.

    I knew it! Beside the announcement of Toni and Gattuso, they are going to rename the stadium Rio Tinto Stadio degli Alpi and our new jersey sponsor is going to be Xango/Fiat!

    Anyway, I wonder what the commish has to do with all this. Has to be something that would be MLS wide. I got it! The All-Star game is going back to Rio Tinto which is better than awarding the MLS franchise to Hooper, Utah.

    When he's not igniting on-line flame wars over who was the best captain, Kirk or Picard (no contest, everyone knows it was Kirk).

    What if the all star game is at the Riot this year? Everyone wondering how they will fill the extra season ticket holder games.

    That's probably why the guv-nah is there.

    Ok, not this year, next year. It has to be something that concerns the MLS enough to drag the commish out here and also get the guv-nah to show up. The Gold Cup wouldn't really do that unless there was someone here from USSF.

    Maybe it has something to do with the reserve league announcement. RSL is going to sponsor a USL-Pro team in Sandy, Utah and call them the Utah Highlanders!

    Maybe we will be adding a NWSL team in the future, I can make these wild uninformative guesses all day folks. Or at least a few more hours.

    Its gotta be Falcao all sign point to this, colubian, big enough new to get the comish, and at Falcao's request he wanted the Mayor and the "Gov-nuh" there to welcome him and plan his parade.

    They just had to go and schedule this "major announcement" during my weekly meetings. Assholes. Someone needs to do something to push this up an hour or delay it an hour. I'm looking at you, IBIK.

    Depends on what other events are scheduled to be going on under my coat. FYI I'm not going...I'll be listening to the radio with bated breath just like the rest of you. But you can probably go on your own if you want - I didn't see where it said it's limited to media only, and I doubt they're checking ID's at the door.

    On a related note: I'm positive this isn't stadium expansion-related. I spoke with a team official on this exact subject at media day. There are some metrics that have to be reached - and maintained for multiple years - before expansion will happen. We're not quite there yet.

    Yeah, it don't cost anything and if we just happen to get one right, everyone will think you're a psychic.

    Or Star Trek role playing (and this guy would argue your choice in captain).

    Why would it be about the Gold Cup if they have both the big announcement headline AND the Gold Cup Headline already side by side on the Web Site?

    Could just be a formality but that seems quite anti-climactic. Why didn't they wait until now to announce it if the Don was coming.

    Maybe Dave is selling to Dell Loy?
