Chivas and Houston fans getting ready for this weekend

This is the kind of fan support that will make MLS grow:

"Over 50 members of Chivas USA's passionate LegiĆ³n 1908 fan club will accompany the Red-and-White to its first-ever road playoff game, traveling more than 1,500 miles by bus from Carson, California to Houston, Texas to attend Sunday's decisive Game 2 of the Western Conference Semifinal Series."

That is one heck of a road trip to support their team and I'm sure they will find more then a few fellow supporters in Houston.

Talking about Houston, their mayor, Bill White, declared yesterday as "Go Orange" Houston Dynamo Day. Although not as impressive as a 1500-mile road trip, this is still a great step forward for the club and MLS. These declarations might seem pointless, but they do increase the chance of media coverage.

We'll see on Sunday night if Houston to pack Robertson Stadium for what will probably be their last home match of the year.

If you want to see what might just be the best game of the weekend, you can get tickets here. They are offering the playoff 4-pack (4 tickets, 4 hot dogs, 4 soft drinks for $59.95), which is a cheap way for the family or four drinking buddies to enjoy an evening.
