The two groups in camp – younger players and veterans -- both had training this morning in some schizophrenic weather, which alternated between overcast clouds, misty rain, and some harder rain. There was even a minute of what looked like small hail, but since we live in California, we are not quite sure what hail looks like. They could have been just some very fat raindrops. The veterans trained earlier in the morning on a field adjacent to where the New York Red Bulls were training. The Red Bulls came to California for the “nice weather.” Poor guys. Hopefully, the sun will come out for them this week as four MLS teams are training at The Home Depot Center, including of course the hometown LA Galaxy and Chivas USA (as well as the San Jose Earthquakes). The veteran group was put through an intense fitness training, made even more difficult by a soggy field, which makes the legs even heavier. The younger players group, which is twice the size of the veterans, trained on the Field Turf as there was too much standing water on the grass. The veteran players will go into the gym tomorrow morning and get a rest for their legs while the younger players will scrimmage again.
