Hey all, hope all of your weeks are progressing nicely. Big news for me today as MLSsoccer.com has officially launched. I'll be residing in the news section of the website, where you can check out my piece on Andrew Dykstra, which I wrote after my interview with him yesterday (Note -- if you read yesterday's Fire Confidential post about Dykstra you probably already know everything I presented in that article. That doesn't mean you shouldn't check it out though...).
Ok, shameless plugging time is over. In some real Fire news, the team announced via its twitter feed that an announcement regarding what TV station the Fire will be locally broadcast on in 2010 will be made next week. You can catch this weekend's game on ESPN.
In more TV news, the Fire announced yesterday that Dan Kelly will be the Fire's play-by-play man this season. Chris Doran will provide color in the booth. For those of you who don't remember (or just don't follow hockey...), Kelly served as the play-by-play man for the Blackhawks on Comcast Sports Net from 2006-2008. He called MLS matches on HD Net in 2005.
I'm expecting to interview Frank Klopas today, so I should be back with an update after I speak with him. Expect it sometime this afternoon. Until then...
