Sprinkles: Beckham + advertising? WOW!

Sorry, a day of Champions' League kept me away yesterday. Let's get caught up, shall we?

MLS: The Robbie Rogers Sweepstakes is today at 4 pm. We'll see who lands him then. Columbus has the best odds, Toronto the worst.

The rumor is that a new designated player signing will be announced soon. Thanks to the excellent MLS Underground, I've just learned that there's a possibility of TWO signing before the beginning of the season. One has to be Mr. Blanco, eh?

LA: adidas will be using David Beckham's arrival in LA to push its brand, along with combining efforts with Beckham's other sponsors, AEG, and Home Depot.

The Gals handled Chicago in preseason action on Tuesday 2-1. Tyrone Marshall and Chris Albright were the goal scorers for the Green and Gold (for now).

Richie Kotschau has joined training camp in hopes of a contract.

Dallas: The team dropped the first leg of the USA-Brazil Challenge Cup in Brazil to Atletico Paranaense 3-1. Ramon Nunez scored the lone Hoops goal.

DC: United played Florida International University in preparation for their CONCACAF semi-final against Chivas next week, winning 5-3. The game was filled with subs, and divided into 3 30-minute periods. Rookie Guy Roland-Kpene scored two, with the Carroll brothers and Jamil Walker also adding tallies.

Danish-American defender Jamil Fearrington has left camp without a contract offer.

NY: Ives Galarcep raves about Dane Richards, Dema Kovalenko, and Jon Conway's performances in training camp. Craig Capano, on a trial after being released from Chicago, is now injured and has to hope for a developmental deal.

The Bulls drew 1-1 with Houston in a preseason match in California. John Wolyniec and Brian Ching traded goals.

Kansas City: The Wiz are training in Buenos Aires. Thanks to du Nord for the tip, it's not like we'd ever hear much from the team about it.
