Professional Soccer Coming To SLO...In A Week

I just got done buying our tickets for the two weekend exhibition games being played by the San Jose Earthquakes. The nifty thing is that they are playing these games at Cal Poly, here in SLO. I'm really looking forward to it. I really enjoy soccer but I've never seen a pro team play in person.

They are set to play D.C. United and Columbus Crew. All three teams are in the American-based Major League Soccer, the top echelon of U.S. based professional teams. This league, incidentally, also has many non-American players in it including David Beckham who plays for the Los Angeles Galaxy (Galaxies?).
