The MLS expanded the season length to 30 games in 2003. The first match will be the LA Galaxy visiting the Columbus Crew on April 5th. In a nice sign of the expansion of the league, the game will be broadcast live nationally on ABC. Meanwhile Chicago Fire star Demarcus Beasley underwent successful arthroscopic knee surgery. He's expected to be recovered by opening day. The US Men's National Team emerged victorious in a 2-0 friendly against El Salvador. Clint Mathis captained the team. "On the field I'm more like my father. I'm just so competitive, I can't help myself -- I'm a dick." says our boy Clint. Finally Grant Wahl's SI column details his picks for the 2006 Cup Team. A bit early to predict, isn't it?
