It’s an annual ritual for  every team to take a  team photo, and on Wednesday it was Chivas USA’s turn. After practice, everyone headed to the locker room to prepare. Despite being the first one dressed and ready to go,  Jorge Villafaña was the last one to step out onto the field for the photo. And to hush all of the rumors out there, General Manager Jose Domene was indeed a part of the team picture  (and yes, he was wearing one of his many crazy pairs of socks- check out the photo below).

Expect the final photo to be available soon, but until then, here’s a behind-the-scenes photo gallery of what went down today:

We know, we know. Like every other week, Kennedy’s heroics haven’t gone unnoticed and are nominated for MLS Save of the Week. With two games played last week  and seven saves, which one Kennedy’s heroics was nominated for MLS Save of the Week? The save that received the nomination was from last Sunday’s match at D.C. United in the 13th minute, when NickDeLeon struck a shot from outside the 18-yard box. Luckily for the Goats, Kennedy’s cat-like reflexes were able to reach for the ball and take it out for a corner kick, avoiding D.C. to take an early lead.

So now that you know the details, what are you waiting for? Cast your vote now by clicking here.

The morning after facing D.C. United, Chivas USA Goalkeeper Dan Kennedy headed to Memphis, Tennessee to visit the young patients of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as part of MLS W.O.R.K.S.

Ambassador Kennedy’s day started off in the Target House of St. Jude Hospital, where more than 100 families are housed, free of charge, while their children recover in the neighboring hospital. Kennedy then headed to St. Jude where he was given a tour of the hospital before getting down to business. From 2-4pm, Dan met several patients (and soccer fans) that are being treated or recovering from various life-threatening diseases. Although he was there to visit all the patients he could, there was one little guy in focus, Archie. The eight-year old patient from Atlanta was the main visit that the Chivas goalkeeper had planned throughout the day. A soccer-related conversation later, Dan gave an excited Archie an autographed jersey, and for the memory, the photograph (above- photo courtesy of MLS W.O.R.K.S.)

In this Saturday’s match against Real Salt Lake at The Home Depot Center, Dan will welcome Drew (11) and Brooke, two former patients of St. Jude, before the game in what will be Children’s Cancer Awareness Night. Make sure to look out for Dan and his two guests Saturday night!
