Sorry, Rauwshan! For us Californians, we must wear our ear muffs and gloves in 60 degree weather. It’s just how we roll.
It's funny seeing people wear somewhat winter clothes in Cali

While some Goats players headed back to their hometown for the offseason/ holidays, others are taking the time to travel to other countries and do some good. First up, defender James Riley headed to South Africa for a charity mission along with former Chivas USA midfielder Michael Lahoud and friend Mike Herman. Good luck guys!

Back in April of this year, CDChivasUSA.com told you to keep an eye for Anthony Dheming and he’s back in the spotlight. Although the 18-year-old is no longer with the Academy, Dheming has resurged as El Salvador’s promising future as the Gardena native is currently on international duty with the Central American squad. We’re sure we’ll hear more on him in the future:
