Boooo! No Open Practice in Philly!

12 Jul

Bah humbug! I contacted the Philadelphia Union to find out if there would be an open practice on Friday or Saturday before the game and got an email back this afternoon. Unfortunately, I was in a meeting at the time and loudly said “BUGGER!” and everyone turned to look at me. I made some sort of lame excuse that I’m sure didn’t fly as I was staring at my Blackberry at the time.

“Unfortunately, due to Real Madrid’s strict travel schedule there will not be an open practice prior to the match on July 23rd. Sorry for any inconvenience.”

Say it with me now: “BUGGER!”  I am highly inconvenienced by this! I think the whole team should make out with me and maybe, just maybe that would heal the pain.

    Awww that sucks! I was going to make a whole weekend of stalking them. Hopefully Arbeloa will let us know which hotel they will be staying in.

    Lozil, play nice and share the team with the rest of us 🙂

    Seriously though, this is disappointing news. I’m not really sure how I would’ve convinced my non-football-loving friend who is tagging-along with me to go to the practice anyway…but still.

    😦 booooooo! considering the trip I’m making for this I was really hoping there would be. I know mou is infatuated with UCLA but I really wish they would have switched over permanently to the east coast before the philly match, because as I understand it since they’ve set up camp over there they’ll really just be in philly for the match right? kinda wish I was a UCLA student right about now.
    anyway, thank you for asking and sharing!

    Yeah, I’m pretty peeved as well. If anyone wants to meet up, send me a note at the Gmail account and let me know where you’re going to be staying or follow me on twitter @dld_ftw. That said, if it’s this hot next week. I’m parking my ass by the hotel pool until the last possible second! 😉

    If anyone ends up with an extra ticket, lemme know, please!! I’m also in New York as I think a few of you are. I’ll check back here later and give my email address in case anyone ends up with an extra! Thanks.

    Is there an open practice in San Diego?

      I haven’t heard anything, but I would contact either the local paper or the organization sponsoring the event. That’s what I did – got in touch with the Philadelphia Union. If you find out anything, please let us know! 🙂
