And We're Off!...Well...Almost

It was rain, rain and more rain the past couple days here in Frisco, Texas, but the skies have finally opened up and we can actually see some sunshine. Just in time too, as the opening games of the Development Academy Winter Showcase are 24 minutes away from kicking off. Here are the 9 a.m. CT matchups (all U-15/U-16):

Metro United vs. PDA
Chicago Fire vs. PA Classics
Chicago Magic vs. D.C. United

And while the games are beginning, the coaches, player, referees, scouts and everyone else is heading over to the Players' Lounge tent. What can you find in the tent? Better question is what can't you find. There are tons of XBox 360s to play EA Sports' brand new FIFA Street 3, free Gatorade (yes, it's free!), a DJ playing the hippest music around (so we're told by the kids), and Studio 90 doing live interviews. Nike is on site showcasing new equipment and there are computer terminals so players can get on the Internet. There's even a t-shirt printing machine so anyone can take home a souvenir of the Winter Showcase.

There's a lot of stuff going on...and it's all just started. We'll have more for you soon! Oh, and by the way, now we're 12 minutes away!
