2009 Chivas USA schedule

Chivas USA's schedule for this season:

March: 21 Colorado, 29 at FC Dallas
April: 5 Columbus, 11 at Galaxy, 18 Seattle, 22 at Toronto, 25 FC Dallas
May: 2 at San Jose, 9 Real Salt Lake, 16 DC United, 23 at Kansas City, 28 Chicago
June: 6 Seattle, 10 at Houston, 14 at Columbus
July: 11 Galaxy, 18 at New England
August: 8 at Colorado, 15 at New York, 22 Toronto, 26 at Real Salt Lake, 29 at Galaxy
September: 13 New England, 19 at Seattle, 26 New York
October: 3 at DC United, 10 Kansas City, 17 San Jose, 22 at Chicago, 25 Houston

First thoughts:
* No games at all from June 14 through July 11. I'm assuming that's for SuperLiga.
* Chivas USA plays the Galaxy and Seattle three times while playing the rest of the league home and away.
* Chivas USA got the short end of the stick on some away games, as games at Toronto and at Houston fall on Wednesdays and are sandwiched in between league matches.
* The season will once again end with a home game against Houston. Chivas and Houston have built up a good rivalry so it's a shame that we'll have to wait until Oct. 25 for them to visit, and by then the game might not mean anything much as it did last season.
