As I mentioned earlier in the week, I'm at the Penn Relays for most of today. Usain Bolt runs in the USA vs. the World 4x100-meter relay at 2:50 p.m. After that race, I'll be on the first train to Newark that I can get on. I hope to be at Red Bull Arena at around 4:30. As soon as I get to press row, I'll launch the chat. So stay tuned.

Of note, the Red Bulls lead Major League Soccer in fouls committed with a total of 62 over four games. That's an average of 15.50 per game. The Union have committed 29 over three games, an average of 9.67 per game.
Just a little something to think about.
I'll talk to you all later this afternoon.
