Le Toux out of Saturday's game

In case you ever had any doubt as to how much of the discourse in American soccer is conducted on the Internet, here might be the ultimate proof.

The Union announced via Twitter late Thursday night that Sebastien Le Toux won't play at Los Angeles on Saturday.

The medical/coaching staffs have decided it's in Sebastien Le Toux's best interest to take the week off to recover.

While Le Toux will sit out this week against the @LAGalaxy, his left knee injury is considered "mild".

I'm not saying that news has to go out via Bat-signal, or even emailed press release. But to do it on Twitter is rather amusing.

(At this point the kettle looked out at the chorus of pots reading his writing, realized what was coming, and moved on.)

A reminder that the game kicks off at 10:30 p.m. Saturday and will air on WPVI-6.2. If you're going out to watch the match at a bar or restaurant, let me know. I'll try to put together a list of establishments showing the game on here.
