Practice today was a little more fun. Tuesday was mostly fitness. Today was just a full field scrimmage for 90 minutes. Here are a couple of noteworthies:

Same crew as Tuesday with the addition of Dema, and a keeper named Brandon who I believe is from BYU.

They worked more on offense, and spent some time practicing set pieces. For one team it was Andy and Cordoba taking the kicks. For the other team it was Morales and Alex Nimo. During the scrimmage, Horst had a sweet header for a goal.

I was impressed with: Beltran, Reiman, Nunez and Yura. (partly because they were on my side of the field)

Other news: it's up-in-the-air questionable if Deuchar's work permit will come through in time to get him here for opening day.

Also, Manning hiring came as a result of SCP using a professional executive search firm. This does not appear to be a case of cronyism.
