Enter Irene

We were going to devote this post to one of our semi-regular looks at stadium construction and development around Major League Soccer.  However, with Hurricane Irene churning up the coast, it makes sense to put off the stadium discussion until next week.  Games in New York and Philly have already been postponed and other games have had their start times modfied.  From a business perspective, the postponment of the Galaxy/Red Bulls matchup is a disappointment for the league.  The match has long been announced as a sell out and was teed up for an ESPN2 broadcast on Saturday night.  While the network will still televise the game, the match will now be a Tuesday night at 8:00 with a strong liklihood that the sold out crowd will not turn out en masse.

Regardless, we want to wish everyone good health and safety this weekend as the storm makes its way North. Even here in Hartford, we are expecting some significant weather on Sunday. It seems the entire Northeast is in the cross hairs of Irene.

Be safe
