Out to LA LA Land

The Wizards continue their long road trip this weekend out on the West coast where they take on Beckham and the LA Galaxy. Kansas City come into the match off of their 1-1 draw in New York last week. LA meanwhile comes in having destroyed Dallas last weekend 5-1. Edson Buddle had a hattrick in the match for his token performance of the year. Will LA's run continue this week, or will they have the big drop off? the game this weekend is on HDNet

Kansas City has almost their full roster back, the only one that will still be missing is Lance Watson, who has the foot problem, which is a great sign for the Wizards. Roger Espinoza is back as well, the question becomes will he be in the lineup. Here's the lineup I'd expect.
Myers - Conrad - Wahl - Harrington
Arnaud - Marinelli - Espinoza
Sealy - Lopez

This was a game that I saw as a win on the road trip, but if LA plays the way they played last weekend, it definitely won't be an easy game for KC. If both Landon Donovan and Beckham have their minds on the US-England game midweek this will be a game that the Wizards can take. In the end I think KC is going to be getting another point out of this game.

KC - 2 (Lopez, Harrington)
LA - 2 (Beckham, Donovan)

Who around town has HDnet???

Both Wizards watch party sites are supposed to have HDNet, and I've been told Embassy is planning on having HDNet by then. Other then that I am not sure.

Where is the Embassy located?

Is MEtro Sports showing it too?

Embassy is at 39th and Main, but I've heard they won't have the game tonight.

Metrosports won't have the game either because HDNet has exclusive access to the game tonight. It's the bad part of the deal with HDNet
