    Well more good news for the Windy City. I for one think Wanchope may have a bigger impact in the long term than Blanco.

    Combined with the Chicago cup starting today, the Gold Cup Finals, Blanco and Wanchope, the Celtic visit, not a bad summer for Soccer in Chicago.

    By the way the Bears opened training camp today.
