Taking things back to 2007 when Chelsea FC came to the Bay Area. Not the best view, and not the best camera at that time but the original plan was to see them in Los Angeles but when this game was announced the game at Stanford Stadium against Club America was the better sell. Some of the top names were part of the tour including John Terry, Didier Drogba, Peter Cech, and Frank Lampard. Since the Quakes were not playing that year a soccer fix was very hard to come by except for the lower division teams at that time so something to check out. On a personal note, this friendly won out over the baseball All-Star Game.

If there’s a team that would be worth the revisit Chelsea would be it.
