I am keeping things short and sweet today.  Training camp (aka MLS's spring training) is under way with the Union kicking things off in Wayne.

Time for more coffee!  Join the discussion below!

Mwanga Eager to Build on Rookie Season For Union [John Smallwood, Daily News] - The former #1 overall pick is looking to build on the successes of his rookie season.  He'd be cooler if he dropped an "n" from his first name.

Philadelphia Union Open Training Camp in Wayne [Marc Narducci, Philadelphia Inquirer] - As the team looks forward to its second season, defense is definitely on the mind of manager Piotr Nowak.

Philadelphia-Reading Partnership Pays Early Dividends [Judah Levine, PhiadelphiaUnion.com] - Levi Houapeu featured on Reading United A.C. last year, who are the Union's exclusive PDL affiliate.

Training Camp, Sexism, and Bobby Convey's Back [Adam Cann, Philly Soccer Page] - It sounds like a mystery for Angela Lansbury!

MLS Club Preseason Schedule [MLSSoccer.com] - The full preseason schedules are up for most teams.

What to do with D2 in America [Geoff Gibson, Stumptown Footy] - Gibson touches on a few ideas on how to save D2 in the U.S., including turning it into an "MLS 2."  I'd love to see a second level league complete with promotion / relegation.
