Sometimes even the weather in Southern California can throw a wrench in preseason plans.
D.C. United, currently training out west, had to make a small change over the weekend thanks to a torrential downpour. The weather forced a friendly against PDL side Ventura County Fusion, originally scheduled for Saturday, to be pushed to Sunday.
That and another friendly Tuesday night against UC Santa Barbara meant the last few days were quite busy indeed ? a fact players are feeling now.
