Chelsea v. Roma at Heinz Field

Mark Madden, the P-G sports columnist, is wrong about many things, but he's absolutely right about the wonders of soccer. Heinz Field will play host to an exhibition match between Chelsea (of the English Premiership) and AS Roma (of Italy's Serie A) on July 29. The ticket prices are outrageous--$35 for the cheapest seats--but go if you can afford it. Even if Chelsea doesn't buy Becks back from Real, and even if Totti pouts, this will be a lot of fun.

Pittsburgh's own Riverhounds are playing a series of exhibition matches around the region, and they kick off their regular season on Saturday, April 24 against Northern Virginia, in Moon. The 'Hounds schedule is here.
