It has been a crazy day for me here. Busy at work. Busy at life. But I wanted to get to this bit of news before the day really gets away from me.

The Union and MLS have scheduled a press conference in Philadelphia for Tuesday, where Philadelphia mayor Michael Nutter and MLS commissioner are expected to announce that PPL Park will be host this summer’s 2012 MLS All-Star Game. The match is expected to be scheduled for late July.

PPL Park was in the running with three other cities to host the mid-summer game.

I really hope the league gets a new squad to face for the All-Star game. Ideally I’d love to see a non-EPL side for a change. It would be cool to see a German or Italian side come in for a change. But that is my two cents. Who would you all want to see the All Stars face at PPL Park?
