Chivas USA on TV

Excitement continues to build toward Chivas USA's Opening Day, and several local and national television programs are getting into the act.

First, on Monday evening, was a delivery of new Chivas USA 2008 home jerseys to the set of Fox Football Fone-In, with hosts Nick Webster and Steven Cohen.

Also, early on Tuesday morning, three Chivas USA players went to KTLA's Morning News to showcase the team's new "Shirts Off Their Backs" program - where at the end of every home game, the 11 Chivas USA players will give their game-worn jerseys away to fans.

Jamaican defender Shavar Thomas, veteran midfielder Jesse Marsch, and rookie goalkeeper Lance Parker were the three players that arrived at KTLA a little before 7:00 a.m. Here's the trio waiting in the green room:
