Picture of the day!

Chivas USA Defender Jim Curtin visited downtown Chicago on Friday afternoon and greeted local kids from Goethe Elementary School. The event was organized by the Urban Initiatives soccer program, a non-profit organization that works with inner-city and underprivileged children. Curtin was one of key founders of that program during the time he lived in Chicago. He was also the Chicago Fire's honoree at the 2006 Comcast SportsNet Sports Awards. Curtin had the chance to meet Barcelona FC's soccer players, who were also at the event.
