The LA Galaxy have just one player left available to play in the MLS All-Star Game this evening: Landon Donovan who's in his fourteenth straight ASG. Whether or not he'll start is to be seen, but what we do know is that the broadcast will begin around 6:30 pacific with actual kickoff just before 7pm.

ESPN is broadcasting live from the stadium (ESPN2 is carrying the match) including the pre-match show, and is unveiling a new invention during the broadcast: cameras in the goalposts. Last year in Kansas City it was the referee having a camera in his hat, so who knows if this innovation is one that will stick. The idea is to give fans a close look at goalkeeper movement.

ESPN FC will also broadcasted live at 3:00 pacific, their first remote broadcast since the USMNT qualifier against Mexico in Columbus. It's ESPN's biggest dip of the toe back in the soccer waters since the World Cup, and should set the tone for the exposure MLS will get from the network the rest of the season.
