Game time! Chivas USA are hosting the Vancouver Whitecaps this evening (7:30 pm PST, KDOC/Direct Kick/MLS Live) at the Home Depot Center. There may be another unique feature to this match: the weather. Southern California is being inundated with rain this weekend, and it may play a significant role in this match.
