Game time Saturday is 9:30PM CST (turn your clocks forward afterwards) and can be seen on MLS Live. Get the annual subscription for $65, its a great value for the season especially if you have to fight for TV time at home. I watch most games on my Nexus 7 tablet (you can also use your iPhone, iPad or Android device).
