Reports say Philly to host 2012 MLS All-Star game

Seattle seems such a logical spot for the MLS All-Star game. The best support in the league, and a game played at the one time of the year where you can pretty much count on glorious weather.

And yet, the game went elsewhere in 2009. And 2010. And 2011. And now apparently in 2012, as the Philadelphia Union has scheduled a press conference for tomorrow when the club is expected to announce that it will host this season's game.

Last season, I had spoken to GM Adrian Hanauer about the Sounders' eagerness to host one of these and it sounded like something that will happen eventually, but not a burning issue with the club.
