Fire Sign Pappa

The Fire announced today they've acquired Guatemalan midfielder Marco Pablo Pappa Ponce from CSD Municipal. He will be available to play in the friendly tonight against Everton, which should give us a look at a few intriguing new faces - Pappa, Patrick Nyarko, and maybe even Lider Marmol, if he really does exist. Still no word on the Brian McBride signing though. What's up with that?

To answer my own question, the McBride deal was just made official.
