New report claims team will be renaming local street.

A new report claims the San Jose Earthquakes have petitioned the city of San Jose to rename a street next to Earthquakes Stadium to “Wondo Way” in honor of legendary forward Chris Wondolowski.

Elliott Almond of The Mercury News reported over the weekend that the street, currently called Champion Drive, has been petitioned by Quakes vice president Chris Gennuso for the name change, which could take several months to accomplish. The street is currently a dirt road, although the report claims there are plans to pave it eventually. Either way, don’t be shocked to hear official word on this at some point in the coming months.

Here’s more news for this Tuesday:

  • Quakes wrap preseason with loss: The final preseason game for San Jose was another closed-door affair on Friday, with the Quakes hosting Sacramento Republic and falling 3-1. Andy Rios had the Quakes’ goal in the game, with all other info from a Quakes perspective buried deep in the recesses of the witnesses’ minds.
  • New Quakes app: You can download the new official Earthquakes app, which includes a tickets section for mobile ticketing on the respective major app stores. More info on the team site.
  • Piatti out vs. Quakes: There’s a new Piatti in MLS, after Montreal’s Ignacio just left, Toronto FC signed Pablo. The new one will not feature on Saturday against the Quakes, however, as he suffered a hamstring injury in preseason and returned to Toronto for treatment.
  • New Black & Azul episode: The season is nearly here and independent Quakes show Black and Azul is back for season 2. This is a show chock-full of SJ goodies to get you ready for the season.
