Live chat: Houston vs. Columbus, 12:45 pm's preseason coverage from Arizona continues today as we present yet another live chat from the Reach 11 Sports Complex in Phoenix, where the Houston Dynamo meet the Columbus Crew for an afternoon scrimmage. Kick off is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET, but we'll get things rolling here at 12:45 p.m.

We'll have editors on the sidelines in Arizona bringing you live updates and commentary as well as those at headquarters in New York City answering any questions you may have about the game, the upcoming season or anything else (somewhat) soccer-related. We'll also be getting updates from each club's official Twitter feeds to help keep you up to speed on roster changes and substitutions.

Thousands of fans have already joined during our series of preseason chats, so don't miss out when your team hits the field!
