Blast coach Cooper in hospital


Blast coach Kenny Cooper will be hospitalized for a week to 10 days with a "deep vein thrombosis," a blood clot in his lower left calf.

Cooper, 45, discovered the problem while in England last week to work out the details for the Blast's return to the Guinness Soccer Six tournament it won there last year. Cooper also was hospitalized last April because of an inflammation of the colon.

In his absence, player assistant coach Mike Stankovic and team vice president Drew Forrester are running training camp, which began yesterday.
