"Sam Bishop, the 27-year-old keeper who has logged three seasons (2005-07) with the City Islanders, spent the opening week of the expansion Philadelphia Union's first training camp working out with the first-year MLS club. Needless to say, it was a memorable experience for the Moorestown, N.J., native."
