Galaxy Defeat Expansion Team! Rejoice!

The Three Second Summary:

(1) Donovan to Beckham; (2) Beckham to Donovan; (3) Hey, there’s Kobe Bryant!

Put it on the board. Yes!

The Galaxy are .500 my friends, which is a good thing for Alexi Lalas, David Beckham and pretty much all of the MLS. Well, other than the Quakes. The Gals reached 1-1 on the season Thursday night by beating the newest addition to MLS 2-0 in front of a sold out crowd at the HDC.

San Jose Earthquakes 2008 Season Preview

San Jose Earthquakes

2007 Record: None

Coach: Frank Yallop (1st Year, kinda)

Key Players: Joe Cannon, Nick Garcia, Ned Gravaboy
Key Pickups: Everyone

Key Losses: None

2008 Outlook: Poor

San Jose is back to defend their title. Well, kind of anyways. Despite winning the Supporter’s Shield in 2005 (as well as MLS Cups in 2001 and 2003), the Quakes were placed on “hiatus” after the 2005 season. That’s a nice word MLS, “hiatus”.

A “hiatus” is defined as “a break or interruption in continuity”. TV shows go on hiatus. And when the TV shows come back, the old cast comes back too.
