Some thoughts the morning after LA Galaxy clinched their third MLS Cup:
Yes people we get it. Beckham pays a lot of bills. However, there were another 21 players on the pitch last night. The match hadn’t even kicked off and the whole “is this his last game” angle was already worn out. Ian Darke sure didn’t help matters by not going five minutes without bringing it up.
When I lived in LA, I’d always remind people that you don’t live for the weather in the Summer, you’re there for the Winter weather. Wearing shorts in January seems a whole world away from where I am now.
This time of year though, there’s an extra flavor of weather…rain. Rain in California isn’t like it is in other places I’ve lived. Ya see, when it rains there, it does so all day. And it’s not just a little shower. It dumps heavy amounts over the course of the day.
The good …
I realize I haven’t posted in a while but to be honest, I probably would have just ranted about something or other so I decided to keep myself limited to 140 characters.
However, do to some serendipitous events, possibly due to some planetary alignment or the SuperMoon, I found myself flipping through all the games last night and felt the urge to write something.
First, besides the late games (Goats cramming those attending into parts of the stadium to make it look fuller than it was, and Smurph fans scared of a …
I’ve been having a lot of fun–maybe too much–winding up my English friends ever since the World Cup draw in December. To be honest, the best thing about playing England in the first round of the next month is listening to their over-confidence and giving them grief on how little they really know about the sport of soccer in the US.
If there was ever proof needed that of any sport, soccer is the one in which a single player can’t make a huge difference. For 90 minutes (ok, 70 and the post game) we heard Bratos and co talk about David Beckham, his impact, his career and Grant Wahl’s book.
It’s kicking off. (0)

I don’t know if your well paid advisers have told you this or not but, we aren’t buying your bull shit this time around. You say one thing, yet your actions point to something very different. Fool me once….actions not words…and several other cliches come to mind.
Here’s the thing, you sell tickets and shirts. Any club in the world would love the money you bring in from that. However, as we discovered last season, you are nothing without a great cast around you. You became frustrated with the lack …
“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times; it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness; it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity; it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness; it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair; we had everything before us, we had nothing before us; we were all going directly to Heaven, we were all going the other way.

(Just a quick warning, this is a long ramble with no direction…just thoughts coming out so read at your own risk. I promise, my next post will the thought through before I start typing.)
Well, my NCAA Bracket is doing my head in. I guess it would have helped if I had watched a few games this season. I haven’t seen any and don’t know what’s going on except that my Alma Mater didn’t even come close to making the field–though the women are in.
In other news, MLS season starts …
I’ve really done my best to keep quiet here and leave my comments to simple tweets letting the media do must of the story telling. After all, it appears you, your ‘people’ and those in charge at AC Milan seemed to negotiate your end of the deal to stay in Italy via that medium. However, now that you’ve finally come on US TV and told your story to us (remember us, the LA fans?) I just have to vent a bit.
Yeah, I’m still alive (4)

If you haven’t been following the tug-of-war between Milan and LA for the Spiced One, then you probably won’t be reading this. If you have been following it, like me, you are probably sick of the whole thing. Ok, that’s an assumption but I’m pretty confident it’s accurate.
This whole thing is silly. Milan and Beckham have been trying to bully LA into selling him for next to nothing. LA, and rightly so, have called out Milan (though not Spice Guy) for their BS and labeled the offer of US$3million ridiculous. …
