Tonight the LA Galaxy play with a chance at MLS Cup for the fourth time in four years. Their opponent is Seattle, who are in the Conference Final for the first time in their history.

Aside from the LA Times' grammar, the point stands that when Keane is playing well the Galaxy usually come out on top. Seattle isn't all that original, focusing on the fact that the Galaxy have well paid international talent, but it is the narrative.
