Evening LA Galaxy fans! The Galaxy are all set to take on Seattle Sounders FC tonight. The lineup is fairly interesting, with David Beckham, Robbie Keane, Todd Dunivant, and Josh Saunders all away from the team right now. Michael Sarvas in the middle and Juninho on the wing is interesting, especially with Franklin moving up to the midfield. Bryan Jordan and Bryan Gaul start in the back. Edson Buddle is on the bench. The Galaxy are using pool keeper Brian Rowe as the backup goalkeeper, with Brian Perk still recovering.

This may be the most interesting lineup the Galaxy have trotted out all year. It'll certainly provide for a ton of talking points.
