With the LA Galaxy set to take on the Portland Timbers, let's take a look at the local papers and see what they have to say about the upcoming match.
With the LA Galaxy in rainy Oregon, let's start with The Oregonian who spoke to Donovan Ricketts about the importance of the match. Ricketts took the Carpe Diem approach, that a playoff berth can never be taken for granted. Galaxy fans may have other feelings about Ricketts and the playoffs.
