Morning ladies and germs. Some cool stuff yesterday. Seems like folk enjoyed that season ticket holder event. Cool that the Galaxy go a bit out of their way to show their appreciation for their fan base. Klinsmann won his first match as USMNT manager.
The Galaxy clinched the Supporters' Shield, which I should have realized, but didn't, is a fan made award that MLS adopted. According to Stuptown Footy, the Shield is presented three times, at the Fan Summit, a front office ceremony, and now during the MLS awards presentation. So no on field presentation, but it'll be handed out along with things like MVP and Golden Boot and whatnot.
