By now you may have heard that Mike Magee played goalkeeper on Saturday and kept the Los Angeles Galaxy's shutout despite being down a man for more than a half. Donovan Ricketts got hurt, Josh Saunders got a red card and Bruce Arena had to turn to a field player to play goalkeeper. His man, Magee.

It wasn't the toughest of afternoons for Magee in goal. The San Jose Earthquakes, in true Smurf form, decided to try and find the perfect pass for the perfect goal instead of shooting every time they could see the goal despite a field player wearing the different color shirt for the Galaxy. It's not like I'm complaining and Magee won't either, plus Magee wasn't completely untested. Twice he came out to punch (or slap) the ball away and he made one very good save. His performance earned him MLS Player of the Week honors and more importantly, a Twitter fad.

After his cleansheet, Magee became the subject of #MikeMageeFacts on the interwebs. Fans tweeted and here we have for you, the best of #MikeMageeFacts.
