Grab yourself some sweet tea, and let's take a look at what the papers are saying about the Galaxy and MLS. 

Bob Hunter commentary: Crew Stadium issue must be addressed | The Columbus Dispatch
Might seem irrelevant, but the Columbus Crew built the first soccer specific stadium in MLS, and laid the blueprint I discussed early in the week of building smaller stadiums in the suburbs. The article talks about how the sole advantage is it's easy parking and access to freeways, but when it comes to game day atmosphere, there's nothing to do. I always site the Off Campus pub as my example of HDC having life outside the grounds, but having never set foot inside, I might be completely wrong. 

And for the rest, let's see what the peanut gallery has to say about last night's victory:
