Hey Galaxy fans, and good morning! Go ahead, grab yourself a cup of tea, maybe fold out the morning paper, and let's see what the broadsheets have been saying about the Los Angeles Galaxy:

The Galaxys Chad Barrett was in the right place at the right time Saturday. Boy howdy, was he ever.

Galaxy 1, Crew 0: Slumping Crew loses in stoppage time | The Columbus Dispatch

A victory over the Los Angeles Galaxy would have given the Crew the outright Eastern Conference lead, and the probability of that increased when Galaxy coach Bruce Arena submitted a B-list lineup sheet. But the Crew failed to score, conceded a heartbreaking goal to Chad Barrett in second-half stoppage time and lost 1-0 to the Galaxy Lite in front of a capacity crowd of 21,203.

Notice the difference in tone from the LA newspaper from the Columbus newspaper. The LA folk basically say, oh that's nice, and take another sip of tea. While in Columbus, they were insulted with the B-list, and then the crew failed anyway and their hearts were broken.

Let's see what the tabloids had to say:
