Good morning Galaxy fans. And what a morning it is! Up in San Jose, they're preparing to break ground on their soccer specific stadium; only took them 16 years and two franchises! They've also flown in Roy Lassiter because Chris Wondolowski is two goals away from tying the MLS goal record.
Of course the Earthquakes clinched the Supporter's Shield last night, so at this point they're just playing for pride and orange slices. Delicious and nutritious orange slices.
For the Galaxy, they'll likely be without their captain Landon Donovan, and A.J. DeLaGarza continues his road to rehab. However they get back Christian Wilhelmsson and Todd Dunivant, so that's a plus.
Here's what the broadsheets are saying about today's proceedings:
