    I was bummed the Kings did not close it out yesterday, and the Galaxy match was welcome joy. My random takeaways from last night:

    ACB sang "Magee is on fire" at 18'. FWIW, Magee is now really on Fire.

    My friend is a huge Sean Franklin fan. I got her Franklin jersey for her birthday. She wore it to the game for the first time. I told her Franklin would score the first goal. I should say things like that more often. BTW, that was a nice play.

    There's only one Keano!

    I didn't realize how fast Greg Cochrane is until Eddie Johnson tried to play a through ball to himself and just run by Cochrane. I think Todd Dunivant is underappreciated, and, for some reason, though he's been a capable replacement previously, I gave Cochrane some extra scrutiny last night. Actually, I didn't have to, because he made himself conspicuous with his complete lack of touch on receiving the first diagonal, a cross into the front row, and a couple of shots that doubled the height of the crossbar. However, I thought he was great on the ground and recovering defensively.

    I don't know what got into Shalrie Joseph, but he was letting the arms fly last night. Sarvas was not the only guy he whacked in the head, and he really earned that red card over the course of the entire game.

    Zardes was pretty good.

    The fireworks after the game were really, really good.

    After a good night, all the more reason to be thankful on this Memorial Day.

    man alive on this lawsuit:

    http://folfry.com/chivasusa/pdf/HELM...nt052413-1.pdf

    In explaining the actions, Chivas USA President, Jose David, informed
    them that Chivas USA was going back to its Mexican roots – a sentiment echoed by Jorge Vergara,
    who brazenly pronounced, “If you don’t speak Spanish, you can go work for the Galaxy.”
    On or about November 13, 2012, Mr. Vergara – now the sole owner and
    highest ranking senior executive at CHIVAS USA – called a mandatory meeting of all employees,
    including plaintiff MR. CHRONOPOULOS. At the meeting, Mr. Vergara intentionally humiliated
    all employees who were neither Mexican nor Latino. Mr. Vergara brazenly announced that all non-
    Spanish speaking employees would be fired. He asked, publicly, for those employees who were able
    to speak Spanish to raise their hands (he initially asked the question in Spanish and then repeated it
    in English). He then asked employees who spoke English to raise their hands. After publicly
    identifying those employees who did not speak Spanish, he announced that those employees who did
    not speak Spanish would no longer be able to work at CHIVAS USA. As he further stated, “If you
    don’t speak Spanish, you can go work for the Galaxy, unless you speak Chinese, which is not even a
    language.”
    CHIVAS USA’s Human Resources Manager, Cynthia Craig, who was in
    attendance at the November 13th meeting, was visibly offended by his comments was overheard by
    MR. CHRONOPOULOS and several other employees stating, in shock, “Oh boy. I can’t believe he
    just said that.”
    On March 7, 2013, MR. CALICHMAN and CHRONOPOULOS received
    identical letters from CHIVAS USA President and Chief Business Officer, Jose David, notifying
    them that their employment was being terminated effective the next day, March 8, 2013. Two
    months had now elapsed since they had lodged their complaints of harassment and discrimination
    with CHIVAS USA’s Human Resources Department. Although Mr. David, in his letter, asserted
    that CHIVAS USA had been conducting an investigation into their complaints (he refers to it as the
    “entire investigation process”), the letter is conspicuously silent as to whether the investigation had
    been concluded or what the conclusions of the investigation were. Moreover, in further retaliation
    for their complaints, Mr. David falsely and maliciously accused them of “demonstat[ing]
    unprofessional conduct that created an unsafe work environment.” Underscoring the pretextual and
    false nature of his accusations, Mr. David provided no explanation whatsoever as to how they
    allegedly created an unsafe work environment.
    long read, but man..

    I guess with Super Frankie Lampard no longer an option, they are eager to fill that DP spot. I doubt we will get dos Santos, but I'd be okay with that if it happened. However, I'd like to see Zardes get a chance to play and develop more alongside Keane.

    Rather than dos Santos, it would be nice to get a good center back as a DP, someone with some size and experience, from whom Omar could learn. Plus, we seem to be lacking depth at the back in general much more than F or M. Is it even possible to find someone like this available?

    most likely not. I imagine they want their DP to be someone who can generate publicity as well as goals. But perhaps. Omar is the center back, until this summer when he's a free agent too!

    Do you think we can sign Omar without making him a DP? If they're going after dos Santos, G's seem to be thinking they either can or don't think Omar warrants the DP slot.

    text conversation seen this weekend:

    person A: wasn't it just a year ago Dempsey was yearning to play for a champions league team?
    person B: if that were still true, he would've come to the galaxy.

    hiyo!
