I really do hope my buddy amusedreader comes through since he loves my so-called “Galaxy blog”. Hey, it’s not my fault the Galaxy is hosting so many events in Pasadena as they get ready to make their first Rose Bowl appearance since leaving for The Home Depot Center. They’ll take on FC Barcelona next Saturday at 8 p.m. Anyway, the first of several festivities kickoff tomorrow when the Galaxy hosts a viewing party for its game against the Kansas City Wizards on Saturday (tomorrow) beginning at 5 p.m. at NeoMeze Bar (20 E. Colorado Blvd.). They’ll have prize giveaways, drink and food specials. Miss L.A. Galaxy will also make an appearance, which means you can come watch Freddy and I in action trying to get Miss Galaxy’s number. We’ll get there at 5:30 p.m. if anyone else wants to show up and hang out. For the record, Freddy owes yours truly a few drinks, so someone help me hold him accountable to it. This will kinda be like the time we went to Coach’s in Lancaster hours before the Rosemead-Paraclete clash in the CIF-SS Mid-Valley Division playoffs. On Tuesday, the Galaxy will host a clinic at the Rose Bowl in Lot H. The free soccer clinic for kids 7-14 goes from 5-7 p.m. Parents must be in attendance to sign a waiver and registration begins at 3 p.m. There is limited space so it’s on a first come, first serve basis. And, next Wednesday the Galaxy will host a block Party from 6-10 p.m. at red, white + blueezz Jazz Club (70 S. Raymond St., Pasadena). I might be there for that one, too, since I only live 5 minutes away.
