Galaxy Gameday Wednesday

The Galaxy are in Utah tonight with kick off at 6 o’clock on FSN.

Galaxy beat writer Billy Witz has a preview, a note on security at Home Depot Center in the wake of the SuperClassico and another money-spinning David Beckham exhibition.

The Galaxy’s Chris Klein talked to The Salt Lake City Tribune about his time with Real Salt Lake.

By the way, Cobi Jones could achieve a notable statistical milestone this evening, according to the Galaxy PR folks:

Galaxy midfielder Cobi Jones is now just one game away from competing in his 300th regular season game of his MLS career. Since the inaugural 1996 season, Jones has appeared in 299 games for the Galaxy, scoring 70 goals and adding 89 assists. If Jones, who has said that he will retire after the 2007 season, appears in just one more game, he will join Steve Ralston, Chris Henderson and Jason Kreis as the only players in league history to have appeared in 300 or more regular season games in MLS history.

Here’s more on the Galaxy exhibition in New Zealand. The figure quoted in the story is in New Zealand dollars, of course.

Meanwhile, a moment I’ve been dreading has arrived: the Galaxy are asking media members for their nominations for Defender of the Year and MVP.

Gulp.

Um, how about Chris Albright (for both?).

Suggestions welcome.

    I like your blog, keep it up :)

    Galaxy Defender of the Year
    Mike Randolph – the rookie

    I think he’s been one of the few positive sparks in a dark galaxy this season.

    Galaxy MVP: Much more difficult

    I’d go with Cobi Jones(before his injury stuff started) or Kevin Harmse

    Goal of the Year:
    Easy – Klein in the SuperLiga Final ahead of Becks’ freekick

    DEFENDER OF THE YEAR:
    ME

    I nominate myself for for defending this pathetic team all season long.

    MVP OF THE YEAR:
    Again me, for coming up with the idea of bringing a mariachi into our section, all in order to entertain the fans when the team obviously could not.

    Defender (if keepers are ncluded):
    Cannon

    If no keeper:
    Xavier
    Randolph
    Sturgis (and I’m only half joking)

    MVP
    Cannon
    The HDC Fans for sticking out this gruesome season special delivered by the Lalas Destruction Factor.
