The Galaxy (pre-) season begins tonight with the first of two doubleheaders at Home Depot Center in four days.
Up first at 5:30 p.m. are Suwon Samsung Bluewings (Korea) vs. Shandong Luneng Taishan FC (China) followed at 8 p.m. by the Galaxy against Oita Trinita (Japan). Plenty of tickets starting at $15 are available, although both games will also be shown live on Fox Soccer Channel.
Fortunately for the Galaxy, considering last season’s results and the absence of David Beckham and Landon Donovan, the team also apparently known as the “Terrible Turtles” (!) are in fact fairly damn terrible according to this Web site that has more information than you ever wanted to know about the franchise.
Not much time today to add more, but I plan to blog from the game so join me this evening for updates and quotes from coaches and players
