No Column Today

I’m preparing for my first two-week vacation in three years, so there’s no column today.

I’ll return next Tuesday with a review of the forthcoming Spanish-language futbol movie “Rudo Y Cursi,” which opens May 8 in L.A., and a look at soccer movies in general.

A couple of items of note to pass along:

*CONCACAF this morning announced it was postponing indefinitely the region’s Beach Soccer Championship scheduled to begin Wednesday in Puerto Vallarta due to the spread of swine flu in Mexico. CONCACAF on Monday canceled the remainder of the CONCACAF U-17 Championship and postponed the second-leg of the Champions League final until May 12 to “safeguard the health and safety of players, officials and fans.”

*The Galaxy and Chivas USA youth teams split a pair of games on the weekend, the Galaxy U-16′s beating Chivas USA 4-0 at Home Depot Center, while the Chivas USA U-18′s prevailed 3-1 over the Galaxy.

    Enjoy! – where are you going ?

    I’ll take the trip across the Atlantic pond this Friday to watch the next 4 Galaxy games, if things with the flu remain more or less as it is now.

    Nick replies: Sounds like we have a similar agenda. I’m heading out Sunday (after the Galaxy-NYRB game) to see them play against RSL next Wednesday in Utah and the Sounders in Seattle.
