First off, if you only click one link in this blog post make it this one, a 16-picture gallery by readers of English newspaper The Guardian illustrating the Landon Donovan-David Beckham soap opera. Some hilarious stuff in there.
Donovan was still addressing the issue Friday in Kansas City before today’s nationally televised game (live at 6 p.m. on ESPN2).
Three points separate the Galaxy and the chasing Kansas City Wizards in the Western Conference standings.
Here’s more on the game from a local perspective and here’s even more from Donovan including the apparently increasing likelihood he will head to Europe to play. (BTW, shouldn’t he be updating that pic on his Web site?)
Those who like their soccer live should know that Premier Development League teams the Hollywood United Hitmen and Ventura County Fusion clash at 3 p.m. today at Pacific Palisades High School’s Stadium by the Sea in the Southwest Divisional Final.
Time constraints prevented much blogging this year about the PDL. but the Hitmen are in their first season in the league, having replaced the San Fernando Valley Quakes just weeks before the season started.
Their roster includes San Pedro’s Peter Hazdovac (last seen playing professional football in the lower divisions in Croatia) and the San Fernando Valley’s Willie Simms. The Fusion have former Chivas USA forward Anthony Hamilton on their squad.
