Sunday Soccer: And the Galaxy’s MLS Cup Opponent is…

i-8907e1c74441693c36e8c450b46d8b21-grabavoy.jpgFormer Galaxy player and goal hero Ned Grabavoy, left, and Real Salt Lake, which beat the Chicago Fire on penalty kicks to become Eastern Conference champions (let’s get rid of these silly conferences based on irrelevant geography, MLS) will face the Galaxy Sunday in Seattle.

Grabavoy scored the winning goal just before the picture was taken above, although former Galaxy striker Robbie Findley almost scored in the dying moments of regulation time only to be denied by Palos Verdes Peninsula product John Thorrington.

Game story.

Wonder how relevant the two games these clubs have played this season already will be next Sunday?

A Landon Donovan-less Galaxy were abysmal in a 2-0 home loss to Real Salt Lake in June, while a 2-2 draw to RSL the previous month in Sandy, Utah wasn’t much better.

Convinced next Sunday’s game will have a better outcome?

    Wow. What a relevant piece of news. You found a way to be negative about the Galaxy once again.

    Here is a concept for you Nick. Why don’t you try writing about how things have changed for both teams since their regular season meetings.

    Finally, the Houston Chronicle description of the Galaxy-Dynamo game (via the link in your previous post) was a well written piece with actual game description and analysis and not just a bunch of locker room quotes about unrelated trivia. To bad you can’t get him to write about soccer in Southern California.
