Another reminder we live in Soccer City

You never know who you’re going to bump into on Fridays near the Daily Breeze newsroom, especially when both Chivas USA and the Galaxy have home games.

MLS teams stay at the Torrance Marriott, which is next door to our office, so while grabbing a quick cup of coffee this morning at the nearby Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf who should I spot at a table, but goalkeeper Matt Reis of the New England Revolution (which plays Chivas USA tonight) and Frankie Hejduk of the Columbus Crew (which plays the Galaxy Saturday).

I know Matt reasonably well from his time with the Galaxy (and he’s married to a Torrance girl), but I didn’t interrupt. Frankie was in full flow doing all the gabbing; as for Matt, he was just nodding his head.

I’ll post a Chivas USA preview a little later.

    You need to become a “soccerazzi” Nick. What do you mean “I didn’t interrupt”? You should’ve reminded them ex-Bruins that a fellow named Bruin just scored a hat-trick against their old school in 5-1 drubbing last week and dashed for the door before they tackled ya!
