I’m heading to Seattle in a couple of hours where the expected highs in the Pacific Northwest are around the lows in Southern California and rain is expected throughout the weekend. Warming microbrews at Pioneer Square and a 500-zombie performance to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” in the North Plaza at Qwest Field before Sunday’s 5 p.m. Western Conference semifinal should ward off the chill.
Before I go just have time to note that:
*David Beckham is as ready as he’ll ever be for the playoffs.
*And so are the Sounders.
*Also, OC resident Juergen Klinsmann is offering Toronto a Soccer Solution. Well, someone should.
In Friday’s college games:
*USC scored three second-half goals with the winner coming in the 83rd minute to beat Washington State 3-2 at McAlister Field. USC improved to 10-4-3 overall and is now 3-2-1 in Pac-10
*The UCLA women lost 1-0 to Washington; the Bruins fell to 9-7-1 overall and 2-4 in the Pac-10.
See you from Seattle.
