The Galaxy has landed: Becks and the boys deplane in Australia (APF Photo).
Apparently one local pundit sees the game for what it is – a farce (which seems a bit harsh to me, but then I’m a sensitive soul as regular readers know).
You can watch the dud, um, friendly at 12:30 a.m. Saturday live on Fox Soccer Channel with a pre-game show starting at midnight.
*A much more important game Saturday involves the second leg of the World Cup playoff between the U.S. and Italy. Naturally, it’s not on TV.
*Click at top right for the complete run-down of the many other games on TV this weekend, including Monday’s Real Madrid-Barcelona crash fans will not want to miss. If you haven’t heard, Barcelona’s Lionel Messi is absolutely on fire.
*For those who prefer their football live and in person, the UCLA men play Dartmouth at 5 p.m. Sunday in the NCAA Tournament.
Whatever you do have a great continuation of the holiday weekend and I’m thankful you take the time to read this blog throughout the year.
