    Spirited game as a cup game should be. well worth the near 2 hour drive in rush hour traffic. I’m glad galaxy finally treated this game with the respect it deserves by starting a strong squad. Kudos to the Blues for putting up a great effort. Good enough for me to buy one their scarves. Pleasantly surprised that more than 3 thousand people should up. Grateful that the game was handled by the Galaxy as a “home” game. They organized it very well . Lack of a program or at least a roster sheet being the only negative. Preki and Zak Abdel were the only “celebrities” I spotted though. Bring on the Sounders next. will be interesting to see who’ll get to host that game.
