Marked man: David Beckham trains Friday at Home Depot Center ahead of today’s game against former club Real Madrid at the Coliseum (AP Photo).
*Staff Writer Phil Collin scored an exclusive interview with David Beckham as the former England international and the Galaxy prepare to face Real Madrid today. And yeah, as of yesterday tickets starting at $50 were still available.
*But with all due respect to the Galaxy, here’s the link fans heading to the game need to check on this Carmageddon weekend and although traffic is light so far most soccer fans have yet to hit the freeways and there are ominous warnings about gridlock on the Harbor (110) Freeway.
The game is also live on ESPN2 at 7 p.m.
*Good luck to those of you heading to the Coliseum. I’m opting for a competitive game closer to home (surface streets only for me today) at Home Depot Center where Chivas USA play the New York Red Bulls and new signing Frank Rost at 7:30 p.m. (live on Prime and Galavision).
*Meanwhile future Galaxy opponent Manchester City is in the Bay Area today taking on Club America (live at 5 p.m. on KFTR).
*Lastly, Diamond Bar’s Alex Morgan is enjoying new-found fame in the wake of her goal against France in the World Cup semifinal.
