I had the feeling this supposedly intense season-ending derby would come off as an afterthought.
And both teams played like it.
The Galaxy’s unbeaten home record aside there was little at stake for either team in this perfunctory performance unless you like counting shutouts or watching an old warhorse like Gregg Berhalter finish out a career.
The Galaxy can be excused; frankly they’ve got more important things to worry about. And Chivas USA lacked the passion to play above their station and rescue something from their season.
I opted for the comfort of the couch Sunday evening over the press box and almost fell asleep. Roll on the playoffs.
