Los Angeles Soccer Salon Set for Saturday

One of the more eloquent local soccer blogs is Jennifer Doyle’s “From A Left Wing,” who approaches the sport from a seldom seen perspective.

Well, Jennifer, a fellow panelist for KPFK during the 2010 World Cup, has organized a soccer salon, an all-day celebration of soccer-related literature, film and art in Los Angeles.

The above video, for instance, featuring the incomparable commentary of former MLS coach Ray Hudson, is among the topics up for discussion and represents your homework should you choose to attend (the video is less than two minutes long).

The full event program is here.

    stupid to schedule against a Galaxy game with pre-game activities starting at 4 PM including a Wall of Legends ceremony honoring the 2002 championship team. I’ll pass.

    Yeah, Stupid to schedule against a galaxy game. i would prefer to watch ICC t20 world cup instead

    It wasn’t stupid, it was the limits of trying to schedule on the weekend. We’ll have a stream up in one of our back rooms for people wanting to keep up with the score.

    This event, I should say, is as for fans of the women’s game as the men’s. And for people interesting in how art and sport comes together. There are no USWNT matches Saturday, but there is one tonight! Soccer is a big tent – lots of different kinds of fans of different kinds of leagues.

    Hope Galaxy fans have a great time doing there thing, wherever that is,

    J. Doyle

    The concept is nice but timing is STUPID regardless of your scheduling limitations. The fact that you indicate soccer is a big tent with a lot of different leagues and fans is, imho, the main reason soccer has not reached it’s potential yet in this country. Everyone doing their thing and having their own agendas is down right unproductive. Make that a topic of conversation. You all should be buying tickets and sitting your butts down at HDC and cheering the Galaxy on to clinch a playoff spot . then you can go on with your interesting little projects.
