Obama dialed up Arena … now?


The Galaxy’s MLS Cup victory over … Houston, we believe it was … was a couple of Sunday’s ago. Right?

The White House’s Office of the Press Secretary issued this release moments ago:

“Earlier today, President Obama called Bruce Arena, general manager and head coach of the Los Angeles Galaxy, to congratulate him and the team on winning the MLS Cup.

“The President said, as a soccer fan, he wanted to let Coach Arena know that the team inspired a lot of young soccer players, including his kids.

“The President congratulated Coach Arena on all that the team has done for the game of soccer and asked him to pass along his congratulations to Landon Donovan, David Beckham and the rest of the team.

“President Obama invited the Galaxy to the White House to celebrate their championship and wished the coach and the team continued success.”

Perhaps if the Galaxy had defeated DC United, the word would have reached Washington much sooner.
