The strongest players on the LA Galaxy are forwards: David Beckham and Landon Donovan.

Ruud Gullit has resigned as coach of the slumping Los Angeles Galaxy for personal reasons, and president/general manager Alexi Lalas also is out of a job.

Beijing Olympics | August 8 – 24

Looking forward to the Beijing Olympics.  It’s exciting to see the US Athletes breaking records, especially in my favorite sport of swimming.  Michael Phelps is continuing to master his technique and setting records he’s constantly breaking.  Plus, Dara Torres, at the age of 41, secured her spot on the US Olympic team and in the process set records too.   It will be exciting to see the athletes compete in a few weeks.  Go team USA!!

Beckham Scores!

Just returned from my first LA Galaxy game; August 15.  Jason and I attended the game, in addition to Paul and his co-workers.  Beckham played today and was the team captain.  He scored the first goal, a beautiful penalty shot that curved directly into the goal, a very sweet sight indeed.  Beckham’s pass to Donovan resulted in another goal.  Final Score:  LA Galaxy: 2  DC United: 0
