Watching The MLS Is Like Self Flaggelation

This weekend I went to see the Los Angeles Galaxy play with my wife and some friends. What a disappointing game that was! Despite having discount tickets (only $10) we felt totally ripped off. During the whole game, my teammate and I were joking that “Ronaldinho would’ve made that play.”

My wife and I now have a new song entitled What would Ronaldinho do? sung to the tune of South Park’s What would Brian Boitana do? I think I will have to start passing out WWRD bracelets.

The Galaxy are playing boring lackluster soccer so far this season. The game was a scoreless tie till the Columbus Crew scored in injury time with an ugly goal. Fugly. It takes FC Barcelona visiting to play a Mexican team for us to get us some decent soccer around here. I am hoping to get some tickets to that.

Speaking of the big R, have you seen the amazing Nike commercial featuring Ronaldinho as a kid playing in the Brazillian futsal leagues (like soccer but indoor with smaller teams and ball). It splices scenes of him playing as a kid with him now. He was amazing back then. Here it is on YouTube.

This was a soccer weekend for me. I had a fantastic game on Saturday in which we won five to one, only to be followed by a terrible three zero loss on Sunday. I need to quit playing on Sundays, because it always erases the good feelings created on Saturday.

    Not to pick on your wife and friends, but maybe if the Galaxy had used professional soccor players instead, they might have played better. That must have really irked you, that you weren't invited to play as well ;-).

    Ha! Yeah. My teammate and I thought we would've put a better showing. Heck, some of the guys in our league are played to pay.

    Phil,
    It could be worse. You could be a Rapids fan. My daughter's U-6 games have roughly the same amount of coordination and movement off the ball.
