NY Red Bulls vs. LA Galaxy: Playoff Game 1

Sunday was the first game of a two game set against LA. I knew that it would be a lot tougher this time to beat them since their two key players were back and that we didn’t have Solli on defense. I will say that the Red Bulls played pretty well, just LA is a much stronger, more organized team. There is a reason they are on top every year.

Oh, almost forgot to mention that David Beckham is such a baby! Overpaid cry baby that got his way every time. I swear LA had the refs in their pocket too. Ask anyone that saw it and they will tell you.

On to game two in LA on Friday. Wish I had money to go.
