So LA won last night. Oh well, they did deserve it. They were by far the best team this year, I just wasn’t rooting for them. Not a fan of the whole Beckham, but damn he is a good player. It was Donovan that came through with the winning goal. No wonder LA wins with that guy on their team, being the whole US captain and all.
Can’t wait till next year when Beckham is gone to see how well LA does.
