shooting stars

Another Saturday Gameday with the LA Galaxy and Angel City Brigade... My friends Andrew and Michele joined me for this one, along with Michele's friend Kimmie and daughter Chloe. Its the biggest group I've had join in so far this year, which made it all the more fun. As usual, I was worried about everyone joining in with the chants or it not being fun for them (especially a kid), but also as usual, everyone joined right in and had a good time. I don't know what happened in the locker room at halftime, but the second half of the game saw the team playing masterfully together with everything clicking and everyone having great games. The cherry on top was a ridiculously perfect goal off a free kick by David Beckham. It's textbook and worth a view (video below.) And always one of my favorite highlights of a game is the salute the players give the Angel City Brigade at the end. Our next game is the Super Classico - an "away" game in our own stadium against rivals Chivas USA, who also play there. I have no idea what to expect from that. At least the pics won't look exactly the same next time!
