Heading to Hawaii

Aloha Galaxy fans!

In the midst of the club's tour Down Under, wrapping up the 2007 season, MLS/SUM announced where the Galaxy would be opening the 2008 preseason campaign.

As runners-up in the 2007 SuperLiga, the Galaxy will join MLS Cup champion Houston, J League side Gamba Osaka, the winner of the Yamazaki Nabisco Cup, and a yet to be decided team from the Hyundai A-League in the inaugural Pan-Pacific Championship in Hawaii this February.

The Galaxy will open the tournament on February 20 when they take on Gamba Osaka at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, with the winner of that game moving on to the Pan-Pacific Championship on Saturday, February 23 and the loser playing in the consolation game earlier that day.

Prior to the tournament being announced, we talked to Landon and Becks about heading to Hawaii. Check it out.

So is it the official position of the LA Galaxy and MLS that the Galaxy "Qualified" for the Aloha cup by being 2nd in Superliga?

Because that's a pretty tough sell even with MLS' history of bending the rules it needs to when it so desires.

Why not just admit that we are in the tournament due to Becks and for no other reason.
