Broadcast Update

After having a day off on Monday, the Galaxy were back on the field this afternoon preparing for Sunday's game against the Rapids. The full team, minus David and Landon who are away on international duty, was on the field today, with even the injured players out on the field getting some extra work in.

Longtime Galaxy fans would have recognized a familiar face on the field today as Simon Elliott stopped by and stepped on the field, wearing the #5 shirt that has been left vacant since Chris Albright was traded to New England in January. Simon played for the Galaxy from 1999-2003, winning the 2000 CONCACAF Champions Cup, the 2001 U.S. Open Cup and the 2002 MLS Cup. He was traded to Columbus prior to the start of the 2004 campaign. He played two years with the Crew before signing with Fulham of the English Premier League. He was with Fulham through the end of the 2007/08 Premier League season when his contract expired.

Steve Cronin stepped up his recovery work when he jumped in goal for some of the small sided games and post-training finishing drills. Michael Gavin also participated in the session, serving a number of balls in from the left flank during the finishing drills and participating in some of the games in addition to his work with John Ireland.

Lastly, we said that this was a broadcast update so here is your broadcast update. Sunday's game will now be broadcast on tape delay on FSN West at 9 p.m., with a 30-minute postgame show following at 11 p.m. with a series of reactions from the broadcast booth and the Galaxy locker room. So come on out to the HDC for the 5 p.m. kickoff and then get home just in time to re-live (what we hope will be a Galaxy win) the action all over again. For those of you outside of the Southland who can't make it to Carson, you can also listen to the game live on KTLK 1150 AM (English) and 1330 AM ESPN Deportes Radio (Spanish) or watch it live on the MLS Direct Kick package, though you will have to listen to the Colorado broadcasters.

Also, for those of you who listen to Puro Galaxy every Saturday on ESPN Deportes Radio, it will begin at 11 a.m. this week.

I will be in my season-ticket seat on Sunday, but we am NOT happy that the MLS plays right through National team call-ups that deny us our best and favorite players.

As more MLS players (US and imports) have call-ups, we really need to stop play (as the Premier league does) until they return, or us season-ticket-paying fans will riot (or at least reconsider buying every game!)

I'm so sick of the MLS and AEG. Beckham is annoying the hell out of me too. I'm glad he's not playing for a couple of games. Maybe we'll actually win one.
