Galaxy Gamers

Before we pick up a controller, a bit of in-house news to take care. A.J. DeLaGarza changed his uniform number from 16 to 20 and trialist Yohance Marshall changed his from 38 to 5.

Also, Happy Birthday wishes to Landon Donovan, who today turns 27. Bayern Munich takes on Landon's old Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen in a DFB Cup match today at 1:30 p.m. Last season's Galaxy MVP is one of five players on the team that celebrate their birthdays this month-- Josh Saunders (28 - March 2), Josh Tudela (25 - March 13), Jovan Kirovski (33 - March 18) and Sean Franklin (24 - March 21) are the others.

Now, onto the games.

If you would like to meet the Eddie Lewis (the real one, not the virtual one pictured above), here's your chance. Eddie will be in Santa Monica Saturday to take part in the EA Sports FIFA Interactive World Cup regional, where three berths in the National Final in New York and a prize package valued at $2,000 are up for grab. He will be around from about 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica.

Also, on Feb. 26, 2009, Super Mario Kart was crowned the best video game of all-time by the Guinness World Records. We on the blog staff and players on the LA Galaxy wouldn't disagree with that assessment as we are all fans of Mario Kart Wii.

Telemundo 52 came by last week to watch some of the guys play this fun and interactive game. The video is in Spanish, but we feel you will enjoy it anyway. Who wins? You have to watch the video to find out.

Be sure to check back later. We will have a brief recap of today's scrimmage against the Colorado Rapids at 1 p.m.

Thanks for the team roster number updates. And, the video as well.
Happy B'Day, Landon! Dude, we need you back - come back healthy, eager, energized, and ready to burn! Happy B'Day to Jovan, Josh-S, Josh-T, and Sean this month!
I hope that Eddie, Bryan, and Todd are still recovering & healing well! Get well, guys - Be ready for the coming season. It's going to be very competitive and explosive. Some clubs have brought in either fast "burner" strikers or attacking mid-fielders. Be ready for it, guys!!! Also, I'm hoping that we'll actually get to see pics AND video from today's scrimmage. That would be spectacular.

what about the contracts (of Saunders and AJ, is the website accurate listing them as Seniors) tough ?

Thanks for posting the video. I have the game for Wii also, it is really fun. Who's in the top picture with Omar?

What are the chances the Galaxy will take back some of these crap Becks shirts and perhaps exchange them for some loyal player jerseys, or better yet some eager rookies like Omar and AJ......if so, I'd like to be the first in line for that exchange. Seeing as how life without Becks is probably gonna be a drop in dollars maybe its time to start rethinking the whole marketing program this year, perhaps quit selling BrandBeckham and start marketing the BrandTraitor T-shirt line.......I have a feeling those would sell out pretty quickly with the sour taste that Becks has left in the mouthes of Galaxy fans. Heck I better get to the trademark office quick with that idea. In less sarcastic news, great job with providing us the video and up to date news on this site. I look forward to it.
