On the Ground in Houston

The Galaxy arrived in Houston this afternoon ahead of Sunday afternoon's all important battle of Western Conference heavyweights.

As is always the case when we hit the road, the media descended on the club's hotel this afternoon to speak with the club's captain, Landon Donovan, who re-joined the team this afternoon following his stint with the U.S. National Team, and David Beckham who is making his first-ever trip to Houston. In 2007, Beckham missed LA's 2-1 win over the Dynamo with a knee injury while he missed the 3-0 loss here last season, a loss that eliminated the Galaxy from postseason contention, because of a suspension for yellow card accumulation.

Before those guys met the press, the entire team hit the gym for a quick workout to get the blood flowing and the legs moving after the three-hour flight this morning from LA.

Once finished with the weights and on the treadmills and the exercise bikes, Landon and David made their way upstairs to speak with the press. Here is what they had to say.

YAY!! Thank you for the update!

Can please update at least one more before the game? Like updating the team's preparation at the stadium or something like that?

Thank you very much!

Great comments from both David and Landon. Play well today and play as a team.
