Behind The Scenes of MTV's Rock N' Gol

Three months ago, MTV came to The Home Depot Center to film their latest installment in their Rock N' Jock series -- Rock N' Gol.

Tonight, the celebrity soccer game premiers on MTV tr3s at 6 p.m. PT (check local listings).

The game featured members of the 1994 U.S. National Team like Cobi Jones, Tab Ramos, Marcelo Balboa, Tony Meola and celebrities like Avatar's Michelle Rodriguez, Sen Dog from Cypress Hill (who was sporting LA Galaxy shorts and jersey) and Akon -- who butted heads with Cobi Jones during one of the matches: see photo.

Also on hand at the event was Miss LA Galaxy 2010 Nicola and the LA Galaxy Futboleros, who were hanging out in the VIP area, rubbing elbows with the celebrities and posing for photos.

Below are some of the photos from their scrapbook.
