Nightly News Round Up: Road Trippin' Edition

With the final schedule comes time for all of us to begin planning our vacations, well at least the more die hard of us. Personally, I'm planning (preliminarily) to go to the: Los Angeles Galaxy, Chivas USA, San Jose Earthquakes, Seattle Sounders, and Vancouver Whitecaps games. I'm lucky enough that I have friends/family all up and down this coast. I'd also like to get a little further east, maybe attend the Chicago game.

And before you ask, no I won't be going to the March 19th game against Colorado. Unfortunately, my dear cousin decided she wanted to get married March 18th in Las Vegas and family pressure is denying me from skipping out. I blame the institution of marriage...

Enjoy tonight's news:

So confident they don't even need a back-up plan!

The Galaxy at David's Beckham-call
I share this author's opinion on Beckham. For somebody who makes so much money, he sure does have the Galaxy on a short leash.
