Thank God for Tivo
The best development for the Galaxy was the play of central defender Abel Xavier. The Portuguese back was a beast all night long, single-handedly keeping the scoreline respectable. If he can continue to play at that level for the rest of the season (and Beckham doesn't break his leg), the Galaxy should start climbing the MLS table.
Meanwhile the league's original overhyped poster boy is apparently off to Benfica. Good for Freddy. May he prosper.
