Freaking Galaxy!

So for those of you who know me, football is my favorite sport. I am not talking about the game where they use their hands, put pads all over their bodies, and don't really use their feet for anything that most people seem to think of when I say I love football... but thats another topic for another day.

So I was watching the LA Galaxy vs the Colorado Rapids on Saturday, and words cannot even describe the horrible horrible game the galaxy played. It's a stretch to even call it a game, or to say they "played" for that matter. Now, let me give you a little history. This is the team that paid like, eleventy sixty three nine twelve bajillion dollars for David Beckham, this is the team that charges 80$ per ticket to see them play, this is the team, who until 2006 was a powerhouse and had never failed to make the playoffs.... so I would expect at least a little bit of a show from them. What did we get instead? A little diddly and a lot of squat. For shame LA, you're better than that, or at least you should be! They managed to lose 4 to nothing... which if you've ever seen a soccer match, is a terrible terrible loss. I've seen under 6 teams play more coherently.

If you're interested in seeing the highlights for yourself, they can be found here:, but if you're going there expecting to see anyone but Colorado do anything at all, you're going to be disappointed. All in all, this was a shameful sad day for football in Los Angeles.

Good grief Galaxy, what the heck?!

What the Diddly?!

In the words of everyones favorite nice guy Ned Flanders, what the diddly?!

Life is full of those "what the blank" moments, where all you can do is just scratch your head and think, "What the blank?!"  Thats more or less what you can expect to find here. A chronicle of those moments from someone who seemingly has to endure more than his share.

So stick around, have a drink and a laugh, and we'll all join together to say "What the diddly!?"
