The Los Angeles Galaxy defeated the Houston Dynamo 1-0 in front of a sellout crowd at the Home Depot Center in Carson City, CA on Sunday, November 20, 2011. Landon Donovan scored the winning goal on an assist from Robbie Keane and David Beckham.
When David Beckham was signed by the Galaxy five years ago, I could not have been happier. I have played soccer for over 25 years and even coached High School Soccer for seven years. Needless to say, I love the game of soccer, but soccer has always been a secondary sport in the United States and I hoped Beckham would change that.
My brother bought us season tickets with the Los Angeles Galaxy the first year Beckham signed with the team and we have been watching Galaxy games ever since.
The atmosphere on Sunday was amazing and watching our home team take home the MLS Cup was an amazing experience . . . something I will always remember.
And the greatest part was being there with my brother.
Thank you Rocky for your amazing birthday gift five years ago. I can’t tell you how great a gift it was. And thank you for having the forsight to purchase the tickets in advance for the MLS Cup. You’re an amazing brother, an outstanding person and a true friend.
