Luis isn't watching ESPN2

Landon scored in the first minute and now Dave O'Brien, Eric Wynalda and Bruce Arena are discussing Luis' exclusive on Landon wanting to stay with the Galaxy this summer. But it's being miscontrued slightly. Landon said he'd rather play Gold Cup, than Copa America, so he could be with the Galaxy for Beckham's arrival. He said he didn't want to be gone the whole summer. They've cast it as Landon not wanting to play either tournament.

I'm shocked, shocked I tell you, that the unholy trio of O'Brien, Arena and Wynalda made something to appear different from its reality.

On a side note, nice little bit of sniping between Bruce and Dave when discussing Onyewu's NFL caliber size.

Hopkins didn't annoy me on the sidelines this time. I'd say that's an improvement.

I don't mind Bruce snipping at Dave for inane comments like Onyewu's NFL body, Bruce Springsteen asides, and saying, "Everybody is a Red Sox fan," but it bothers me that no one in that booth hits back at Arena with some valid criticism of his World Cup tactics. It's just glossed over. I don't think Arena should be in the booth, mainly because it's hard to believe he's objective.
