I was supposed to go out to Home Depot Center yesterday. I'd wanted to get Landon Donovan's thoughts on facing Bruce Arena for the first time. He's played for him for so long and now they'll be on opposite sides when the Galaxy takes on the Red Bulls in a U.S. Open Cup play-in match tonight.
But my mom usually watches my daughters and yesterday she wasn't able to watch them past noon, and training was probably still going on at noon so I nixed that. I'm not sure if anyone else followed that angle. I might still ask Landon about it after tonight's game.
So instead of focusing on local soccer, I wrote about Manchester United's return to the top.
