I'm not really sure what Lawrence Donegan is on about in this article, saying that 600 journalists were locked out of Beckham's presentation last year. I was probably among the last three reporters to get credentialed and hustled inside the event, and there were not a bunch of press kept out anywhere that I know of. Strange inclusion of something that, to my knowledge, never happened.
I'd agree that there is pressure on the Galaxy. There should be. That's what professional sports is about.
Finally, the baking sun in Carson? It's nice mild sunshine out here right now. Wait for summer to trot out the baking references.
