On the G bus
Here's pics of the ACB, Riot Squad and other Galaxy fans up at Oakland. I rode up in one of the bus charter deals arranged for fans (thanks Galaxy staff for helping me get a spot). The bus trip was interesting. I was tired, so I actually was trying in vain to sleep while others were practicing chants, watching the Galaxy anniversary DVD, and complaining about the wimpy air conditioning, but those with more energy had more fun.
The bus wasn't supposed to leave Oakland until 10:30 last night. I had planned to file by then, but in the middle of the presser, I was informed by one of the Galaxy press staff that my bus was ready to leave right then (about 9:30). I had to grab my stuff and leave. Sorry to any Galaxy fans who were stuck on the bus waiting for me.
Thanks to my editor, Jen Chang, who accepted the article this morning instead. Thanks to Mario, Tommy, Justin, Patrick, Sahar and Gary for making sure my bus didn't leave without me. Thanks again to Jonah for letting me use his MacBook.
The moral of this story is: I need a Blackberry. Then I could just file from a moving bus.
