A unique feature of the Home Depot Center stadium is that there's grass seating on a little hill at one end of the stadium. Usually, though, they don't open that area up for fans unless everything else is sold out.
I always consider that a true sell-out, no matter what the numbers are officially. No one on the grass? Not a real sell-out in my eyes.
Well, they're selling the grass seats already for Friday's game, so there are really a lot of tickets sold. Traditionally, because of the fireworks show, the Galaxy have had excellent 4th of July attendance. In fact, they used to get bigger crowds at the Rose Bowl, because there was more room.
Heck, I'd be up for a nostalgia game at the Rose Bowl for the Galaxy now and then, but it hasn't happened. They did play a SuperLiga game at the Coliseum last year.
Chivas USA are having fireworks at their match the next day, however. That might be the best deal, because even the grass seats for the Galaxy aren't that cheap - 36 bucks.
