Jaime joins the Galaxy

No, not Jaime Moreno. Cardenas.

Yes, the former Los Angeles Times writer has landed on his feet in the world of press relations. He's now the newest member of the Galaxy media staff.

I have to say, it's nice when there's someone around who understands what it's like on the other side. Sometimes it's frustrating when one is on deadline and no one else seems to understand the urgency of that situation.

The hardest part of the job for Jaime, though, might be dealing with the horde of us who want all sorts of inside info now that he knows what's really going on. Who am I kidding, though, Jaime will probably get a kick out of our groveling for info.

It's good to have someone bilingual around for the Galaxy, because there's a lot of Spanish-speaking media in town. At times, I was pressed into translation duties for a couple of outlets. I was happy to help, but usually I had other stuff to do. Now that's all Jaime's job.

Congratulations, Cardenas!

Felicidades Jaime!!

You a were an absolute treasure to us hardcore Chivas USA fans. I hope you find hapiness working for the "others".

p.s. Just some advice, don't piss off Andrea Canales or argue with her. I'm still doing community service.

The dark side? These days in this industry, it's called "job security."
Congrats Jaime.

Jaime, whatever you do, don't get ingrained in the Galaxy's corporate culture. Maintain your integrity at all costs. I speak from experience on this point, as you, l.b. and a.c. well know...
