With the 2018 #MLS
season just days away, I’ve decided to take a bit of a look at the state of soccer in Los Angeles, its inspiring history, and bold future, in a series called the #WeekofSoccer
Arguably the most decorated club in American soccer history, the Los Angeles Galaxy won its first MLS Cup in the fall of 2002 while wearing this brilliant teal-and-gold jersey. While now renown more for its dynastic Donovan/Beckham/Keane era in the early 2010s, it was this team - featuring the insane goal scoring exploits of Guatemalan striker Carlos “El Pescadito” Ruiz, the wonderful grace of Salvadoran maestro Mauricio Cienfuegos and the fire and spunk of local kid Cobi Jones - that planted a seed of fascination with the Beautiful Game deep inside of me. One that has yet to leave.
