Another week, another lack of free streaming options. Dallas-Seattle is the MLS Stream of the Week, but of course that option is blacked out in the Puget Sound area. Your options this week are A: MLS Live Account, B: UniMas, or C: Warg-like ability to see through the eyes of animals, and picking up a signal from an RFK raccoon. Though I expect the FCC will be putting their foot down on option C any day now. More like Comcast will find a way to throttle the service.
GAME OF THE WEEK
This is the week that Landon Donovan puts away the record-setting 135th goal. For Vancouver's entire time in MLS, they have had a consistent boogeyman, and that closet creature has been the Galaxy. Lucky then, they get to play the Galaxy twice in two weeks. Yes, this is the second home and home series the Galaxy have had this season, and it will not be the last (they close the season with two against Seattle). LA has won every game between these two teams in southern California. Each side appears to be more or less at full strength, with only Vancouver's Matias Laba expected to miss the match with suspension. LA has four points through three matches, tied for the fewest games played by any team to this point. This game will be a good step towards showing just how closed Bruce Arena's window is.
