2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Hoisting not where the bright torch of triumph,
Gazed, sadly at the Torontos goalie as he stole the win.
Beckham and co-leagues, broken legged.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The Galaxy, a three goal to two loss on their own turf,
Longed to shine like a cyan star, once again;
Their wails failed to trickle to heaven for God to hear.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The Galaxy, in the long afternoon of woe,
Sank, though, Landon Donovan wacked two in.
Shimmered with shame and glimmered like a dying ember,

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 The Galaxy breathed shallowly for now.


I saw that game live as a friend of mine suddenly offered me a free ticket
