    First game in LA for years, although they have played in nearby Carson before.

    Rapids play a football club from LA, hopefully in soccer. Sunday night at 8PM, at the bank stadium.

    It will be interesting to watch. Altitude I assume?

    Given that the Rose Bowl is in Pasadena I'm not sure the Rapids have ever played "in LA". A USOC match maybe?

    Don't know and didn't look it up. So perhaps the LAFC game is the Rapids first ever game in LA. Our LA "opener"!

    Looks like all 3 times we've played at the Galaxy in USOC/USOC qualifying it was at the Home Dept Center/Stubhub. So yes, this will be our first competitive game in the city of LA.

    I'm short, therefore Randy Newman is an enemy.

    I submit the following:

    That Born in East LA is brilliant. The Randy Newman is, well Randy Newman, good, but from another time. In a way, it's sort of fascinating they're both about the same city. Keep it coming people...

    McBean, Wilson, and most importantly Ford are one yellow from suspension and would miss the RMC match next week if they pick it up in this game.

    It's not just LA. It's all of Cali-for-NI-a . . .
    It's better to be Back Home . . .

    Everybody here is living life in fear of falling out of line
    Tearing lives apart and breaking lots of hearts just to pass the time
    And the eyes get red in the back of your head, this place will make you blind
    Put it all behind me and I'll be just fine
    Another sunny day in Cal-i-for-NI-a
    Sometimes I wish that it would rain here
    And wash away the west coast dreaming from my eyes
    There's nothing real for them to see here

    X was one of the great underrated bands from the 80's.

    "This match is the fifth for LAFC in the month of August, including the side’s U.S. Open Cup semifinal game in Houston on Aug. 8 that went to extra time and eight rounds of a penalty shootout. LAFC has only one win and three losses in the four matches so far this month, making this match an important one for the standings."

    My contribution to the LA scene. It was the Go Go's or the Beach Boys. Surprised no one did Straight Outta Compton

    By the way, enjoyed the contributions. Never heard of X or Yellowcard. Like both, especially X. I liked Missing Persons in HS.

    McBean commits a stupid a possibly dangerous foul, then a minute later has an awful first touch and is only bailed out by an LA foul. Would much rather see Jackson or Boli.

    Awake enough to see Jackson entered. But for an injured Nicholson rather than McBean. You can't get rid of McBean easily.
