Disgraceful Performance Dooms LA Galaxy Against Seattle Sounders, 2-0

Let me get this straight, Bruce Arena: I am getting word from Tukwila, Washington that your Los Angeles Galaxy reserve team did not take their contest against the Seattle Sounders seriously. They let a man by the name of Nate Jaqua salvage a win against your club, 2-0, in the quarterfinals of the 2010 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup.

Unacceptable. What were you thinking? Did you lose your mind by not starting Tristan Bowen at least, given that you chose to rest the players that would have allowed the guys to progress in the U.S. Open Cup?

If this is the case, Bruce Arena, you should have forfeited this match. The Galaxy did not take this match seriously and had the mindset of "Oh whatever. After we swept them in MLS competition, we'll go with 'two out of three ain't bad.'"

It's a asinine mindset, Arena. Why don't you take the U.S. Open Cup seriously? It would be a really good feather to go in the cap of the club, and it's not a difficult mindset to take.
