That's the night that the lights went out in Carson

Friday night was the LA Galaxy game. Started at 8pm. We arrived about 6:45 since you never know how traffic is going to be and the last game we parked far away. We did our pre-game stuff. Got our free hot dogs and soda's and sat down to watch our guy's practice.

We got our seats near where we usually sit so we got to talk to Tammy and Phil.

About 15 minutes into the game, the lights went out. All the field lights. They were out for about 20 minutes. It was actually kinda cool. They came back on and they played. There was no score at the half. They started playing again and about another 15 minutes into the second half, darkness. Again. For another 20 minutes. They game went into overtime. We scored in the first 15 minutes overtime and then again in the second 15 minute overtime. We won! Hot diggy dog. We thought about going to Seattle for the final game but tickets are pretty expensive.

Last night we watched to see who the Galaxy is going to play. Real Salt Lake won in a shoot out. They played 90 minutes, two over time 15 minutes and usually there are 5 kicks on each side but last night, I believe it went to 7.

Next week La Galaxy will win. If we can't be there we hope to be at a watch party somewhere. Unless we have one here, hmmm.
