Jason Kreis’ Mind – and a Message to a Merciful God

During the last 15 minutes of Chivas USA’s win over Real Salt Lake (RSL), the camera panned briefly to RSL coach Jason Kreis. At some point during that time, he wore the expression of a man mulling over his life: his past, his predicament, and the moment. And as he thought, a flicker of relief lighted into his expression – maybe a slight lift in his eyebrows, maybe the tiniest curl in one corner of his lips. It wasn’t much, but something showed.

For my money – and I can’t say I know for sure – I think that, in that moment, Kreis said to himself, “Could be worse. I could be Frank Yallop.”

3-0. To Colorado (red-hot Rapids? The main site said it; I swear. The Los Angeles Galaxy made the Rapids look like an offensive superpower. Conor Casey scored for fuck’s sake, and on a good move.

Please, please: someone pull the plug in LA. We’re in flaming puppy territory.
