That's right, Wilderness, it's over. The MLS Cup has been awarded, to the LA Galaxy. Neither of their two star players- the oh-so-well-known Landon Donovan, or the MLS MVP Robbie Keane (of Ger's beloved Ireland) were very good, but Keane was lucky enough to net the winner in extra time.
But, enough with that soccer stuff. On to the Walk! There should be a GREAT new podcast dropping today or tomorrow, featuring our own ReinaDeLaIsla to tell us about the CWHL amongst many other topics. Give it a listen!
