Late last night, while we were all in bed,

Juninho and David Beckham went for shins instead,

When the players tipped over, the referee winked his eye and said,

It will be a Hot Time in Old Town tonight.

So yes, long story short, David Beckham received his fifth yellow card in six games last night. MLS players that compile a series of five yellow cards are forced to sit out the following match. Juninho received his second yellow card of the game in the 3rd minute of second half extra time. The Los Angeles Galaxy's next game is this Sunday, April 17th versus our very own Chicago Fire. To add insult to injury... or is it injury to Beckham and Juninho's physical insults... Landon Donovan did not even make the bench last night because he is hurt. Donovan remains questionable for this Sunday's game. The Galaxy squad with Juninho and Beckham played to an ugly draw against Toronto FC last night. Imagine what a Donovan-Beckham-Juninholess team will look like.

This opens up Carlos de los Cobos' options of putting out a top squad tonight against Portland and potentially holding back on Sunday since it looks like we''ll see a quasi LA reserves team. I wouldn't mind getting a good look on players like Daniel Paladini, Davis Paul, Corben Bone and some other guys who have made the bench but not seen MLS minutes. HTIOT will keep you posted on the latest lineup news as it happens.
