A hug, a blown kiss and then a piggy-back ride: Eduardo Hurtado is on the job. His 6-foot-3 frame is covered with another night's work and another opposing defense has been thoroughly beaten. "El Tanque" has led the Galaxy to another victory, and now has someone in his turrets. "We just wait and see," said Hurtado's wife, Celina, seated in the front row of the Rose Bowl, two young children beside her. "Every time he scores we know he is going to do something.

When Fernando Clavijo was named coach of the New England Revolution, one of the first things he did was acquire Eduardo Hurtado from the New York/New Jersey MetroStars. The way Clavijo figured it, "El Tanque" still had some tread left on his tracks. Anyone who had scored 30 goals in 50 games for the Galaxy from 1996 to 1998 surely couldn't be ready for the scrap heap by 2000.

Less than 48 hours after attracting 69,255 to its inaugural Major League Soccer game at the Rose Bowl, the Los Angeles Galaxy on Monday cut its roster to the league-mandated 18-player limit. Waived were two former UCLA players, midfielder John O'Brien and forward Ante Razov. Razov is training with the U.S. Olympic squad and had not yet joined the team.

With the Galaxy having won its previous Major League Soccer game and thus being back on an even keel at 5-5, the pressure has temporarily shifted from the coaches and players to the front office. This week, MLS Commissioner Doug Logan expressed disappointment that the team's attendance is so poor. Last Sunday's game drew an announced 7,581 to the Rose Bowl for the 1-0 win over the New England Revolution. This for a team that drew 69,255 for its inaugural game in 1996.

Goals by Cobi Jones and Arash Noamouz gave the Los Angeles Galaxy a 2-1 victory over the New York/New Jersey MetroStars on Saturday night in the inaugural Major League Soccer game for both teams. Yes, yawn, so what. It was merely another soccer game, right? No one cares. Try telling that to the 69,255 fans who packed the Rose Bowl, forcing Pasadena police to seal off the Arroyo Seco at halftime. Tickets were still being sold three minutes before the final whistle.

The battered, bruised ego of Eduardo Hurtado started to heal Sunday. Hurtado, the sensitive Galaxy striker who was virtually run out of the Rose Bowl with boos a few days ago, did some running on his own terms against the Tampa Bay Mutiny. He ran around the Mutiny defense. He ran over it, too.

Eduardo "El Tanque" Hurtado, the bruising forward whose powerful running and devastating finishing carried the Galaxy to Major League Soccer's championship game in 1996, was traded to the New York/New Jersey MetroStars on Wednesday. For one of its cornerstone players, the Galaxy received one of Hurtado's teammates on the Ecuador national team--midfielder Wellington Sanchez, who will join the Galaxy today and be available for Saturday's game against the Colorado Rapids at Denver.

What ails "The Tank"? Why is Eduardo Hurtado playing like a man sleepwalking? How can the Galaxy striker who last season finished third among Major League Soccer scorers with 21 goals have netted only one--as in uno--so far this season? "It's all between the ears," says Galaxy Coach Lothar Osiander, suggesting that the player known as "El Tanque" in his native Ecuador has problems that are mental, not physical. Not so, says Hurtado, taking no offense. And that might be the problem.

Soccer is not a difficult game. Fire the ball in the net, it's a goal. Do it in enough times, it's a win. The problem for the Galaxy is that it can't seem to find the net. On Sunday, in front of a Giants Stadium crowd of 20,624, the Galaxy lost for the sixth time in seven games, 2-1, in a shootout to the New York/New Jersey MetroStars after the teams had tied, 0-0, in regulation.
