Congratulations to the Galaxy on the MLS championship! As for ABC ... well, go figure. It spent $100 million for the World Cup but can't give 15 minutes for the MLS Cup trophy presentation. RICHARD LACEY Torrance Maybe I got lost in my own city, but I was vainly trying to locate the parade route on Figueroa on Tuesday for the L.A. Galaxy for winning the MLS championship. I tried Pico on Wednesday, and La Cienega on Thursday. No luck. Maybe I'll try Rosecrans on Sunday.

Davy Arnaud scored one goal and created another Saturday night, and goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen made two exceptional saves as the Kansas City Wizards defeated the Galaxy, 2-0, at the Home Depot Center. The loss was the second in a row for Coach Bruce Arena's suddenly slumping team and the fourth in six games in what has been an abysmal August for the league leader. The Galaxy has lost seven of its last 11 games in all competitions, including the U.S. Open Cup, the CONCACAF Champions League and a friendly against Real Madrid.

What a difference one season makes. Last year, the Galaxy was staring in glum disbelief at its tied-for-last-place finish in Major League Soccer. Today, it is a first-place team, concluding its 2009 regular season Saturday night by defeating the San Jose Earthquakes, 2-0, at the Home Depot Center to clinch the top spot in the Western Conference. The last time the Galaxy did that was in 2002. What does it all mean? Not much right now. It won't be until after today's match in Carson between Chivas USA and the Houston Dynamo that they will know who their first-round opponent will be. The Galaxy will play the loser of that game or, if it ends in a tie, the Galaxy will play Chivas USA. The playoff opener would be on the road Sunday, Nov. 1 (4:30 p.m. Pacific, ESPN2)
