Over 16 seasons and the 315 games he played in Major League Soccer, Matt Reis' objective was always the same. Block the shot, protect his goal. A four-time All-Star with the New England Revolution, Reis set every goalkeeping record in the club's history and established himself as one of the top keepers in the league. Last year, after tearing his left quadriceps in the playoffs, Reis called it a career and retired at 38. In his tearful retirement speech, Reis likened himself during his early days in MLS to a soccer pioneer.

The Galaxy is chasing history in the Major League Soccer playoffs. No team has won three consecutive MLS titles, a feat the two-time defending champions can take a big step toward claiming Thursday when the Galaxy meets Real Salt Lake in the second game of a two-leg Western Conference semifinal series in Sandy, Utah (TV: ESPN2, 6 p.m.). History, however, can be fickle. For proof the Galaxy need look no further than its goalkeeper Jaime Penedo, whose own date with destiny ended in disappointment just three weeks ago. Penedo's Panamanian national team went to stoppage time in its final World Cup qualifier needing only to protect a 2-1 lead over the U.S. to keep alive its chances of reaching soccer's biggest stage for the first time.

A few weeks before Halloween, I saw Gordon on the dating site POF.com, short for Plenty of Fish.

Hot on the heels of the surprise success of "Instructions Not Included," which quickly became the all-time highest-grossing Spanish language film in the U.S., comes another movie aimed at the same audience. "Pulling Strings," also being released by "Instructions" distributor Pantelion Films, looks to do potential crossover audiences one better with a story that allows the language to be split between Spanish and English. Serving mostly as a strong calling card for star Jaime Camil, the film has an appealingly loose, slightly ramshackle charm.

Just when the Galaxy found itself on a roll, four of its best players were absent when the club hosted conference rival Colorado on Saturday night. The Galaxy entered the match against the Rapids at StubHub Center having won its last three games, lifting the Galaxy to a tie with Seattle for second place behind Real Salt Lake in Major League Soccer's Western Conference. But Galaxy forwards Robbie Keane and Landon Donovan, along with defenseman Omar Gonzalez and goalkeeper Jaime Penedo, all were away on international duty for World Cup-qualifying matches.
