The "scrawny kid from Temple City" has exited the stage. The applause will take some time to fade, as will the laughter. Jimmy Conrad announced last week his retirement as a player, doing so with extraordinary flair and a good deal of humor. At 34, Conrad has an intriguing future ahead of him, as a coach and especially as a broadcaster. A concussion might have ended his playing days a little too soon, but it did not rob the former UCLA, Major League Soccer and U.S. World Cup defender of his poise and self-assurance.

A few words plucked from the opening pages of the Chivas USA and Galaxy notebooks now that the 2011 Major League Soccer season is only six weeks away ? Frankie Hejduk is back in town, and so is Jimmy Conrad. The former UCLA players have wandered home, and if Carson isn't exactly Westwood, it suits Hejduk and Conrad just fine. It was in 1994 that shaggy-haired surfer-turned-soccer player Hejduk, 36, left UCLA to follow a zigzag path to the top. Conrad, who turns 34 in two weeks, followed suit in 1997.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Chivas USA ended its MLS winless streak at seven games by defeating the Kansas City Wizards, 2-0, on Saturday night. Justin Braun scored twice in the second half, his fifth and sixth goals of the season, as Kansas City gave up two more soft goals in a season that has been defined by defensive mistakes. Chivas improved to 3-9-3 with the victory, and the Wizards dropped to 3-8-3 and are 1-8-3 since starting the season with two consecutive victories. Braun gave Chivas the lead after a botched clearance from Jimmy Conrad.

Jimmy Conrad, making his season debut, scored on a header off a corner kick in the fourth minute to lead the host Kansas City Wizards over the New England Revolution, 1-0, Saturday night. The Wizards (3-0-0) got their first shutout this season and opened with three wins for the first time in franchise history. Conrad, playing for the first time since surgery March 31 to repair a sports hernia, headed a high-arching shot from about 10 yards that goalkeeper Matt Reis couldn't reach. D.C.

With his first draft pick as a professional head coach, Chivas USA's Robin Fraser resisted the urge to spring a surprise Thursday. The former U.S. national team defender made a defender his first choice for Chivas, selecting NCAA champion Zarek Valentin from the University of Akron as the fourth overall pick in Major League Soccer's 2011 SuperDraft in Baltimore. Valentin, the third of seven Akron players drafted, was the first defender chosen, and Fraser quickly explained why. "Zarek is a proven winner, he's a leader, he's very vocal, and he has a very good understanding of the game," Fraser said.
