What: San Jose Dashes the Clash I remember grimacing, more than once, the day in 1995 when Major League Soccer announced the nicknames for its 10 charter franchises. The Tampa Bay Mutiny? The Kansas City Wiz? The Columbus Crew, complete with a logo that appeared to be clipped from a Village People team photo? What were these people thinking? But the San Jose Clash was inspired.

With nothing to worry about other than remaining injury-free in advance of its opening Major League Soccer playoff game Oct. 1 at the Rose Bowl, the Galaxy tonight faces a San Jose Clash team with everything to worry about. The Clash, whose 11-18 record is the worst in the league (just as its 38-55 mark over three seasons is a league low), has to win all three of its remaining games to make the playoffs.

Alan Rothenberg, whose collection of titles already rivals that of several European royals, added another Friday. The president of U.S. Soccer, vice president of CONCACAF and founder of Major League Soccer now also can be called owner of the San Jose Clash. Rothenberg and a group of partners that includes the Japanese advertising agency, Dentsu Inc., announced purchase of the MLS team from the league for what Commissioner Doug Logan said was "a figure in excess of $25 million."

Had Kevin Hartman played for 90 minutes the way he played for five Saturday night, the Galaxy's 1998 Major League Soccer season opener might have had a happier conclusion. As it was, a Rose Bowl crowd of 36,251 saw the Galaxy defeat the San Jose Clash in a shootout after the teams had played to a scintillating 3-3 tie in regulation. But it should never have come to that. This was a game the Galaxy should have locked up long before.

Alan Rothenberg has spent the last week in Hawaii, honing his golf game on one or another of Maui's many courses. While wandering from tee to green--and occasionally from rough to bunker and back again--he has had time to reflect on his eight years as president of U.S. Soccer. Today, his presidency comes to an end. But whether that also means an end to the most successful era the sport has enjoyed in the United States, is, like one of Rothenberg's long-iron shots, up in the air.
