The Galaxy's present met its future Saturday at the StubHub Center. And it was likely the future of Major League Soccer that was on display as well. On one side were Robbie Keane, Omar Gonzalez and Landon Donovan, guys you've probably heard of. Let's call them Galaxy I. On the other side - we'll call them Galaxy II - were Travis Bowen, Raul Mendiola and Cody Laurendi, guys you probably haven't heard of. But the organization is hoping those will soon be household names as well, which is why it founded a USL Pro team, basically a minor league affiliate, for whom they can play and train.

State transportation officials said Monday night that motorists were encountering 45-minute delays on the 405 Freeway during "Jamzilla" and that the project was expected to be finished in time for the Tuesday morning rush-hour commute. The paving and striping on the northbound lanes between Sunset and Ventura boulevards was on target to be completed by 6 a.m., the California Department of Transportation said. The work is part of a $1.1-billion project to build the final 10-mile leg of the 405's northbound carpool lane over the Sepulveda Pass.

SOCHI, Russia - The waiting Monday morning and afternoon was something to be embraced, not detested. There was no fear in U.S. snowboarder Nate Holland's vocabulary when weather disrupted the Olympic schedule, causing a day's delay to the men's snowboard cross event. "I live for days like this," Holland said. "Like I said, it was a dress rehearsal. You get a free rush out of it…. Like I said, we'll be back tomorrow. Hopefully the weather cooperates. It's time to go. Tomorrow should be a good day to try and win the Olympics.

Traffic on the northbound 405 Freeway in the Sepulveda Pass continued to flow smoothly early Sunday, Day 2 of "Jamzilla. " But transportation officials are still warning drivers to avoid the freeway between Sunset and Ventura boulevards, where extensive paving and striping is being done over the Presidents Day weekend for a new carpool lane.

"We want to be focused on the operation, not the traffic.

As drivers coped with a partial highway closure on the first day of Jamzilla on Saturday, construction of a new carpool lane on the northbound 405 Freeway proceeded on schedule and should be completed in time for rush hour Tuesday morning, transportation officials said. But there is no indication that the paving and stripping will be done ahead of schedule so all the northbound lanes between Sunset and Ventura boulevards can become operational earlier than planned. The work is part of a $1.1-billion project to build the final 10-mile leg of the 405's northbound carpool lane over the Sepulveda Pass.
