Four months in Germany was time enough for former UCLA All-American Seth George, who signed Thursday with the Galaxy and will be in uniform for Saturday's home game against the Chicago Fire. George, the Galaxy's second-round pick in this year's draft, signed for the Major League Soccer minimum of $25,000, which is less than a third of what he was making for 1860 Munich in the German Bundesliga this year. But money couldn't buy George happiness. Barely playing for 1860 Munich's amateur team, George left for his home in Mission Viejo a month ago, two weeks before the season ended and with a year left on his contract.

It shouldn't come as a much of a surprise that senior striker Seth George scored both goals in UCLA's national championship victory over Virginia last December, or that he's steadily climbing up the Bruins' all-time goal-scoring list--seventh now with 42--or that he has scored a goal or had an assist in nine of 10 games this season. After all, he had a soccer ball at his feet when he first learned to walk and he has been unmercifully driven to be the best he can be ever since.

Forget the Nov. 1 showdown with top-ranked Indiana or the Nov. 13 game against No. 6 Washington, the most important game for UCLA men's soccer team's will be played at 4 p.m. Sunday at Titan Field against Cal State Fullerton.
