Which might be OK – except that the closing ceremonies are Aug. 12, which happens to be the date of his team’s next date against next door neighbor Chivas USA.

Maybe we should have seen this coming, seeing as his wife was already expected to be there as part of the Spice Girls reunion performance. His wife Victoria is Posh Spice, of course – or don’t you remember the 90s?

The Galaxy didn’t seem to miss its midfield playmaker over the weekend, getting all three points out of a trip to FC Dallas. (Landon Donovan was away for that one, too.)
