If we counted out the L.A. Galaxy in this 2012 season, shame on us.
Shame on all of us. In what could end up being the defining moment this season, the Galaxy stormed back from a 2-0 first half deficit against Real Salt Lake at Rio Tinto Stadium to defeat the top team in Major League Soccer 3-2. The RIOT, as the RSL supporters affectionately call their home stadium, turned to the QUIET thanks to Landon Donovan's brace and an L.A. Galaxy squad eager to take advantage of RSL mistakes. Tonight we saw the heart of a champion and the never say die approach that propelled this squad to the Supporter's Shield and MLS Cup title a year ago.
