When a team's season starts spiraling out of control, things have a tendency to go from bad to worse. For the struggling Galaxy, the 3-2 loss to the San Jose Earthquakes on Wednesday night was crushing
, not because of the result, but because of the way the beating was carried out. Soccer can be a cruel game at times and tonight's game felt like a punishment instead of a loss. Going into the night, the result could have been expected. San Jose was on a roll, one of the best in the West, and the Galaxy were in last place following a terrible defeat to Chivas USA on Saturday.
