LA Galaxy vs. Houston Dynamo, 2012 MLS Cup: Kick-off at the Home Depot Center

The 2012 MLS Cup Final is underway at the Home Depot Center in Carson, CA. The stadium is packed, as you might expect and there's a large contingent of Dynamo fans in the corner supporting their team. The teams walked out past random folks holding flags of each MLS team with fire shooting out the end of the flagpole...so that was exciting.

There were also a bazillion photographers crowding the sidelines as the teams lined up before the match. A large majority of them were no doubt shocked to see 21 other players on the pitch along with David Beckham. Basically the entire ESPN pre-game show was dedicated to Beckham, which is not a surprise.

Can the Dynamo shock the world and ruin Beckham's going away party? Will the Galaxy lift the cup for the second straight year giving the media and MLS the story they really want?

We're about to find out as the match is underway!
