Here we are, the final post on the LA Galaxy Insider for 2012.
From January 1 to December 31, the year has flown by in a whirlwind
Below are a few of my memorable moments of 2012....
*Breaking the story of David Beckham's return to the LA Galaxy in January during my time with my previous outlet Soccer By Ives.
*The incredible atmosphere during the CONCACAF Champions League Quarterfinals First Leg at the Sky Dome in Toronto and subsquently filing a story while standing on a tarmac.
*Trips to exotic locales like El Salvador, Puerto Rico and Portland.
*Conversations with members of the LA Galaxy staff, but most importantly the communications team.
*Watching David Beckham's remarkable two goals during LA's exciting 5-3 victory against the Portland Timbers in July. The first goal was my personal pick for LA Galaxy goal of the year.
*Then being in the stadium several days later as Jose Villarreal bagged his first professional goal with a tying strike against Vancouver Whitecaps FC.
*The Western Conference Semifinal series against the San Jose Earthquakes
*Telling the inspirational stories of Rafael Garcia's son Izzy and Jose Villarreal's rise from Inglewood kid to LA Galaxy Homegrown Player.
*The intensity at The Home Depot Center during MLS Cup after Omar Gonzalez's tying goal.
*My appearances for Time Warner Cable SportsNet.
*The ability to interview David Beckham on camera after his annoucement that he was leaving the club.
*Talking to LA Galaxy supporters and other fans of MLS about the beautiful game and the ways to improve this website.
*But most importantly, the ability to hold the position as the LA Galaxy Insider and report about the club on a daily basis.
2013 promises to be another great year and I want to extend my appreciation to each one of the readers, who have made this beat possible.
