"I cannot say goodbye to those whom I have grown to love, the memories we have made will last a lifetime, and will never know a goodbye" I want to thank Chris Klein, Bruce Arena and the entire Galaxy @lagalaxy family for giving me another opportunity to represent the club that I love. Thank you to all my galaxy teammates who I will truly miss. You've pushed me and inspired me to be a man I didn't know Was possible for me. You have a brother for life. And now to @angelcitybrigade @lariotsquad and every galaxy fan. We have been through a lot. Thank you first for your forgiveness. Second, for your love and support. I will always cherish the memories we made on the field and the beers we drank everywhere else. Until we meet again. But With every ending is a new beginning. I'm excited and thankful for the opportunity the @coloradorapids have given me and hope to contribute to the successes of both the team and organization. Much love, Gordo
