In an incredibly significant (though how, exactly, it’s hard to say) piece of cosmic kismet, here’s an item from tonight’s Galaxy v. Chelsea stat sheet:

Alan Gordon (David Beckham 78).

That means that many Portland Timbers fans saw the man (ex-Timbers phenom Gordon) who Beckham replaced as a substitute in his (Beckham’s) MLS debut on the occasion of his (Gordon’s) professional (Timbers) debut.

It’s all incredibly exciting. The chief difference is that Gordon scored a goal in his first match, whereas it seems Beckham did sweet fuck-all tonight.
