"With everything that has gone on, there will be distractions. I've got to help those guys think about only one thing, and that's about their play on the field.

-- Cobi Jones, interim head coach of the Los
Angeles Galaxy, which on Thursday faces Chivas USA (ESPN2, 11 pm ET) in its first game since the departure of Coach Ruud Gullit and general manager Alexi Lalas. (Los Angeles Daily News)
