ProSoccerTalk’s MLS Player of the Week: Galaxy’s Mike Magee

Mike Magee head shot

Consider for a second that Mike Magee, a valuable role man around the LA Galaxy’s two-year championship run, had five goals during the 2012 regular season. Not a bit bad for a versatile guy who splits his time between midfield and forward, and who knows his part around an LA Galaxy team with bigger stars, a man never afraid to do the two-way toil.

Now consider that he came awfully close to matching that 2012 total in one afternoon!

It should come as little surprise, Magee is our ProSoccerTalk Player of the Week for MLS Round 1. Portland’s Diego Valeri did make a late push, but still …

Magee’s rather unassuming response to the massive day, including his goals and the team’s 4-0 clubbing of visiting Chicago:

“It was cool. The hat trick was cool. Getting the win was cool. And getting the rings was the coolest part of the day.”

The Galaxy players and staff were presented with their championship rings before kickoff Sunday. Apparently, it’s not getting old.

Here’s Magee’s full post-game interview from the Home Depot Center, or the StubHub Center, or the Victoria Street grounds … whatever you’d like to call it these days:

    Things like this make me look forward to having a smug jackass in my office who picked this guy up in the traditional snake draft format for the fantasy MLS league who crows around the office about how awesome he is for spotting that guy in the 24th round. And how he beat up the poor guy who had Henry as his first round pick.

    That day is coming … sooner than a lot of people want to admit.
