Friday kickaround: Galaxy win on Buddle goal, Gabarra to Sky Blue, Maryland Terrapins triumph, Jon Stewart opens 'Daily Show' with Evo Morales

*MLS: With a 1-0 victory over the Philadelphia Union in front of the largest crowd in PPL Park's first season Thursday, the Los Angeles Galaxy moved a step closer to the Supporters' Shield and Edson Buddle toward the Golden Boot with his 16th goal. Buddle is in the MVP race, as is Philadelphia's Sebastien Le Toux, who nearly equalized with this cheeky touch. ... Tonight, the Columbus Crew seeks to reclaim first place in the Eastern Conference when it visits the Chicago Fire. ... Its defensive corps depleted by injuries and international call-ups, D.C. United has been allowed to add J.P. Rodrigues, 26, from second-division Miami and the Guyana national team for Saturday's night match against the San Jose Earthquakes.

*WPS: Jim Gabarra, who resigned after 10 years (three leagues) as the Washington Freedom's head coach last week, has resurfaced with Sky Blue (New Jersey).

*Colleges: Colleen Deegan scored in the waning moments to lift eighth-ranked Maryland over No. 4 Boston College, 2-1. How much time remained depends on the source: The box score indicated eight seconds. Boston College's match report said 10. Terrapins Coach Brian Pensky told me it was 11. For more on the Maryland program, read my feature story that appeared in Thursday's print editions. Tonight, the sixth-ranked Maryland men, who have beaten top-10 teams Duke and Connecticut in the past week, visit Virginia Tech.

*Comedy: Jon Stewart, friend of soccer and former William & Mary player, opened "The Daily Show" last night with the Evo Morales incident in Bolivia:

I'm thinking 3-1-4-2:
JP Rodrigues - McTavish - Nadine Namoff
Najar - Quaranta - Hernandez - Olsen
Moreno - Hamid (it's just his shoulder that's the problem, right?)

That's really turning into the nut shot heard round the world.

Wow, sounds like some choices ahead for the Gabarra family, I wish them well as they work that out.

Thanks for the very interesting piece on Terps women and Coach Pensky, and his take on the differences between coaching men and women.

Glad to see Coach Gabarra land on his feet in Jersey. He was a class act and I hope he does well up there.

This new signing could be our best Guyanan ever!

There's a big Guyanese community in this area. I'm sure they'll turn out - if there's a cricket match.

If Carin ever got a WPS coaching gig, would there be any precedent for opposing coaches with that sort of an off-the-pitch relationship? I hear there is a coaching vacancy right now, somewhere in MoCo, but somehow I doubt she will be a candidate.

$81M T&T is 12.8M US. Someone check the Miami real estate listings and see if a $12M house was sold to a Jack Warner.
