Alexi Lalas is the new GM of the Earthquakes. A guy that was a Galaxy player a few months ago is our new GM. I really hope this is some highly elaborate practical joke. I feel sick.http://www.mercurynews.com/mld/mercurynews/sports/soccer/7806386.htm U.S. soccer icon Alexi Lalas will be named general manager of the Earthquakes at a news conference today in San Jose, according to sources. Lalas, 33, was a defender on the United States' 1994 World Cup team and among the most popular players in the country when Major League Soccer launched in 1996. Lalas' move into the front office will be a quick transition: He was a player on the Los Angeles Galaxy until he was released earlier this month.
