My name is Jo-Ryan Salazar, the beat writer for the Los Angeles Galaxy on FanSided.com. I am an avid soccer fan, and a strong supporter of MLS. I first followed the Los Angeles Galaxy back in 1996, during the league's inception. I became a diehard follower of the Galaxy in 2002, when the team first won the MLS Cup. I also follow a number of other football (soccer) teams, including Melbourne Victory (A-League), Los Angeles Blues (USL PRO), Pali Blues (USL W-League), FC Tokyo (J.League), Chelsea (Premier League) and the New York Cosmos (NASL). I bring five years of experience writing for Bleacher Report and covering a number of teams there, including the Los Angeles Galaxy.
