Chris Vito, of the Delaware County Times (Delco Times) and the Brotherly Game, recorded this video at today's press conference with the Los Angeles Galaxy. Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena had a bit to say about David Beckham, who did not make the trip to Philadelphia with the team and will thus miss tomorrow's game against the Union at PPL Park.

"We're resting David right now," Arena told reporters today. "We have three games in a week," the former United States national team manager said, talking over a reporter asking if an injury was involved in the decision. "[We] decided to rest him."

Arena did end up taking a question from a second reporter who asked about a possible injury. "Rest, fatigue, bumps and bruises, and knowing we have a game on Saturday, we have to make some decisions on players as to who is going to play three games, two games and that kind of thing."

The Galaxy play Sporting Kansas City on Saturday, the team's third game in a week.
