MIKE MAGEE has played every position for Los Angeles this season - defender, midfielder, forward, even goalkeeper for one game. Yesterday, it was his scoring touch that gave the Galaxy an advantage in their playoff series against New York. Magee scored the only goal of the match, off a long cross from David Beckham, in the 15th minute, giving the visiting Galaxy a 1-0 win against the Red Bulls in the first leg of the Western Conference semifinals. Magee's goal enables Los Angeles to head home needing only a tie or a win on Thursday night to advance to the conference final.

To put in perspective how long this Major League Soccer season has been, the Union opened the regular season on March 19 while the Phillies were in Clearwater, Fla., for spring training. The Phillies' season has ended and the Union's postseason is just beginning. After earning a bye for the MLS Cup wild-card round, the Union will open the first of a two-game Eastern Conference semifinal aggregate-goal series with the Houston Dynamo on Sunday at PPL Park in Chester. Game time will either be 4 or 5 p.m., an MLS official said Monday.

King Britt and Rucyl have differing ideas as to what exactly a "science-fiction singer" is. For Britt, the label conjures the image of the opera-singing, blue-skinned alien from Luc Besson's The Fifth Element . "So I have to wear a funny outfit?" asks Rucyl, Britt's fiancee and partner in the experimental electronica duo Saturn Never Sleeps, taking mock offense. In the news release for the pair's debut CD, Yesterday's Machine , Rucyl is the one called a "sci-fi singer. " Rucyl herself has a rather abstract idea of what the term implies.

T HE GIZMO: Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 with Verizon 4G LTE mobile access (if you want) brings the game. APPLE CORED? Steve and company have done good Jobs laughing away iPad competition. Just imagine the party they threw last week when HP exited the tablet computer biz after giving its TouchPad the best darned six-week retail run they could muster. Still, there's one rival product Apple sees as a serious threat - Samsung's new Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet. Enough so that Apple took Samsung to court in Düsseldorf, Germany, earlier this month and won a temporary injunction banning sales of the tablet in 26 European Union countries based on the physical resemblance of the device to the E.U.-design-patented iPad.

A year ago on Yahoo, "Bon Jourrr" posed the following question: "Do you think Philadelphia Union will ever play Real Madrid? The only game [Real] are playing this season (well, that I could find) is [against the Los Angeles] Galaxy, which is very far away from me, so I'll never be able to go. " One person, J25code2 replied: "I don't think so, the Galaxy have a lot of money, Philadelphia Union doesn't have the power that Galaxy has. " According to a source within the organization, the Union is close to proving J25code2 wrong.

BEFORE LAST NIGHT'S matchup against the Los Angeles Galaxy, Union forward Carlos Ruiz told reporters he was "sick and tired" of talk that his team lacked an offensive spark and said his teammates planned to use this as a "statement game" to prove just how much he and the offense have blossomed. That, too, appeared to be all talk . . . until the 84th minute. Danny Mwanga, a second-half substitute, provided the spark the Union desperately sought when he pounced on a miscue by Galaxy defender Sean Franklin and scored past goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts to send a throaty, sellout crowd of 19,178 - a record in the barely year-old PPL Park - into a frenzy.

Danny Mwanga was inserted at halftime to spice up the Union's offense Wednesday night, and he accomplished that goal by scoring one himself. Mwanga couldn't have picked a more opportune time to hit the scoring column, turning what looked like a sure defeat into a 1-1 tie with the Los Angeles Galaxy before a record crowd of 19,178 at PPL Park. Stealing a back pass from Sean Franklin, Mwanga dribbled past sliding keeper Donovan Ricketts, then deposited the goal from close range in the 84th minute.

David Beckham won't be playing, but the Union insist that there won't be a letdown when they face the Los Angeles Galaxy in a Major League Soccer game Wednesday night at PPL Park. With his team in the middle of playing three games in eight days, Galaxy coach Bruce Arena decided to leave Beckham in Los Angeles. The Galaxy (4-2-4) played the visiting New York Red Bulls to a 1-1 draw on Saturday and return home this Saturday to host Sporting Kansas City. So Beckham, who is earning $6.5 million as MLS's highest-paid player, got the game off. Of course, the Union realize that the Galaxy have many more weapons than just Beckham.
