One piece of news coming from today's press conferences was Landon Donovan saying that David Beckham has been playing hurt, and Beckham following up that he has an ankle bone bruise, but will play in the MLS Cup final Sunday.
"Today was the first day I trained," he said. "... You have to be kind of careful with it not to get any kicks on it. So it's been frustrating, but I'm sure it'll be fine for Sunday -- definitely be fine for Sunday. It's one of those things that you just have to get through. After five-10 minutes of the game, I'm sure I'll forget all about it."
