a locker room not only with great teammates but great people as well. It was amazing to be able to connect with the fans and get to know

them more and more each game. The passion they showed towards the team was inspiring. Overall it has been a great experience here in LA

and even though @cdchivasusa won't be around next year it will always be a memory I will cherish
