Somebody's been juicing so hard it took two tweets just to reach the "J":

And which #Quakes74 player will get the Garber-mandated Red Card?#CaliClasico #LAvSJ https://t.co/nfAddxW3V0— Eli Stuart (@goldenballzen) May 22, 2016
VERY COOL: apparently part of Wondo's new contract extension included some kick-ass custom Captain’s Armbands:

Just a reminder: "Bau Daigh" (Warrior Coming Over The Hill) is the first Native American capped USMNT player ever.
And no doubt who's San Jose's Captain!
For #LAvSJ, Quakes opened up Avaya for a viewing party. Lawnchairs & Marc Pelosi welcome!
@SJEarthquakes @marcPelosi here at the viewing party! Thank you for a taking a picture with me! #Quakes74 pic.twitter.com/kML4xzXzyC— Eric Santiago (@SaintTaco707) May 22, 2016
Fox televised the Galaxy vs. Earthquakes match as a national broadcast. Fox Sports is based in Los Angeles. Fox also employed former UCLA, USMNT, & LA Galaxy standout Cobi Jones to provide color commentary. The result? A national broadcast that cemented the "home" in "homer" & pissed off everyone not Cosmo's drinking buddy:
@MLS @FOXSports @cobijones & his partner taking about greatest #CaliClasico moments & leaves out 2013 #Quakes74 comeback #homers #LAbias— Kevin (@BaldBrdednBrzen) May 22, 2016
. @FS1 just talked about ACB and Riot Squad for like 5 minutes and not one mention of the travel SJ Ultras. #NotNeutral— Quakes⚡️ (@QuakesForever) May 22, 2016
We're assuming that for the #SJvLA #CaliClasico played at Stanford Stadium, in the spirit of balance, Fox Sports will invite Steven Lenhart to provide color commentary. With emphasis on Black & Blue #GoonieTime Color!
Congratulations to @BinghamDb who makes his 50th start for #Quakes74 today! #RivalryWeekpic.twitter.com/Edf4NpKrdl— San Jose Earthquakes (@SJEarthquakes) May 23, 2016

Galaxy have little regard for Wynne:
Wynne in at center back might make life easier for JVD and Co. in the air on headers. Just Big Vic to contest. #LAGalaxy #CaliClasico #LAvSJ— Matt Pollard (@LWOSMattPollard) May 22, 2016
Dude only played amazing UCLA & Colorado minutes at CB for years.
I'm probably going to jinx it, but again the Quakes look good. Their passing the last 3 games has been much improved. #Quakes74 #CaliClásico— Lord Colin (@GrumpyITDude) May 22, 2016
Wondo has a chance here. Nice Blimp— Total MLS (@TotalMLS) May 22, 2016

San Jose's numerical advantage in the midfield is evident and it's giving the Galaxy some trouble #LAvSJ
Not a yellow , not a foul ...Officials have to handle this games pressure correctly too #CaliClasico #Quakes74— Chris Dangerfield (@ChrisDanger7) May 22, 2016
BAD IDEAS: Poking a tiger with a short stick. Sticking a fork in a light socket. Lighting a match in a methane lab. AND:
Van Damme kicks Muma in the face. Ouch. #Quakes74— Quakes Epicenter (@QuakesEpicenter) May 22, 2016
Van Damme connects with Bernardez's head. pic.twitter.com/9FBMkr2RXf— Total MLS (@TotalMLS) May 22, 2016
Run. Run away now.
With the way the Quakes are moving the ball in traffic, we could see a goal before half here.— Dom (@lovsicfrs) May 22, 2016
LA’s own not impressed:
Top players of the first half of #LAvSJ— Andrew Rouse (@usarouse) May 23, 2016
Not sure which is more impressive: dude rated all Quakes players under Rowe, Van Damme, & Rogers (all defenders), or rated them above all Galaxy attacking options.

Oh dear Wondo. No blimp cam on this. I think this shot destroyed the blimp cam. pic.twitter.com/kwNEqDzK2Z— Total MLS (@TotalMLS) May 23, 2016
That was a normal shot on goal that millions of strikers have rocketed just over the bar since Time Immemorial.
But thanks for the Belgium-inspired hyperbole.

The chemistry on this team is finally clicking, just in time to lose several of them to international callups.#Quakes74 #LAvSJ— Sterling McGarvey (@sterling_m) May 23, 2016

Rogersand Cole pushing high and need to be tracked !!#CaliClasico #Quakes74
Kinnear is apparently on the same wavelength.— Quakes Talk (@quakes_talk) May 23, 2016
Salinason for Garcia. #Quakes74
MPG made for some good movement, but sometimes for a #CaliClasico you need a grizzled veteran:
— Joe Tansey (@JTansey90) May 23, 2016
Salinashas been a difference maker off the bench for the Quakes in 2016. Could help SJ finally score its first. #LAvSJ #Quakes74
Godoy sees red after getting hit with studs into top of boot, but Zardes doesn't even see yellow:
Difficult to see on the angle of the replay, but Zardes might have gotten studs up on Godoy going for the ball. #LAvSJ— Matt Pollard (@LWOSMattPollard) May 23, 2016

Once again, CROSSBAR proving itself one of the most formidable defenders in MLS:

Crossbar's having itself a day. #LAvSJ
THE RETURN OF CATO
1) Quintero was awesome 2) it's SO nice to see @CordellMCato back on the pitch #Quakes74— Colin Etnire (@ColinEtnire) May 23, 2016
When MLS stacks the deck in LA's favor, sometimes you just need the right dealer:
I'm not sure if Dom has the cards in the deck to make the right move, but something needs to change to alleviate pressure #LAvSJ #Quakes74— Colin Etnire (@ColinEtnire) May 23, 2016
That's an Own Goal. Zardes loses his footing. If Wynne doesn't make contact, that's probably out for a GK. #LAGalaxy #CaliClasico #LAvSJ— Matt Pollard (@LWOSMattPollard) May 23, 2016
Wynne, who's been rocking the backline, makes an unlucky touch:
LA takes the lead on this Wynne own goal. 1-0 to the Galaxy. pic.twitter.com/bXIh4jmUXN— Total MLS (@TotalMLS) May 23, 2016
At least LA didn't score it.
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL FUCK YEAH FATAI ALASHE MADE ME FLIP MY PHONE THREE FEET IN THE AIR AT THIS BAR!!!!!!!— Sterling McGarvey (@sterling_m) May 23, 2016
That's what you call a team goal from SJ. Great hustle from Chad Barrett to keep possession; brilliant run & header from Alashe. #LAvSJ— John Bava III (@LWOS_JB3) May 23, 2016
As with most #CaliClasicos, we all need a Stadium Buddy:
I have to pee really bad but I'm not getting up until the ref blows the whistle #LAvSJ #CaliClasico— Marc MacLachlainn (@mmclauchlan89) May 23, 2016
Especially deep in Galaxy territory, ULTRAS are 1) in the house & 2) shirtless.
The San Jose Earthquakes fans are excited. And shirtless. But we could have predicted that. pic.twitter.com/wKhpcubwvS— Total MLS (@TotalMLS) May 23, 2016

FACT: in 2016, no @LAGalaxy player has scored when @SJEarthquakes had 11 on the field #LAvSJ #Quakes74 see you @Stanford #CaliClasico— Robert (@Epicentered) May 23, 2016
I'll take it. Thank you @FataiPrince27. Thank you @TedRameyMedia. Thank you Steven Lenhart. I need a bourbon.— cloudytoblue (@cloudytoblue) May 23, 2016
