No rest for the weary. Or the winners, it seems.
Less than a week after the LA Galaxy won the MLS Cup, the side is headed on what has become an annual tour of Asia and/or Australia. On Saturday, the club announced the traveling roster, which includes the big three: David Beckham, Landon Donovan, and Robbie Keane.

Injured players Leonardo and Chad Barrett were left home to continue to recuperate and rehabilitate.
