BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. (AP) - Robbie Rogers wasn't the only player excited to get back home when the Chicago Fire traded his rights to the Los Angeles Galaxy.

In return, the Galaxy sent top scorer Mike Magee back to his hometown of Chicago. It was a trip he'd been wanting to make since he left home 13 years earlier.

Magee says being back in Chicago is "amazing,'' and the Fire are equally thrilled he's here. In just 10 games with Chicago, Magee has eight goals. His total of 11 goals in MLS games with both Los Angeles and Chicago are one off the league lead, and earlier this month he was selected to his first All-Star team.
