I have attended some Galaxy games throughout the last 5 years. Unfortunately it had been better (atmosphere etc.) a couple of years ago.

The crowd is totally different than the crowd at a NFL game. Half of the people don't have a clue about football, but the party is worth coming. There are also hundreds (maybe thousands) who actually don't get to see a second of the game, because they prefer drinking their beer outside of the stadium or are already drunk before the game starts.
In Frankfurt there is always a big party before the game, starts at 3.30pm and the game starts at 7pm or so. Sometimes famous musicians do have an appearance as well. Yeah, the show is great. They play music all the time when a play is over etc.

One of the funniest moments was, when Galaxy was losing big time and the stadium announcer tried his best to keep the people in the stadium. He made comments like: "Sorry, we have to interrupt the music for the next interception!" Priceless.
