He's Coming to America...

Behold the mighty Beck'. Sure he's aging former superstar who's years past his prime... but he still BECKHAM. And, as of today, he's also America's. Goodbye Real Madrid, Hello L.A. Galaxy.

I honestly could not possibly care any less. I mean, even if it meant more pictures of Posh, she has gone down hill since her Spice Girl hayday.

The reason for my extreme indifference is my lack of emotion about soccer. Soccer and hockey suck to watch. I think soccer players are great athletes bla bla bla, but games that end in a 0-0 tie are not very engaging.

OK, so this guy is about to make $250 Million Dollars! Thats over 4 million a month per his contract alone. Not to mention all the endorsements he will be getting. I would have to say, that this probably won't do much for MLS until other huge players decide to move here. It will be huge for Galaxy, and everwhere they go to play

I wish it were Luca Toni, that handsome devil from the Italian world cup team.

Marc said...

BA - Come on... admit it. You still have a thing for Victoria.

Steinhoist - Pretty insane, eh?

Sue Ellen - Not a Beckham fan are we?

Marc said...

So the Washington Post blog round up picked up on this post... apparently it doesn't take much to be counted as news these days.

All I have to say is you missed the biggest news to come out of LA today! I always thought that God was just a schoolyard kid with a magnifying glass constantly aimed at my head. After today though, I can honestly say that the greatest gift of all has been given to me, a Dodger fan! I'm in the midst of packing my bags and moving to LA as I type.

Beckham is hot. I always try to have Seth do his hair like David and he just gets mad.

Tara said...

Yes I agree with blondemama. Beckham is H.O.T. Hot. And really that is all that matters.

Steinhoist said...

Your blog got some props, that is a sweet link you might say... there would also be a sweet link on your blog if you were to add your freind steinhoist to your blog roll in a different area then the graveyard.

And that goes to everyone that might read this.

Marc said...

Simon - Hmmm... greatest gift of ALL?

Blondemama - It's all about the fauxhawk

Tara - I won't argue with you there... and I'm a straight male

Steinhoist - BLIH is still in the graveyard, where it will stay unless it is resurrected or deleted. Steinhoist, however, has been added to friends blogroll. Welcome back my friend.

So apparently Beckham might be opening the floodgates. Rumor has it that Ronaldo is possibly joining the New York Red Bulls.

Camille?! A rugby fan?!! I never knew!!!

Camille said...

Ach. Football/soccer -- a gentleman's game, played by ruffians. We all know real men play rugby (a ruffians' game, played by gentlemen).

Camille said...

Actually, "fan" is very generous wording. But I'm working on it. I'll keep you updated.

This wasn't real surprising, the rumors been around for at least a couple of years. There's 3 or 4 aging footie superstars that have expressed interest in finishing their careers in the mls. Cross your fingers!
