I don't usually blog about sports, but it blows me away that David Beckham is coming to the U.S. to play soccer.
This guy is in for quite a shock. For one thing, he's going to have to learn to call it "soccer" instead of "football." And no more huge arenas full of adoring soccer hooligans. No more dodging bananas thrown on the pitch to taunt black players.
His five-year contract with the Galaxy is reportedly worth £128 million (i.e., USD $248.7 million). Where did the Galaxy dig up a pile of cash like that? I mean, they're a soccer team.
