Posh Spice is moving to LA. She's bringing some dude name Beckham that everyone is all excited about. Ever heard of him?
So yeah...I was on a train all day and missed the onslaught of news related to the massive signing of Becks to LA. Old news at this point I guess. I am pretty optimistic about it. Are you?.
PS - Did you hear that Dempsey's work permit went through? Sweet.
By the way, when is Ronaldo coming and what small fortune do we pay for him? Heck, I'd pay a nice piece of change to see LA play NY if Ronaldo was a Red Bull.
On a personal note, I've spent the week in VA and spent today taking the train back and forth to NJ for a one day work trip. So I'm a little tired to think about optimism or the impact of a global celebrity on American soccer at this point. The fatigue is compounded by the fact that when I got back to DC I ended up at an "all you can eat" Brazilian churrascaria (steakhouse) with some friends. This is the type of place where waiters bring huge knives that are spearing filet, lamb chops, leg of lamb, ribs, rib eye, pork, chicken, sirloin, garlic crusted steaks and other meats to your table as long as you have the sign flipped to green. The restaurant is called Fogo de Chao, 5 blocks from the White House and worth every penny and artery clogging mouthful.
Eat up. We're sending our young guys over seas and taking the old guys in return. Is that a fair trade? Is it weird to say that maybe Dempsey is more exciting to watch than Beckham? Cheers.
