Yes, I like the signing of David Beckham. I think that he has enough invested in the United States that he won’t ‘mail it in’ during his years in MLS like so many others have. With his academy in LA and his “A list” celebrity status the he shares with Posh he can’t afford to not pour his heart into his time here.
I like that the global representative of the sport is now going to wear the yellow and gold of the most catered to franchise in MLS (I have played there and now first hand how it is in LA).
I like that he will test his boots against the demanding schedule that we have here in the states. I like that his fame crosses over into the pop culture.
I am looking forward to playing against him and hope that he has a great regular season so long as I am not the dejected player opposite him in the ESPN highlight when he scores his first MLS goal. If you want to know how I feel about his salary….I applaud anyone that can make money playing this game.
