TGI Beckham!

We are so excited that the Beckhams are moving to the states! Well, us and everybody else! David said the decision was a difficult one, and he even called up his good friend Tom Cruise for advice. Tom evidently told him that LA was a pretty cool place and filled him in on what to be prepared for when he gets over here. One of the biggest reasons he decided to join LA Galaxy was to make a difference with young children. We're sure the cool $250 mil doesn't hurt either! Here's more:

  • He said: "It was a difficult decision but not a hard one to make. I have played in top-flight football for 15 years with two of the biggest clubs in the world, so stepping away from that was difficult.
  • "Soccer has grown a lot but this is one of the reasons I want to take this challenge up - I want to take it to another level.
  • "Soccer is played by so many youngsters up to a certain age and hopefully I can a make a difference to the young kids, who play and then go on to other areas.
  • "One of my biggest passions is working with kids - I love it, that's the reason I started my academies, to see how happy we can make them. It's one of the differences I want to make and there is huge potential for that."

We can't wait to see what kind of changes happen once he gets here. Ticket sales for the LA Galaxy are already selling like crazy. If anything you'll probably see quite a few more soccer moms out at the games!

The 3rd child is named Cruz not Cruise and he was definately not named after Tom...although I am sure Tom and his ego think so. Cruz is a popular name in Spain which is why they choose it.

i love the beckhams, but i don't think it was a difficult decision for him (careerwise). He has nothing left in europe anymore. He's getting old and real madrid was going to get rid of him anyway. Real Madrid is cleaning up and it was about time (spending so much money on starplayers but they can't even become champion). And he isn't in his national team anymore. The only other option is getting back to england and play for some club with way less money and too much time on the bench and prepare to retire and making other plans.

I hope the people buying the tickets realize that he won't start playing for LA before the summer, otherwise they might be in for quite a disappointment...

Is there something wrong with me that I just don't care? I don't care at all about this dude. Or about soccer. Or about his robowife. I find nothing about those 3 things interesting or appealing. It seems like everybody else does...I feel so alone!!! *sob*

He might make soccer marginally more popular in the US market. For one the competition in the US is easier, so he will seem like a really great player which will keep networks like ESPN promoting soccer on Sportscenter, etc. However, there is always the backlash to consider. For one Becks isn't a great soccer player - he can't kick with his left foot, nor run, nor tackle and as we all saw in the World Cup last year couldn't even manage to stay hydrated. His strength is in set piece plays (free kicks, penalty kicks, corner kicks), so if he doesn't deliver there it could turn the networks and therefore fans off. Also that 250,000,000 figure is only indicative of him getting around 40 million a year through endorsement deals. The MLS only has to pay 400,000 a year, with AEG and Galaxy putting up the rest of his 9 million a year salary as well as the 6 or 7 million signing bonus. The endorsement estimate figure is factored in, though at the present the only confirmed endorsement is 5 million a year from Adidas, because Galaxy gave him the rights to his name and likeness for marketing purposes. So really unless he's signing Tiger Woods/Kobe Bryant/Peyton Manning/Maria Sharapova sized endorsement deals with companies to supplement around 35 million a year the 250 million is nothing but a really great newspaper headline. He's just got to hope that soccer doesn't get so popular in the US that we start watching the euro leagues and decide to idolise other really good looking, talented soccer players like Freddie Ljungberg or Harry Kewell.
