Wow. Soccer moms everywhere, beware!
Former England football captain David Beckham is coming over to play in les ces Etats-Unis!
Apparently, the European star decided to leave Real Madrid and set out for these U.S. shores to play some good ol' American football...err, soccer...with the Los Angeles Galaxy.
I don't even want to speculate what the Galaxy are paying him!
But Madrid's loss is most assuredly our gain.
For American soccer fans, this is the equivalent of someone like Michael Jordan suddenly up and defecting from the Chicago Bulls to a basketball club somewhere in Western Europe in his slam-dunking prime.
It could go a long way towards revitalizing American soccer...err, football...and breathe some much-needed life back into soccer as a professional sport here in the U.S.
And Posh Spice will most assuredly fit comfortably into the LA scene.
Meanwhile, eBay continues on its acquisition spree with the purchase of StubHub, an online site for reselling tickets to events, and Cisco has crashed Apple's iPhone lovefest by filing a trademark infringement suit against Jobs et al in an attempt to protect Cisco's iPhone trademark.
Apple Phone, anybody?
