Bend It Like Beckham
The NASL/Cosmos documentary this summer ("Once in a Lifetime") was like a trip down memory lane for 'sports-fans-of-a-certain-age.' Now, with the imminent arrival of David Beckham on US shores next year, perhaps our children will be exposed to the celebritization of the "beautiful game."
While the World Cup last summer showed that Becks has lost a step (or two), he still remains one of the most recognized athletes in the world. And he will put soccer (er, football) back on the map in the US for a while.
When does the Galaxy come to Foxboro?
