This is good news, especially since most of the money is endorsement deals. Beckham honestly wants to live in LA, so the Galaxy are a great team for him.


I don't suppose many tears are being shed this side of the Atlantic at the Beckhams going to the US. He was a great player and is certainly a hard worker, but the surrounding furore about his private life distracts from what he brings to the game.

From what I read, Beckam should fit right in in Hollywood.

"....his private life distracts from what he brings to the game."

I know some about this. Regrettably, I think he will fit right in with many American athlete superstars.

Soccer is still a very minor side show in the US. Pele brought some attention to the sport in the late 1970s when he came to NY. As a former player and big fan, I hope that Beckham will at least be able to draw some attention to the sport (some of it hopefully good :) ) and maybe take it to a higher level.
