David Beckham, Los Angeles-bound

Living in a city that lacks an NFL franchise, but boasts two soccer teams (Galaxy and Chivas USA) instead, I am more likely to follow soccer - the true football - than American football.

Looks like the Galaxy will get a huge boost, thanks to its acquisition of arguably the most popular player in the world - former England captain and Real Madrid player David Beckham. I hope this starts a trend that will bring more interest into soccer, and improve American soccer players' levels while at it.
