So David Beckham was kind of a disappointment

edited July 2007 in Social Entropy++
Today was David Beckham's first game for the Los Angeles Galaxy. He's coming off of a recently injured ankle, and many people wondered if he would even play. But considering that this game sold out months ago and seats were going for $2000, they pretty much had to put him in.

That said, he played like a man who was injured. They put him in with like 12 minutes left and then he didn't really do much.


Then this guy streaked the field and tried to suck his cock, but he accidentally sucked the referee's (it was kind of complicated, just youtube it or somethign).



Just kidding.



Or am I?

    Way to waste the last 2 or 3 good years of football you had playing in a league without about as much quality as my local pub league Mr. Beckham.

    I mean fuck Juan Pablo Angel is one of the best strikers in the league, and he's utterly shit.

    Still, earning £500,000 a week must be fun.

    Well the idea is obviously to bring more attention to the sport in the United States. The problems are a) no matter who comes around it's still a losing battle (I guess Pele tried that and it didn't really work) and b) as I understand it Becks is 3 or 4 years past his prime.

    He was actually playing better than he has in about 7 years this season. There's a chance it could help the league, I just think it's a waste of talent, he's still good enough to get into a lot of the best teams in Europe.

    USA was my second team last world cup.

    With Australia and some of the asian teams they know they aint gonna win and just go balls out and have fun.

    Heck, when USA lost they were all smiles and like 'fuck yeah' cause they did really well. England though suck so hard. God, I hate our national team, full of complete handicaps on a million a week who cant score for shit.

    Beckham to USA is good, raises profile of football over there cause you guys have the funding to really dominate. Take nearly every other sport, and even athletics. An American is up there somewhere in the running for titles, except football. Good.

    Not watching soccer.

    I played soccer with a bunch of friends a couple days ago.
    We're all pretty in shape, but none of us play any sports.
    That said, it was a LOT of fun, even if we couldn't keep control of the ball really.
    It was a very low scoring game.

    I'm not sure I agree. Like I said, Pele tried it and whatever success he may have had then didn't last.

    The root of the problems isn't that soccer doesn't get enough media attention. It's that the best athletes the US has to offer go to play other sports. Hence our recent history in the Olympics.

    well part of the lack of media attention is due to television exposure. because soccer doesn't have any breaks, there's no real venue for advertising (aside from jerseys and wall ads and stuff), at least not like there is in say, football, where they can put ads in after every first down or whatever.

    there's also this idea of like americans liking their own things more than others, and supposedly that's why there's more of a preference towards football, which we've made our own, and soccer, which is a sport that we somewhat inherited from europe or whatever. Im not really a big fan of that theory because I just don't care about it like that.

    I figure the fault lies in soccer moms.

    No one likes them, they show you stupid pictures of their ugly children in ugly soccer uniforms and no one cares. They drive godawful suvs and minivans and they wear shirts like 'cougar pride pack mama!' and you just wanna punch em.

    Punch em right in their fat, piggy faces while they talk on their phones with other soccer moms, arranging pizza parties for their ugly, stupid children to go to after they run around a field for an hour without scoring any goals.

    You ever watch a kids soccer game? It's boring. They all huddle around the ball and kick desperately at it untill the ball eventually bounces out of the circle, and then they do it all again. Then they take a break and eat oranges and drink capri sun, and go right back at it. The goalies sit on the ground and pick grass and dandylions while swarms of retarded children circlejerk around a ball for what seems like fucking forever.

    The only thing worth watching is the coach, some sad, depressing 40 yearold drunk father with a whistle and a clipboard barking orders like some general a great war. Only instead of fight nazi's or communists, you're up against a bunch of snot nosed children with shin gaurds. And god forbid one of the little punks falls! Oh jesus! Timmy took a cleet to his armor claded shin! Call the fucking ambulance! He's in slight discomfort! Pause the game, grab some bandaids, and god willing if he makes it through this traumatic experience, maybe, just maybe, we can start this game so everyone can get home and drink themselves dead inside, and lie to themselves that what they watched today was endearing and entertaining. Instead of seeing their little shitstains as the underacheiving antiathletes they are, they fool themselves into believing they are the proud parents of the next pele.


    Fuck soccer moms.

    They're the ones who take a cart so they can put all their kids in it when they need to buy 3-4 items.
    Then they leave the cart in my lane and just run off with their bags.
