spend it like beckham!

david beckham is coming to america as the highest paid professional athlete in the WORLD. and if you do a google image search you will find 1) he was captain of the english national team 2) he is apparently averse to wearing shirts 3) he has had a stream of revolving strange haircuts and 4) he likes to kiss his teammates. (is he a fan of tofu?)

Jan. 11 (Bloomberg) -- David Beckham signed a five-year contract worth more than $250 million to join the Los Angeles Galaxy, making him the highest-paid player in team sports.

The 31-year-old former England captain, soccer's top earner in the three of the past four years, will play in U.S. Major League Soccer beginning in August, the Galaxy said on its Web site today. His agreement with Real Madrid, which he joined in 2003, expires June 30.

this is great news for american soccer (footy!) though i am generally opposed to brits and i'm a partisan for les bleus. but since he's the most famous face of soccer, especially in the usa, it is likely to raise the profile of soccer and maybe we can get some darn footy games on the telly in the states!


but this raises a much bigger question. his wife victoria is better known as posh spice. and if they move to america what will this mean for the possible spice girl reunion? inquiring corgadors want to know!!

boo--i love footy! though it's hard to get on the teevee in these parts except at world cup time. but i'm a big fan of any sport, especially those that involve chips and dips (for spectators, of course).

buster--i see why your mom picked you out. you've got pretty nice legs, too. is she also fond of the ceremony of trading jerseys at the end?

joe--no joke. i've been trying to tell if that picture is actually posh or is her wax statue. creepily, i'm unsure. the scary bit is that that image is from her spice girl days when she was actually LESS skinny. it makes me want to eat some kibble. so i will.

wally.

Hey Walster,

I think I should be paid $250mil worth of doggie treats just for being so darn cute.

I'm also good at headbutting everyone!

I must say though, I worry that with my short legs I wouldn't make the best soccer player. Maybe you and I can benchwarm and eat all the chips!

Cheerio!
Dudley
