Get Ready For The Onslaught


Ladies and Gentlemen, today marks a historic day in the good old US of A. With the LA Galaxy's announcement officially welcoming David Beckham to the team hereby designates the first day of a long journey that will ultimately lead to America becoming an absolute force in the world of soccer. Football, calcio, voetbal, futbol...no matter what you call it, its by far the most popular sport throughout this planet and its about time we caught up to the rest of the world.

In my opinion, the country is ripe for this change. For the past 15-20 years, we have grown a solid foundation for youth leagues around the country and the sport has certainly grown in popularity in that time. Even though we have the support in the youth leagues, there has still been a gap in terms of captivating the masses to get into, and eventually watch this sport. I believe Beckham will compel the average sports fan to either tune in or visit a stadium to get a glimpse to find out what the hype is all about. With time, I feel people will begin to realize that the sport is the balls...and little-by-little, we'll eventually become a soccer nation.

That said, I don't think we have to sacrifice any of our enthusiasm for baseball, football, basketball, etc. After all, don't we all have a few more hours per week to log in some time on the couch to watch another sporting event? Why can't America become a powerhouse in all sports the world over? So just sit back, keep an open mind, and enjoy the ride because its going to be an exciting time. And if you don't think so, go screw because you probably don't know your ass from your elbow.

Norm..

Hate to rain on your parade.. Soccer will never become a major sport in the USA... they were saying the same exact thing when Pele came over here to play with the NY team back in the day. and guess what, after the initial surge, the same surge that will happen with Becks, it faded away and the league eventually died.

I enjoy a good Premiership match on occasion, but to make it "appointment" watching like we all do for the Sox or Pats.. don't see it happening..

i wish i could

Norman P. Orlando said...

by the way RT, thats exactly my point, you don't have to choose between soccer and football. Don't we have enough time for both? Get your head out of your ass

Perhaps you have the time Norm... but most people in America would look at 2 hours watching Beckham as 2 hours they will never get back in their lives...

Let's see, tell the grandkids I saw a washed up Beckham not score in a match.. or that ?:I saw Brady throw 3 TD to Moss against the Jets.. not too sure about that one..

I think I would rather see his wife 'play' anyway

Joe Average Sports Fan here... I've never sat and watched a full MLS game. I will definitely sit and watch an MLS game if Beckham is playing in it. That's the swing. If other Joe Averages like myself get into the MLS (or professional soccer in general) as a result, well, that remains to be seen. I want soccer to catch on here in America, but I bet we'll just see the 'surge' RT mentions. Time will tell.

Maybe if this was 6 years ago and Beckham was still one of the greatest players in the world. The guy is basically a cripple that can't hack a full game anymore. Sure, he'll put thousands in the stands, probably bend the ball like a boomerang dick, and smash his dope wife after.....but I'm not going to watch an MLS game now that he's on. He's not going to do anything ridiculous.....I'd rather watch One Tree Hill on the WB.

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.
