Best blog post on Beckham to the Galaxy?

I’ll admit that I haven’t been falling over myself to scan blog content on Beckham’s arrival in Los Angeles, but this is worth a read. (I think I found it via Deadspin, FWIW). If the real test of someone’s intelligence is how much they agree with you, then this individual is a gentleman and a scholar.

That’s On Point: The Web Site: My big fat David Beckham post

Yep, he’s that special. So special that the trolls that normally wouldn’t know MLS from MLS are taking notice, albeit derogatory notice. He’s so special that the Galaxy threw away there logo and jersey design from the last decade for a new, Real-inspired duds (he gets a nice cut for all sold). He’s so special that the normally Trotsky-esque league changed it’s entire salary structure to accommodate him and his roughly $25 million (plus incentives) five-year deal.

Let’s look at Beckham in a few different categories.

1. Beckham the player.
2. Beckham’s impact on MLS off the field.
3. Beckham’s impact on soccer in the media.
4. Beckham’s impact on soccer in America.
