I think he's going to do more for MLS abroad than he does in this country.

Still holding out hope for a St. Louis franchise though  Fingers Crossed

Methinks you're right:

I know Beckham was #23 at Real Madrid, although I'll admit I'm not sure what number he wore when playing in England...

He was #7 at United.  Couldn't have that at Madrid as Raul had it already.

Well now, that's over then.  Chelsea 1-0 but Galaxy significantly outplayed.  Donovan missed a softball header for the tie but not too many other scoring chances for L.A.

It's quite possible David Beckham is the biggest thing in the history of U.S. soccer.

It's an absolutely certainty that Eva Longoria is the biggest attention *trollop* in the history of everything.

Bigger than Edson Arantes do Nascimento?

Yeah, the Galaxy was clearly outplayed - especially in the second half when Cole and Shevchenko were added.  But as the recent saying goes - Chelsea can beat you with their bench players.

Beckham is creating a media circus (in a mostly good way - there can be backlash from over-exposure - Posh better learn that quick), but as I've said before - how much of this will be sustained in the US?  Most of the press following him are still foreign based.  Your 'red-blooded American' sect has a misguided love affair with making fun of soccer (borne of ignorance and whatnot) - David won't change that.  But every little bit can help and I support his coming here and all it entails.

Possibly - Beckham is here to stay, Pele was a short term rental.  Becks has a 5 year contract, a soccer academy in LA, and he and his wife make for great tabloid fodder when all else fails (no such thing as bad media right?).  When its all said and done the impact could be larger.

not to mention, the exposure mls gets is (as pathetic as it is...) way better than NASL ever got

I don't expect grand things from the MLS, but with the influx of the global population to the US, the decline of interest in the four major sports (even a little), I think it will find its niche here. When I happen to head out to sports bars, more often than not a soccer game is on one of the TV's, something that couildn't be said 5-7 years ago..

This stems from not playing as a kid. Back when I was a kid soccer had a small boom of growth. Now that us kids are parents, soccer youth leagues are having another boom. There are more kids playing soccer then baseball in my town. When these kids grow up who knows where soccer popularity will be in the US.
