I'm interested! Congrats!
BTW Johan did you get that Barça T-shirt for Dylan while the Costa Brava seminar?
Cheers

No,I didn't--but I'm going to the same place again this year (aptly called 'Tossa"),by which time Samuel Eto'o might be playing for Liverpool.Dylan doesn't like Ronaldinho for some reason--we'll see if Barca buy anyone cool in the transfer window. D and I (and the Magnate,and his nipper) watched the Estonia/England game on Wednesday night,which I am relieved to report England won 3-0,due to the reinstatement of a key player or three,and despite the lack of 'the killer-faced baby'.

I dont think since the "killer faced baby" has played for M.U and England he has made much progress, I think hes an excellent player but something is missin, since Becks has reappeared things are gradually improving, lets not rush in here, but in my opinion he was the best England player in the World Cup, and I thought that then.

Words a spreadin' that Becks may renege on the Galaxy deal. Either Posh can't settle on new LA digs or his injury is a bit more than first reported.

My son just made a nice little team out our way called Barca, they travel all over the tri-state area.

Johan, not sure what academy programs they have in your neck of the woods but does Dylan play footie? They start 'em real young out our way. My son is just seven, eight next month.

I think the hesitation would be due to Beckham's renewed International career,and the fact that he's back in favour at Real Madrid. Rodeo Drive and Melrose  have Victoria written all over them.Can't imagine  them slumming it at the Canyon Club for the boys on an Asian beat,can you?
Personally,I won't have a word said about DB,he's exactly what is missing in our sporting fraternity in general. Devoted,passionate,clean,diligent,unselfish (yes,I mean that),works harder than any other player on the park (fact),is the greatest right-footed player this country has produced (arguable,but he's one hell of a dead-ball specialist) and a great role model for young ones to aspire to. Unfortunately,the same cannot be said of her indoors.
Love Ben,hate Hur.

Right, despite everybody knows he's going to play in the states next season, he's given us a lesson. A pity for us (Barça). Thanx to his resurrection (and Van Nistelrooy's one) and to our players lazyness we're about to give them the league.. Maybe next year wit Henry...

On Melrose Blvd., behind every great man is a woman going through his wallet.

Kidding.

But I could not agree more about Posh. No argument from me on Becks, my son went off to school earlier this week wearing his old school Becks Man U jersey. My kids love him.

Too many times Real Madrid gave away players that were still very good : we (Inter) had the pleasure to admire Luis Figo in the last 2 years (and we won 2 italian championships!). Thanks Real!

Apparently L.Fig and Becks are good amigos.

Footie time....

Anyone see the hoopla around Becks being introduced last week in Lala Land?
Quite a spectacle, it was like Disney must have handled the proceedings. Must give him credit, he ran a press gauntlet and did at least 3 to 4 minutes with about 45 different reps that went on for hours and hours. He definitely is putting his best foot (no pun) forward in getting this off to a positive start, I give him a lot of respect for that. No preening prima donna which is refreshing seeing all the garbage that goes in with MLB loudmouths (ARod, Sheffield) and the NBA (pick one, anyone), he can leave that to Poshy. But I really hope the Galaxy and MLS play this the right way. We have not have this much excitement generated in a ex-pat joining US soccer since Franz B., Giorgio C. and Pele graced us back in the 70's.

Saw the US Women's team earlier this year and they were, in a word, unfreakin' believable (okay, two words). New blood has stepped up and they are stronger than ever and more team based than ever. Great things ahead for sure. Anyhow, I struggle with the US indifference to the game and really hope this can push things in a much needed positive direction. God speed #23, let's hope the public is ready to embrace the game a tad more than we have in the past. You know us colonists, if it's not a high scoring game we head right for the fridge and remote.

My Washington Post x-word contained a footie clue a couple of weeks ago.
'Soccer Superstar, 7 letters'.As it ended in 'ham',I thought thast might be a cinch--a topical reference. But the wily cruciverbalist had me.Nothing else seemed to fit with 'Beck" .I seemed to remember the US Ladies having a forward who had quite (easy on the eye,too) the golden toes,and was pretty good with her,erm, head.
Amie Ham?
Yes,good luck to Goldenballs.

How'd you know my pedi is gold this week, Johan?!

Spooooooky!

Kidding...metallics ain't quite my style, 'not that much of a ham, I guess. Fnar. I do remember a pretty American Soccer Goddess taking her shirt off at the end of a game (she had a sports bra on, of course), and all the hubbub.  I thought that was funny, considering that many women wear far less in public on a regular basis.  Viewership increased for ladies' soccer for a spell. 

Hm. Methinks if Mr. Goldenballs were to play with no shirt for awhile, viewership would spike...that's just a guess, of course. I'm sure if he needed the money, he could probably sell ad space on each nipple for a fee....welcome to America, Becks!

Good luck with those crosswords, Mr. Goldenthumbs...

Us colonists seem to prefer sports that were invented, or at least refined, in North America.  MLB, NBA, NFL, NHL, NASCAR.
