Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
Looks like Becks is staying in Los Angeles!
While he has realistically added no real statistical contributions to the team, and players like Donovan are the real heavy weights on Galaxy, Beckham is great not only for Los Angeles futbol, but futbol in America as a whole! He has elevated the status of American futbol to an internationally recognized level (we always had the talent, just not the attention) and he deserves respect for that, even if he isn't the level of player he used to be. We love him here in LA and we're glad he decided to say, of all the $200 MILLION dollar athletes to come to LA, he has been perhaps the best-behaved and has the most-heart since Magic Johnson, especially since we sent Lamar off to evil Mark Cuban's Dallas
I'm sure I'm over-reacting, but I'm perturbed at the way some coaches occasionally react. He's far from the first, but Bo Pellini really ticked me off yesterday. He gave a quick, nonsense answer to question 1, and then answered question 2 with a "We'll be fine" before the reporter had even asked the question.
I see he practices the Kobe Bryant approach to post-game interviews. Sometimes I get so mad at Kobe because he gets this sarcastic attitude with sports writers and answers their questions with vague "You know" and the such.. He says he doesn't like sportswriters and he answers their questions vaguely on purpose because he knows that they have their own analysis of the game, however what he fails to realize is that I DON'T always care about the sportswriters' analysis so much as the player's own perspective. The writers are not asking because they do not know the answer, they are asking to be able to include a quote in their article, and I for one am more interested in the player's own quotes than the talking heads and pundits.. So Kobe, duh, remember that its not just the sportswriters who are asking, we fans are all ears as well and so when you are rude and dismissive to them, it trickles down to being rude to us
I'm still hurting on that Raider loss, not like it was unexpected but still.. On the plus side, at least the Eagles rounded off a .500 season, though they were like Raiders, just a game or two away from a play-off berth.. as they say, "Any given Sunday.."
