Beckham is coming to North America! What do you think about that?
I think it will get more people involved in Football or Soccer in North America and one day we might have a decent team. Yes, they all suck now!
I used to watch a lot of football when I was little in Africa then we moved to Canada and hardly anyone plays it here. Lost interest in it but w ...[text shortened]... , Wow!
Football will be big in N.America one day and bringing Beckham here is a great start.

Originally posted by blade68I heard of Pele. I grew up watching Mardona (spelling?) and some other greats. Then I came here and football is dead here.
Beckham is one of the biggest names in world football at the moment, so you'd think that would have an impact wouldn't you?
Has anyone ever heard of George Best, Pele, and Franz Beckenbauer? I'm sure they were big names a few years ago...!!!
Football will never be big in America until they make them wear helmets, change 2x 'halves' to 36x 'innings', and decide all matches on penalties...
