I love how sports columnists try and pain beckham as this negative story. Is that how the U.S. sports writers play with words now days? they don't have enough negative stories to write about so they find the one positive that was going on in the sports world and try and play it as negative as possibly? Just cracks me up. the latest yahoo column from "Special sports writer" is the most current that has no longer upset me. Instead, i'm laughing about it and so should you all and becks. These guys all but say "Beckham went ahead and got injured again" like he did it on purpose. Or my favorite that apparently never gets old for these sports writers "Not what the Galaxy had planned when they invest 250 million into the athlete." When are they going to start doing research or pay attention to the sport before they start writing about the sport they know nothing about? 1. He didnt cost the galaxy 250 million. 2. the MLS has already made the money back in which they've invested in him. 3. If anyone think's he's TRYING to get hurt so he doesnt have to play, you know nothing about the sport or the athlete in which you badmouth. Beckham has always been praised from the times at Man Utd to Real Madrid to his service for England that he is a work horse and he will put his own health on the line in order to help his club and country. And that is a very unique thing these days in the sports world. Instead of worrying about your next big play, your only concern is your team. Instead of worrying about your own well being, you make sure your limp back on tha field to bleed your last ounce for them in order to help make a victory out of the night. Beck's is one guy. But, even in this sport I think we can all agree that his affect on his team is always noticeable. Be it in a LAG uniform or a England uniform. That's my rant. Sorry, I had to vent.
