Whatchu talking about Willis?

So everyone, and I mean everyone has they own opinion about the David Beckham extended loan/transfer/cluster-Eff/media circus from the last few months between LA Galaxy and AC Milan. I have been back on forth on this, left and right, up and down. Right now, I think I am just unsure. Apparently Becks has had a few things added to his MLS contract. One, according to Ives, he now would need to pay his way out of the contract at the end of the year if he wants to rejoin Milan in November. So, MLS stood their ground. Sure, he won't be here as the Galaxy struggle through March, April, May, and half of June, and then he'll be back and forth to Europe for English friendlies, but maybe, if he can gain enough Fabio Capello ground to earn the World Cup, then he will actually stick around the final two years of his MLS contract. I don't know. We'll see. Personally, I was more intrigued (even if Becks is duping me) by his assertion that he can and will buy an MLS team as soon as he's done playing here. That to me seems like an option that MLS would have to consider, and Beckham could become (AGAIN) very profitable in American futbol football soccer. Who knows? What do you think people? Did LA get screwed? Is this a win-win? A lose-lose? Is this a bucket of crap covered in vomit? I don't know... you tell me.

In the meantime, two more things. One, MLS breaks out again, this time in "brand new Qwest Field" (brand new to MLS, brand middle aged to Seattle's NFL Seahawks), with the Seattle Sounders FC inagural Home Opener against New York Gross Sugar Stimulus Drink. The game starts at 9pm ET, 6PM Pacific on ESPN2, and the HD version. Personally, I can't wait. I hope the band sounds great, that Wynalda's back on ESPN (fat chance), and that we have some serious Seattle atmosphere! Watch this game people.

And, has anyone seen these Soccer Moms??? The contest is coming back... details soon! holler,
