I’m not going to claim to know anything about soccer (there’s a net and a ball and you always have to kick it except for the times when you throw it), but it seems a little fucked up that the Real* Madrid coach is benching David Beckham for the remainder of the season since news broke that he’s going to be moving to L.A. to play for the Galaxy.
Says the coach, Fabio Capello, “He is not going to play any more. He will practice, but he is not going to play.” He continues on, “The player’s decision is to go to Los Angeles. He has always been a great professional, but a player who has such a major contract with another team … we cannot count on him. I think one cannot have the same drive if one is already with another team.”
Yeah. Someone’s a little bitter. This doesn’t make any sense. Real doesn’t even compete with the Galaxy, right? Except for like, potentially in the World Cup, which won’t happen again for another 3 1/2 years. This is just stupid ego.
Meanwhile, Posh has been in L.A. since Saturday, house-hunting, shopping and totally not having sex with David Beckham when she is totally entitled to be having sex with David Beckham and seriously that is crazier than converting to Scientology, marrying Tom Cruise and faking a pregnancy.
*Note: For those of you who, like me, care about important things like celebrities far more than you care about sports, let alone foreign sports, this word is pronounced “Ray-al,” and I’m pretty sure it means “Royal” in Spanish. I’d confirm that, but it would take upwards of 30 seconds.
