Now Los Angeles Is Truly A World Class City

Major League Soccer has been doing well, financially, but is apparently not yet profitable. So I have to wonder at this -- if the reports are right, the most famous football player in the world will be making something like a million dollars a week to play here -- for five years. Can the Los Angeles Galaxy possibly afford this?

Real Madrid thinks his skills are fading, which is obviously why they did not renew his contract, freeing him up to move to the United States. On the other hand, the dude is five years younger than me and in ungodly good shape. But come on, does his skill level really matter in a city obsessed with celebrity and good looks? After all, it's David Beckham's world. Including Los Angeles. The rest of us just live in it.

As I told a Priest this morning. Priests will be allowed to get married before Soccer is as popular as BaseBall-FootBall-BasketBall
