LA Galaxy's Biggest Star

Ladies and Gentleman, we present to you LA Galaxy's newest and biggest star, David Robert Joseph Beckham, OBE, but to the rest of the world he is simply known as the famous, David Beckham! Born on the 2nd of May 1975, David Beckham is without a doubt, one of the worlds biggest marketable sports figure. Becks begins his American soccer career by arriving at Los Angeles where he will play for the LA Galaxy team.

Attended by well-over 2,500 fans of LA Galaxy, the stadium reception was somewhat a spectacle to behold, amid confetti cannons exploding and music blaring at the same time, crowds singing out loud his name at the theme song from the cartoon "The Flintstones".

Presented with his lucky No.23 jersey, Beckham will have an uphill task here as the LA Galaxy team has only won 3 of their first 12 Major League Soccer games this season to stand 2nd bottom on the table.

Made his name at Manchester United, before moving onto Real Madrid to be a Galactico and finally arriving here in America on Thursday (July 13, 2007) . The 32 year old David Beckham will make a whopping 250 million dollars over the next 5 years whilst with the LA Galaxy team. With his arrival, the Americans are hoping that this will definitely be a major boost for soccer in their country.

UK's hottest couple; Victoria and David Beckham, will be moving into their new 22 million dollar Beverly Hills mansion, before he begins his official training with the team somewhere next week. And, come July 21, the Americans will officially get to see Becks in action in his first game when the LA Galaxy's take on his former rivals, Chelsea FC.

Do you think Beckham's going to have enough of an impact on LA's team to actually make them a contender? Considering Beckham's background, I think he might get quite frustrated with LA's lack of wins. A team typically requires more than one player. That's why there is no "I" in "team" :P

I think you might have too many 0's in Beckham's salary, too. 250,000 million would be 250 Billion dollars. This would mean that after five years in LA, Beckham would have 5 times as much personal wealth as Bill Gates :P

Oops, sorry to disappoint you, Darlene.

It's just that I didn't want my post to be influenced by my frustrations on not being able to blog for the last 1 week or so.... Grrr!!!

Just to let you in a little secret .... I'm workin on a new site, it should come out later next month if all goes well. That's totally on my family :)

NIHAL said...

Well hello there, Morinn!

Glad to hear from you. I'm surprised, don't tell me, you're also a Beckham fan??

Anyway, I like the ideas at your site, you've got talent :)

NIHAL said...

Ha ha ha, Jason, you got me there!

Thanks for pointing out that numeric error, you're right. And, ya, It all seems just too nice for him and 'Posh', wonder how long he/they would 'last' there?

everybody is talking about him .. come to think of it.. probably it is good that you blog about him.. if i'm not mistaken, if you blog about celebrity, it is highly chance to attract more visitors.. it happens to my friend who blog about Gwen Stephanie coming to Malaysia.. he got quite a number of visitors just by that one post.. another example, people blogs about iPhone..

Hi Dani.

Thanks for dropping by, appreciate it.

Well actually, writing about a celebrity for the sake of traffic would eventually be a short lived one. I've had few experiences on my "Sports Bar" contents, where they were No.1 on Google search during the Champions League finale, but nowadays, very few read them.

So, the moral of the story is, these types of posts will have a very short life span, what you need is posts that will get traffic for another 3 to 5 years.

As for me and this site, it's totally an experiment project, to see what works and what doesn't :)
