Who's Ready For David Beckham, Soccer Announcer?

Wednesday, September 12, 2007


I know I sure the hell am! Well leave it to ESPN to give you what you want need.....

Los Angeles Galaxy captain David Beckham, who is rehabbing a knee injury, will join play-by-play commentator Glenn Davis, and analysts Eric Wynalda and Tommy Smyth in the booth for tomorrow's MLS Primetime Thursday match -- Chivas USA vs. the Galaxy -- at 11 p.m. ET. Beckham, making his first televised soccer booth appearance in the U.S., will discuss a wide range of topics as well as provide some insight on the in-game action.
Hell....he's not playing so ESPN has to figure a way to work him in somehow. I'd love to bash them for this, but after paying for the flailing MLS.....they really have no choice.

No, Glenn "Soccer Commentator" Davis.


ESPN has lost 150% of my respect for that.

This should be fun. Beckham looks like a man's man but talks like his baby sister.

He's got to keep his work visa in the US active somehow, right? And besides, LA's got jerseys to sell.
