Beckham's big moment

David Beckham finally arrived in L.A. Thursday night for his much-anticipated premiere with the L.A. Galaxy.

Here's all you need to know about how he'll do in the States:

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Soccer star David Beckham and his wife, Victoria, arrived Thursday night to begin their new lives in the United States.

The British power couple smiled and held hands as they walked out of a Los Angeles International Airport terminal shortly before 8:20 p.m. after arriving aboard a British Airways flight from London.

Dozens of reporters and photographers pushed and shoved behind barriers set up at the terminal before the duo, surrounded by security guards, left in a black sport utility vehicle without commenting.

The media swarm also attracted curious onlookers, though not everyone knew what the big deal was.

"Who's David Beckham?" asked Austin Baker, an 11-year-old California boy waiting for a connecting flight, before the world's biggest soccer star arrived.
Good luck Becks. If you're going to be the savior of soccer in the U.S., you're going to need it.
