Here we go again

One of the great things about getting older is life sometimes repeats itself.

So if you're over 40, you're probably laughing at all of the coverage of David Beckham's arrival in the United States.

It's Beckham's turn to make soccer a real live major league sport in the United States.

Good luck, Becks, you're going to need it. Pele couldn't do it. Mia Hamm and the U.S. women's soccer team couldn't do it. Maybe Becks can.


Just like the metric system, soccer never caught on here on a professional stage. Nothing wrong with that. It's just the way it is on this side of the pond.
