Striking the right tone

With all the gushing about David Beckham and his wife coming to town, it's nice to see the Venice-based eTrueSports — "Dedicated to taking scraps of truth and turning them into absurdist nonsense" — adding some punctuation to the coverage:

David Beckham, worried about LA traffic, has made a tender offer for the Pacific Coast Highway with the intention of taking the road private. "It will be like a big driveway," explained wife Posh Spice.

Meanwhile: It has been fun observing all the excitement at UCLA for FA Cup champion Chelsea, which is practicing on campus this week. They will be playing in Carson July 21 when Beckham debuts with the Galaxy. There must have been 75 soccer fans waiting for autographs at the barricades outside Pauley Pavilion yesterday. It's the season, I guess. There also were about that many watching L.A. Kings prospects work out on the ice at Toyota Sports Center on Sunday. They're there all week with two-a-day practices. The front page of today's L.A. Times, by the way, had a picture of the Stanley Cup at Pink's Hot Dogs on La Brea.

Add soccer: Breeze columnist Nick Green has launched a soccer blog on the LANG sites. They call it 100 Percent Soccer.
