A Whole New Galaxy

Another David Beckham game, another thriller for the LA Galaxy. When Beckham is healthy, he's definitely worth watching. Today, more than 66,000 fans in Giants Stadium watched the New York Red Bulls nip the Galaxy in a 5-4 shootout. Beckham had two assists in the high-scoring MLS affair.

On Wednesday, in his first Galaxy start, Beckham scored a goal and assisted Landon Donovan for another in the team's 2-0 SuperLiga win over D.C. United. It's clear that Beckham is making an immediate impact on a struggling Galaxy team that stands at 3-7-5, 10 points out of a playoff spot.

We don't know if Beckham will be able to guide the Galaxy into the playoffs this season. People forget that the great Pele joined the New York Cosmos midway through the 1975 season, and the team fell just short of the NASL playoffs. By 1977, the Cosmos were Soccer Bowl champions. Perhaps Beckham will follow a similar path. But regardless of what you think about Beckham's new career with the Galaxy, you have to admit, this sure is fun.
