Last night at 8:22 PM David and Victoria (Posh Spice) Beckham arrived at their new home in LA. Many sports casters think that Beckham, who will now play for the LA Galexy in Major League Soccer, will change the way that Americans look at soccer. Almost every other place on the Globe, Soccer has been the number one sport, but here it falls behind professional bowling and poker.
But Beckham said that he will make it his GOOOAAAALLLLL to improve the popularity of soccer here.
Do you think that it will happen? Do you see us building massive soccer arenas in major cities? Do you see traffic jams to get into a Chicago Wind game?
Also as a follow up question, can the relocation of a super star change the popularity and way of thinking about music, sports, or other regional cultural concepts?
