We’ll have to see if his celebrity gives soccer in the US the big push soccer would like to see. ESPN is going to give a lot of coverage to the Beckham debut here, and soccer is hoping the rest of the country will start paying attention.
The Trib posted a bit of a gripe about Victoria Beckham as well as a harsh opinion of the proposed reality show which Beckham and his former Spice girl wife are taking part in.
If you’re paying more attention to “the celebrity” than to the game before hand I don’t think the game is going to get an increase in attention. To bring attention to the game of the man first might have been a better idea.
