Beckham!

I figured that it had been a while since I had wrote the name David Beckham in this blog so I thought he deserved a posting.

With the MLS schedule being announced yesterday, soccer fans in the U.S. finally know when David Beckham will suit up for the L.A. Galaxy. Fans in Toronto should be rejoicing as August 5, 2007 will mark the day that Becks debuts and it will be against their expansion franchise. He may not be the same player as he was back when he played for Manchester, but you can count me in for watching history in the making.

What does the F.C. stand for?

Most soccer fans know that the F.C. in Toronto F.C. means Football Club, but after hearing the team’s coach Mo Johnston’s comments, it could stand for something closer to Fiercely Crappy. Johnston has been put on record saying that the team looks like it isn’t near the calibre of what a professional team should be at. While he spared the youngsters some wrath chalking their play up to inexperience, he didn’t like the looks of the veterans at all. This may be a long season for soccer fans in Toronto.
