    Beckham Retires

    David Beckham is officially calling it quits:
    This David was a Goliath - ESPN FC

    I always admired Becks. The "brand" he cultivated often overshadowed his play on the field, but he was a very good all-around player and maybe the best set-piece deliverer of the ball this game ever saw. I don't think anyone else ever curled it with such consistency and accuracy as Beckham. He really hustled and his passing was always unbelievable.

    Even in his last year he was deadly:
    HIGHLIGHTS: Portland Timbers vs. LA Galaxy - YouTube (check out 2:20 through about 4:00 minutes). Just nasty.

    A wonderful career. He really helped American soccer by coming to MLS, too.
