It's not David Beckham's move to LA that's shocking

By Andrew Pollack on 01/13/2007 at 10:54 PM EST

Any of you who read this site from anywhere other than the U.S. already know that David Becham has signed a 250 million dollar deal to play for a team based in LA. That's not shocking, really. They clearly hope he can fill seats, bring excitement, upclass the sport in the U.S. and maybe improve the players around him. That sounds like a great idea, really. At 31 the man is not, as some would say, hopelessly over the hill.

No, what's shocking is this quote from the story in the BBS news.. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/6256125.stm

According the BBC news....

And Beckham revealed that he had spoken to actor Tom Cruise about his decision to move to the US.

"I was on the phone to him (Cruise) for about an hour last night (Thursday) and an hour the night before," said Beckham.

"Obviously I asked him for his advice because he is a very wise man and a very good friend of mine. It's going to be a big help for us to have friends when we arrive in LA."


Now that's pretty insane.

Some inteligence is masterminding his career. I frequently doubt that it's his
own though I suspect his cluelessness is a front for a slightly brighter one.
Tom cruise just scares me, I think his apparent friendliness is a front also.
