The Beckham Debacle
Here's a must-read excerpt from an upcoming book by Sports Illustrated's Grant Wahl titled, The Beckham Experiment. It's an extremely interesting look at where things went wrong with Beckham and the LA Galaxy on and off the field, mostly using Beckham's relationship (or lack thereof) with Landon Donovan as a microcosm of the of the whole debacle. While no one, even in the book, is debating that when healthy Beckham is one of the best players in MLS and can still produce, the excerpt manages to make even Alexi Lalas seem a little sympathetic - and that's something I never thought I'd say.
