A Thing of Beauty


Few players can place the ball exactly where they want it, but David Beckham has won my respect and admiration for plays just like this one.

Notice the spin he puts on the ball, the way the ball skims the top of the jumping wall of defenders, and the exact placement in the upper left-hand corner, just out of the reach of the goal keeper.

Genius.

And he's coming to LA.

If ever there was a cause for celebration, this is it.

Maybe you can let me borrow one of your shirts and we can go together!

Too bad he beat Ecuador with that kick. I'm really disapointed in your choice of games to show clips from.
