Jumping on the anti-Beckham bandwagon UPDATE

Well, MLS announced today that they have fined Beckham $1000 for “[engaging] in conduct that can be interpreted as encouraging fans to come out of the stands.”  Although the amount of the fine is pretty meaningless–obviously $1000 to Beckham is the equivalent of about 1 cent to me–it’s the message that matters.  In my opinion, the message isn’t strong enough.  Doing something that “can be interpreted as encouraging fans to come out of the stands” isn’t quite the same as “trying to pick a fight with home supporters.”  Better than nothing, but still pretty weak.  Enough of this nonsense, let’s get back to US Soccer…

I’m planning on going to the Gold Cup final on Sunday.  Expect some sort of game recap, a tourney recap, a Q&A, and the first edition of our World Cup roster predictions in the coming week.
