Soccer?

OK, so this Beckham guy is coming over here to play soccer, and some think this will make soccer more popular in this country. I'm not convinced. Soccer is just not a mainstream sport at the professional level in the United States and probably never will be. If you like soccer and like to watch it, that's fine. I'll never tell someone not to enjoy a niche sport. I'd be quickly out of a job if everyone stopped enjoying niche sports. All I'll say about Beckham is that one aging player with diminished skills cannot make soccer popular here no matter who he's married to.
