Remember how David Beckham’s attempts to own an MLS team in Miami finally seemed poised to succeed after years of failures? The ownership group got all shaken up at the last minute, again.
Miami has not had an MLS team since the Miami Fusion closed down in 2001. A joint bid between Barcelona and Bolivian billionaire Marcelo Claure failed in 2009, and the league stayed out of Florida until Orlando SC entered the league in 2015. Five years ago, MLS czar Don Garber first broached the idea of plopping an…
The nightmare you see above is the birthday dinner of choice not for a random insane person, but for 42-year-old multimillionaire global celebrity sports icon David Beckham, who could have virtually anything in the world to eat. He chose this. Beans, some kind of sad approximation of fries, ham, not one but two…
I know it’s hard for Americans to hear the words “email scandal” without instinctively shuddering and hiding under our desks for a nice big boy nap, but over in the UK, there’s an entirely different (and less politically destructive) one a’brewing. And they’re calling it “Beckileaks.”
David Beckham’s Miami Football Club appears it will finally have a stadium to call home. After a 17-month, back-and-forth process, Miami mayor Tomas Regalado announced Friday a tentative deal to build Beckham’s soccer stadium on land adjacent to Marlins Park.
In February, Major League Soccer announced David Beckham would buy an expansion franchise to play in Miami for only $25 million, a perk from the contract Beckham signed with the Los Angeles Galaxy in 2007. The same day, Beckham revealed that he planned to build a new stadium for the team, funding the $400 million…

David Beckham is starting a Major League Soccer franchise in Miami. With the location decided, he now just needs approval from the league, which is trying to expand to 24 teams by 2020. He'll get it. [The Telegraph]
A picture from the Singapore GP on British website Heart.co.uk showed "David Beckham posing with an elderly fan" at the Singapore Grand Prix. That "elderly fan" was three time F1 champion and living legend Niki Lauda. Whoops.
This video plays out like a goddamn horror movie. You spend the first two minutes knowing that shit is about to get really bad, but you still can't force yourself to look away. And then, just when you think that maybe all that buildup won't actually lead to much: chaos!
David Beckham's career is officially over. The Englishman was left out of Paris Saint-Germain's lineup for the final game of their season.
When the world's biggest sport's most beloved, most important player is finally gone, we'll all agree that David Beckham is far and away one of the most successful players to ever touch a soccer ball. Shortly after, we'll argue: was Beckham truly one of the greatest players of his generation, or just a guy lucky…
David Beckham played in the last game of his career today after announcing his retirement from soccer last week. He started and was given the captain's armband for his club, Paris Saint-Germain, in their last home match of the season against last-place Brest.
After a 20-year career that saw him become the highest-paid, most-recognizable, though not necessarily the best soccer player in the world, David Beckham is going to hang up the cleats at age 38.
Saw this photo over at TBJ, of Kobe Bryant making an appearance on his annual Nike tour of China, and it's no surprise. China loves Kobe. Loves him. That's a billion people who go nuts at the very sight of Bryant, a global superstar for 15 years now. It got me thinking: who's the most recognizable athlete in the world?
Look, Becks, we get that you're frustrated at Great Britain leaving you off the London Olympics squad. We get that. But it's no cause to grow an Austrian mustache and start trolling the world, as amusing as it may be to all of us.
In something of a shock, it's being reported that David Beckham will be left off Britain's Olympic team. The 37-year-old will not be among the three players over 23 on the roster—those places will go to Ryan Giggs, Craig Bellamy, and in Beckham's presumed spot, Micah Richards, who was himself a surprise omission from…
