Beckham’s back playing, so he should be in Vancouver

At the risk of turning this into the Vancouver Football (Soccer) Blog I should note that David Beckham is back to playing football after a long period injuried following his transfer from Real Madrid to the LA Galaxy. What’s that got to do with Vancouver you ask? Well the LA Galaxy will be playing a demonstration game, a friendly game, at BC Place on October 3rd against the Vancouver Whitecaps.

We’ve mentioned it before, as recently as yesterday, but it’s worth pointing out again. That and the fact that it seems Beckham’s returning to full health means that he’s more likely to feature in the game as opposed to being saved for regular season Galaxy games and his English national team matches. Plus if you’re like me and paying to see him play it would be nice to be seeing him at his prime.

I managed to see him play in Madrid this summer [jks]. A few years before during a friendly in Seattle between Celtic and Manchester United Beckham was supposed to feature, but was traded that summer to Real Madrid. The fact that the Whitecaps used free tickets to that friendly as incentives to sell season tickets, and heavily promoted Beckham’s involvement only for him not to be on either team, is funny given that Beckham is once again being used to sell the Whitecaps.
