SI's Excerpt from The Beckham Experiment
I may or may not post anything else today; the ocean is down the street from me and is shcokingly warm for June so I may make a move toward open water this afternoon. But if this is the last post of the day I am fine, fine, fine with that because it's a good post. Or at least it links to something good.
SI.com has a sneak peak at G.Q.O.G. Grant Wahl's upcoming feel good hit of the summer, The Beckham Experiment. The timing is amazing as it comes out two days before his MLS return versus RBNY at Giants Stadium (pre-ordrer it now from Amazon). Judging by this 3-page excerpt some people that I like are going to HATE this book as it may make them or their organization look a little less than awesome. But some other people I know are going to LOVE this book because it lifts the shroud on Brand Beckham and in the process gives us one of the most intimate looks at MLS, it's players and it's biggest star that we are likely to see.
Again, it's only a snippet of the 304 page saga but if this is any indication Landon Donovan is going to benefit the most from this release (well I'm sure Grant will make a little coin but that's not where I was going). I think a lot of people's opinion of him will change after reading this. I can't wait...I wish it was out today so I could read it in my beach chair.
Which reminds me, I've got an ocean that needs my attention. I'm out.
