The Beckham Experiment: Further Reading




With less than a week out from the release of Grant Wahl's The Beckham Experiment, further revealations come to us via The Associated Press. Among them are that ESPN paid Beckham's management to produce an hour-long TV special in 2007, Alexi Lalas over-ruled the voting results and gave the team MVP award to Chris Klein which allegedly cost Landon Donovan $25,000 in bonus cash and that David Beckham is good to stay in the Secaucus Sheraton (which, let's be honest, most of us are).

I really enjoyed reading your blog. I have a few blogs of my own and I always look at other people’s blogs for great ideas. In fact, not to sound like an advertisement, but if I were you, I would submit this blog to http://www.AutoSurfMonster.com and let thousands of others see it for free. I get a lot of traffic and readers from them for my blogs. Anyways, I have added this blog to my social bookmark and I look forward to all the updates.

If it means anything to David, the aforementioned Sheraton just completed a $17 million renovation.

Its Secaucus, NOT SEAcausus.

Not the first time you've butchered the word Secaucus....

But great job on the Blog, I check it like four times a day.

I enjoyed my senior prom at the Sheraton in Braintree...can't see why Becks didn't like it.

I stayed at the Sheraton in Braintree a few years ago while in Boston to see an Oasis concert...the then MetroStars were there at the same time as well...Ante Rasov, Michael Bradley, Eddie Gaven and the rest all seemed like they enjoyed it....were laying in the sun and enjoying the pool and 104 degrees hot tub. Not the nicest place, but VERY comfortable beds....lol

$17 mil??

Anyhoo, my favorite part of the Beckham excerpt in SI is the part where Beckham and Xavier get carded at the restaurant when they try to order wine, then the waiter refuses to serve them when they don't have ids. I dunno, it just makes me mad because the stupid overzealous enforcement of the 21 yr old booze law has led to similar situations for myself and I'm an old man.
