Yeh, Becks the player is pretty good. But the reason he's going to LA  
(and why Galaxy are so happy to be diverting a chunk of their  
sponsorship cash his way) is as a Brand, he's huuuge. The objective  
is not just to be the best football team (not hard - Galaxy would  
struggle in the English 1st Division (which is the 2nd highest  
league)), but to take football to a greater level of consciousness.  
It's a huge game for kids (and the US women's team is a force to be  
reckoned with),  but needs to penetrate the adult consciousness.
