Football Day

One of my goals for this blog is to write a bit about soccer, a sport I have come to love deeply since my summer in Thailand, 2006. I even blogged about it in a little scetion called "The World Cup Check." As we get closer and closer to World Cup 2010 South Africa, I will guide you, loyal reader, through the challenges facing our "Stars and Stripes" as they seek qualification through the CONCACAAF "Hexagonal" tournament & flex their muscles against the best of the world in the FIFA Confederations Cup. USA Soccer is off to a great start for the year, (2-0 spanking of Mexico!), and on April 1, they will face Trinidad & Tobago in Nashville. Road trip, anyone? That Mexico victory has propelled us to #17 on the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Rankings. Not bad.

Today really is football day, as my beloved Manchester United takes on Inter Milan in the second leg of their Champions League tie. When it comes to soccer, though, few names turn heads (especially female heads) like David Beckham. He is one of my soccer idols and seeing him play is a memory I will always cherish. There's been no little controversy around him lately so by all means, let's hear from the man himself.
