As many of you know, I am a soccer (football) fan.  I love it.  Alexi Lalas (the former USA defender better known for his red hair and goatee than anything he did on the field) has suggested that the MLS is everybit as good as the EPL.  I hope this is just a PR move to highlight the fact that David Beckham is making his way over here (finally), but it is a truly remarkable statement.  Hopefully the MLS will consider the backlash (and laughter) this will get internationally.

Consider the guantlet laid and hopefully MLS is ready to backup such a statement.  So far this season I haven’t seen anything that resembled the level of play in the EPL, but you better believe a whole lot of people around the world are going to be tuning in over the next few weeks to see if Lalas was an idiot (or a PR genius) as well as just watching what Beckham can do… should be fun.
