It’s hard to argue the impact that David Beckham has had on the sport of soccer over the last 20 years. Beyond his performances on the field, he has been pivotal in bringing the sport to new heights and into new conversations away from the field. Few people are ever to transcend sport the way Beckham has. He is one of those rare professional athletes that has crossover appeal across a multitude of platforms. To take a look at his career and his journey, Hypebeast present “David Beckham Journey To LA.” Head there now and check out the multi-part series they have put together about Becks.
Yes, we did a post earlier this week on Robbie Keane and his new kit with the Galaxy, but the we couldn’t help ourselves by posting this sweet graphic found on www.mlsgear.com.
Here’s a thought, it might have been smart for the Galaxy to have released the Robbie Keane kit in the dark kit only (the 3rd kit). You know the one we are talking about, that sweet “smoke show" that Becks and Donovan rocked in a press conference earlier this summer.
Here is our reasoning. It’s a pretty fair estimate that most fans already have a white or blue Galaxy kit with Donovan or Beckman on the back. Chances are most fans wouldn’t likely splurge on a 2nd kit. But, if the Galaxy only released Keane in the dark gray, then now we are talking…..$$$.
Just a thought. Regardless, Robbie Keane, we are glad to have you state side.
