In what was a surprise to both the Galaxy and reporters, David Beckham kicked a ball today for the first time in more than a month.
So unanticipated was the “event,” no cameras were on hand to capture the moment, so the picture accompanying the following story is an old one (although it doesn’t make that clear).

By the way, they’ll likely be no blogging first thing in the morning.
I’m heading downtown to the Biltmore Hotel for the 10th Honda Symposium, a two-day event that culminates Friday with the Honda Player of the Year Award Ceremony (the nominees are the Galaxy’s Landon Donovan, Fulham’s Carlos Bocanegra and Everton’s Tim Howard).
Speaking Thursday are Galaxy GM Alexi Lalas, U.S. Men’s National Team Coach Bob Bradley and Mexican Football Federation General Secretary Decio de Maria.
The Biltmore has Wi-Fi so I’ll blog as events warrant.

Not noted in that BBC story: The Galaxy have home games Oct. 13 and Oct. 18 against Toronto and New York respectively
