Thursday Kicks: Becks on Ellen & more

Um, you do know what I mean, right?

Anyway, here’s David Beckham’s bit (ahem) on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday:

Back to your regularly scheduled soccer programming:

*The Tacoma News Tribune takes us back to the month that changed the Seattle Sounders’ season ahead of Sunday’s playoff game against the Galaxy.

*Don’t forget, the MLS playoffs begin tonight when Columbus visits Colorado at 6 o’clock on ESPN2. The Galaxy, should the club progress to MLS Cup in Toronto, wouldn’t meet either team until then, should either of them progress that far, too.

*The USWNT opens CONCACAF World Cup qualifying at 5:30 p.m. today. There’s no TV coverage of the game. Read the game basics here.

A preview of the U.S. group is here:

Watch the game here.

*How big was that big Central Coast college crowd I blogged about Wednesday? Big. Told ya.

Cal Poly won 2-1.

*Cal State Northridge fell 2-1 at home to UCLA Wednesday, in a game that saw freshman forward Victor Chavez score two goals in the first 14 minutes of the game to lead the 15th-ranked Bruins to the victory. UCLA improved to 11-4-1, while Northridge dropped to 2-12-2.

    Beckham was absolutely brilliant in that Ellen bit. How he managed to pull that off straight faced is amazing.

    Becks took direction real well and the voice wasn’t all that squeaky. Hollywood definitely beckons (i.e. beckhams).

  • Steve B

    ABSOLUTELY HILARIOUS!!! Thanks for the link (and the book) Nick!
