Blogs Silent On Beckham-To-Los Angeles News


The deafening silence of indifference has enveloped the Los Angeles blogosphere this gray morning on the matter of the imminent arrival of the arguably the biggest sports star on the planet to our fine city’s Galaxy MLS team. Since the story broke this morning around 7:15 a.m. P.S.T., incredibly, not one Los Angeles blog has mentioned story. Either this is an indicator of the lack of local popularity of soccer or, quite possibly, is a hopeful sign of a newfound maturity on the part of local blogs, who have this time shunned the all too easy tabloid-style storylines of huge sports contracts, Hollywood seduction and Spice Girl allusions. Whichever the case, I applaud them.

CORRECTION: Sean Bonner broke this story at 7:52 a.m. P.S.T. I regret the oversight.

CORRECTION 2: LAist has now updated with their take. Really, please just forget this whole post.

CORRECTION 3: Yao Ming is the biggest sports star in the world. Both literally and figuratively.

Strike 3. See me. –Ed.
