BECKHAM TO BID FAREWELL: David Beckham is set to leave the LA Galaxy next month after six years
So that's the headline today.
I hope his shipping his ass back to Britain with his alien wife where they belong!
Bored of the Beckhams
No we don't want them.
Also bored of the Beckhams
I don't think he attracted any new spectators to LA soccer -- not for long.
I thought he quit them a long time ago. Poor Tammy will be inconsolable.
Did the plan to make soccer more popular in the US work?
He has no walls left. Old hag.
It's rare for someone who's spent years in sunny CA to return to the chilly rains of The British Isles.
r8, When you are as rich like the Beckhams you can afford central heating, posh raincoats, and fancy umbrellas. Not to mention you can have splendid vacations to warm and exotic places.
Still hotter than a California forest fire!
He was still in the U.S.?
"It's rare for someone who's spent years in sunny CA to return to the chilly rains of The British Isles."
Actually, tons of people are living the sunny nightmare that is California ....
yeah, they are leaving before the tax increase for them rich folks takes effect!
First Tammy loses Katie and Suri, now Becks is leaving him. He'll soon be stuffing himself with Cream of Wheat.
R6 nope. The media tried to make a big deal of him and his wife, but most Americans just don't give a shit about either of them. Only some American celebs and wannabe celebs became enamored with them. Good riddance. I'm hoping this means we won't have to hear about them anymore.
I hope his wife NEVER makes the cover of US Vogue.
There's just no getting around the fact that soccer is boring as hell to watch.
The only place I want DB to go is to my bedroom. I'll be there in a sec.
The local LA newsradio station took a poll and discovered that most of LA will not notice that Beckham has left.
You can say that again, r20.
At least one reliable (fish) source has confirmed that David suffers from 'tinymeat'.
It was ridiculous how so many fashion people in the US tried to make his wife, Posh Spice, Victoria, happen. At one point she was all over the place promoting her crappy clothes.
Her 'designs' are awful, they look like something you could buy at JC Penney or K Mart!
At least they didn't try to pull another publicity stunt like they did in the UK where they faked a kidnapping scare of one of their kids.
For once Americans showed good taste and ignored those two bores.
Well, America prefers its own trash over foreign trash. You know, being a patriot an' all.
R18 really? I feel he was hot in the mid 2000s but now his face and body are starting to look old and he's lost some muscle...WNF (would not fuck). I mean there are much celebs I could wake up next to without my consent, but I wouldn't CHOOSE Beckham lol
R26, I wish the Boo Boo's would get the hell out too.
Is this real? I've jacked many times to it, but have have no confirmation.
[quote]Did the plan to make soccer more popular in the US work?
His plan was to make money and get famous, not to promote soccer in the US, that was for publicity reasons.
He got too old to play soccer in Europe so he (like a lot of older players) leave and go somewhere else.
Yes, REALLY, r27. The man is attractive at any age. His body rocks. From everything I've ever read about him, he's generous, kind, and sweet. I'd fuck with him till we were Posh-sized.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
