    I love that man like a fat kid loves cake! Whenever I got the chance to watch an England International game, I must admit, my photographs were all about him too, lol.

    They lost the match 1- 0 though, such a shame.

    Nice to see Becks is keeping up his exercises in his retirement! (G)
    Over here, this Saturday the Season started. Weep-haw! Last week, the Gods of Football, Manchester United, beat the Demon Spawn Chelsea in the Community Shield, the traditional start to the Season. Today Man U plays its first Premiership match of the season, against Reading FC at Old Trafford.
    All is right with the world. We have Rooney, Ronaldo and Fergie has just signed Tevez, so the front line is completely awesome.
    Man U’s midfield is legendary. That’s where Becks used to play, but now we have Carrick, Neville, – oh I’m drooling already!
    I do hope football (you call it soccer) catches on in the US, but I doubt Becks will be able to do it all on his own. The last time I saw a US match, it was like football in slow motion. But it’s a start, and it’s great.
    Football is above all a team game, so more great players and it’ll start to fly.
    But I still miss Eric Cantona. There’ll always be a place in my heart for Cantona.

    Lynne,

    Our National team is making HUGE strides on the international level. Watch for good things to come with this new group. Lots of good, young players that should grow into a great team. :soccer:

    As far as Beckham, you’re right, he can’t do it alone. But what he is doing is broadening the fan base that couldn’t be broken into before. He has sold thousands of tickets, and thousands of jerseys. All to people who watch him for his looks. (Oh, he is also not a bad footballer either.) He WILL make the Galaxy a much better team as he gets more time on the pitch, and more time working with his teammates, especially Donovan. :exactly: He also opens that door for other international players to come over and help the MLS as well. Time will tell if this works out, but seeing how the MLS had been doing ok for the past 10 years or so, it should only get better!

    BTW Karen, DC ROCKS! Emilio and Fred own joo! :wiggle:

    You’re right, the US team has made great strides in the past 2 World Cups, making the playoffs each time.
    But they’ve a long way to go before they reach the likes of France, Brazil, England, Italy etc. The Premiership in the UK, Serie A in Italy and the Spanish league have the best players, and to get them, the US is going to have to pay Beckham’s fee and more. Top players are going for around £30 million these days. And you need around 20 of them to make a top team (first team, subs and variations).
    Then you have to get a manager. Your best bet is probably Arsene Wenger of Arsenal, who has shown a tiny bit of restlessness recently, or to increase the niggle between Mourinho and Sevchenko at Chelsea. But Mourinho won’t go to the US. He’s too ‘special.’ (football joke – he called himself “the special one” once and it stuck).
    What managers over here want is for players to get somewhere near good, then they’ll buy them cheap. We have some US players over here, like Tim Howard and Marcus Hahnemann, the goalies.
    Besides, what are your pies like? (lol)
    But it would be great to welcome the US into the great footballing nations, and when all’s said and done it’s the fans who make it. No fans, no money, no footie. So keep rooting for your team!

    Lynne, hun, it’s not about the game here. The pictures from the nosebleed of the guy stretching didn’t tip you off?

About Me


Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.

 

Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
