Attention European readers!

I, too, am now a Beckham fan!


The vapors in Spring Training make fans and coaches dream big dreams... but it seems like this kid may be more than just a phenom... he may be playing second base for the Chicago White Sox... maybe as soon as Opening Day.

What I don't understand is how you Europeans, who tend towards strange games like, ugh, soccer, seem to have been so far ahead of the curve on this guy. From what I can tell, there have been Beckham fans in Europe, and particularly in England, for years.

And this kid was only born in September 1986; he was just drafted out of the University of Georgia last year. How did you catch on to him so early? You must have been following him since T-ball!

And you guys claim not to follow baseball! Sure. Then how do you explain the Dutch beating the Dominican Republic in the WBC? And holding their own against Puerto Rico last night? Huh?

Actually, I love baseball, but it is not shown very much in Britain.

I was looking at some information on Larry Fitzgerald yesterday (from The Arizona Cardinals) and I'm sure it was a typo that he was born in 1983, the year before I graduated from high school.

It must be!
