Bending It










Although I'm indifferent to professional soccer, I won't be among the cynics characterizing people who buy tickets to Saturday's Wizards match as provincial celebrity gawkers. David Beckham, now with the Los Angeles Galaxy, is scheduled to appear at Arrowhead Stadium. While in London earlier this year I was inundated with celebrity paraphernalia and advertising campaigns featuring Beckham. That's his naked torso on the side of a bus. He seems no less popular than the late Princess Diana. In a blog entry today, Beckham writes "Hopefully we can get that first win in Kansas." Maybe a fan will toss him a map.

    Them uppity Limeys are always confusing Kansas with Missouri. Rock Stars are the worst with the problem.

    But then, hey there HIB, what state do you live in? It's all meat on the same bone and Louis Jordan swung like hell and practically invented R&R.

    I'm reluctant to add to the tedium, guys, but Saturday's game is being played at Arrowhead Stadium to accommodate Beckham's fans.
