David Beckham's Star Power Shines on LA Galaxy

Hosted by

David Beckham is in Los Angeles, preparing to earn his $6 million-a-year salary. The soccer icon is also a major celebrity, the husband of Posh Spice, a global marketing brand and a major investment by the LA Galaxy who will no doubt bring unprecedented buzz to the game of soccer. That buzz began long before Beckham's arrival yesterday to an enormous reception by the media. But are fans as excited as the paparazzi? Though enormously popular with this country's Latino population, and with suburban kids and their parents who gather on playing fields all over the US, soccer's never achieved the media status enjoyed by other sports. Will Beckham make a difference? We ask Jamie Trecker of FoxSports.com and Andrew Gumbel of London's Independent.
