They are creating a media sensation over them here in America with this TV series, but I swear it's because the Beckhams want it that way. It's not because we really care that they're coming here.
They aren't major stars here....the Spice Girls weren't that big a deal and soccer (sorry, football) remains not a big deal here. So while we appreciate that they're the King and Queen of British tabloids, they barely rate a cover here.
I'm happy he's coming--I hope he somehow can make soccer a major sport here. It's my favorite to watch, so I'm excited!
