Soccer’s Getting In The Way of David Beckham Having Fun

David Beckham was told by his club, Real Madrid, that he should only spend Friday at in Itlay and should miss Tom and Katie’s Saturday wedding, in order to return and continue training, as well as support his team from the stands during their game against Racing Santander. This inconvenience, as well as a number of other factors, have lead the famous footballer to consider making a move in his career.

The 31-year-old former England captain, whose contract with Madrid ends in June, is nearing the end of his career. That could be good news for fans of Major League Soccer, and the kids attending his soccer academy in Los Angeles. Beckham has been contemplating a move to the United States for some time. And given his penchant for the big-time, with his ever-changing hairstyles and advertising campaigns, a country that creates celebrities as fast as most people change socks seems the perfect place for him and his pop star wife, former Spice Girls singer Victoria. “I want to play at the highest level for a few more years yet,” Beckham said at the World Cup in Germany. “Going to America is one of the ideas that I’ve thought of in the future.”

I’ve quit jobs for less. But then again, ending a two-week stint at Cracker Barrel over their request that I take out my nose ring doesn’t quite carry the same weight as this, I’m thinking.
