Found July 22, 2012 on The Other Paper:
David Beckham made good on a promise to send a box of underwear to President Barack Obama and now Michelle is insisting her husband wear them.

The British soccer star sent the Commander-in-Chief  50 pairs of his tight-fitting boxers selected from his designer underwear line after he learned that the President and the First lady were big fans of his H&M skivvies.

Fifty pairs?  That would would be a lifetime-plus supply for most men.

The President's children, Malia, 14, and Sasha, 11, are also big fans of the "hunk" and reportedly have posters of Becks plastered on their White House bedroom walls— probably of him shirtless in soccer shorts and not the revealing underwear ads.

The gift couldn't have come too soon.  Being in the middle of a mud-slinging campaign is one thing, but there's nothing worse than the President of the United States getting caught with his pants down donning a tainted pair of tightie-whities.

"David promised to send a box of his underwear to the President— and Michelle has insisted that her husband wears them." a White House source told The Sun.

The President kidded Beckham about the midfielder's sexy underwear ads when the Los Angeles Galaxy visited the White House in May to celebrate their third Major League Soccer Cup.

"In fact, it is a rare man who can be that tough on the field and also have his own line of underwear," Obama joked.

If anything, the gifting finally answers the question about Obama a whole nation wants to know: Boxers or briefs?

The President should have asked for pairs of old-school, loose-fitting boxer shorts.  Then he could officially call himself "The Leader of the Free World" in more ways than one.

Galaxy Take Super Clasico Over Chivas USA 3-1

The last time these two teams met, in May, Chivas pulled off an unexpected 1-0 win over LA Galaxy. Although, to be fair, LA wasn’t playing that well at the time. In fact, LA had lost 5 of the 6 games they played that month (they tied the other game). So maybe it wasn’t such a surprise that LA lost to them. Regardless, this was a game that LA wanted (and needed) to win. That...

Whitecaps Starting To Slide

Northwest Sports Update A review of the Major League Soccer season so far would show that Vancouver jumped out to a hot start, and it is a good thing that they did because the Whitecaps have been slumping badly as of late and that start has given them a bit of a cushion.
