PLAYERS: David Beckham
  According to a report via the Associated Press, renowned former soccer player David Beckham, will continue his quest to popularize the beautiful game in the United States by starting a 20th Major League Soccer franchise in Miami. A person with knowledge of the situation says David Beckham has chosen Miami to start a Major League Soccer franchise. The former England captain will ask the MLS to approve the ownership option in his league contract when he joined the Los Angeles Galaxy in 2007. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because plans for the team have not been made public. Beckham has been mulling the location of an MLS team in anticipation of his new career as a team owner. He left the Galaxy in December after five years and retired from playing in May after four months with Paris Saint-Germain. I don’t know if this is a wise business decision considering Miami sports fans’ well-documented apathy when it comes to some of their local teams, but you never know it may work.
