DC United Scores Beckham!

That would have been cool, wouldn't it?

Unfortunately, the Los Angeles Galaxy is the lucky team.

I know a lot of people are agog at the $250 million contract, but I happen to think that it's a small price to pay to have Mr. Golden Balls here in the states. More than that, however, I think it's a small price to pay to have the insanely, horrifyingly, endearingly bizarre Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham here in the states. Our fashion icons have been low-rent individuals such as Chloe Sevigny, Debra Messing and well, I can't think of another. They show up to award shows in haute couture that looks anywhere from homeless chic to simply divine. But in VB, what we will have is a guaranteed fashion icon of rubbernecking-worthy proportions. Even if you hate her, you just love to hate her. And in these troubled times, I take my chapeau off to anyone who can make us laugh, cry and learn a lesson all in the space of one outfit.

Behold, the fantabulous awfulness of our newest immigrant!

Did you see her interview on Jon Stewart a few years back? It was hilariously uncomfortable, with her very seriously not finding him funny, that she "preferred sarcastic humor." Which left Jon Stewart understandably dumbfounded.

A very inventive & exploitive 'bait and switch' header, there E. It worked. Bitch. (Just kidding)
