Renowned metrosexual megastar David Beckham is earning some street cred. When the $250-million man first arrived in Los Angeles last month, he seemed too famous and too fragile to deign to take the pitch at Carson's Home Depot Center.
But that was then; this is now. On Wednesday, he suffered a knee injury when he didn't flinch from a rough collision. The week before, in the "super clasico" matchup between Los Angeles' two teams -- Beckham's Galaxy and Chivas USA -- the Englishman stoically played all 90 minutes despite having played an international match against Germany the day before -- in London! What's more, "Becks" even got involved in a melee; well, sort of. Shortly before halftime, he stared down Chivas midfielder Jesse Marsch after being fouled violently, though he allowed his teammates to do the actual shoving.
