Beckham, always a media magnet, was asked by a Montreal media member how it felt to come to a hockey town and try to convert fans to soccer. Beckham answered, “I think we’re the hockey town at the moment.”
After some laughter, from Beckham and the media, here’s what Beckham followed with: “Sorry, I don’t want to offend anyone, but… Yeah, it’s great. It’s exciting in L.A. at the moment, with the Kings. They’re playing so well and doing so well, and it’s exciting. Obviously, I know Montreal is a big hockey town as well. I don’t want to say too much more. But it’s exciting to come here as a soccer player.”
Pretty cool to see such a big name in sports go out of his way to give kudos to the Kings.
For those unaware, Beckham signed a monstrous contract with the LA Galaxy (owned by AEG, who also own the Kings) a few years ago. He has lived in Los Angeles for a few years now.
"Troll" is one of those words that means whatever you want it to mean. A crazy eight. Just like "literally" and "socialist".
It wasn't a troll, it would be a troll if after the laugther, david beckham said that the habs suck and leafs rule, then took off his shirt and walked out of the room while looking back with his tounge sticking out.
