Alexi Lalas, president of the Los Angeles Galaxy and former US Soccer stud, was recently quoted in British newspapers as saying that MLS players are on par with English Premier League players. I applaud Lalas for this ballsy statement... I would eventually like to see MLS talent be equal with the EPL, but they are NOT there yet. He was apparently bothered by the perception that David Beckham is going into "semi-retirement" by joining the Galaxy. Beckham gets hurt all the time but still signed with the Galaxy for $250 million for 5 years... because he is going to sell tickets. Apparently people like this guy. Here is a really dope Beckham highlight video.
