This evening I made a very interesting discovery as I was checking my Site Meter numbers. I noticed over the weekend that someone in Calcutta, India discovered my site through a blogsearch about David Beckham and his signing last week with the MLS.
Tonight I discovered that I was quoted in an article about Beckham in The Calcutta Telegraph. The article was about what the bloggers are saying about Beckham's departure to the States later this year.
Here is the complete article about Beckham that I am in, as it appeared in the newspaper this past Sunday: http://www.telegraphindia.com/1070114/asp/calcutta/story_7258287.asp
Bye bye Becks
News that British soccer star David Beckham and wife Victoria will be crossing the Atlantic has attracted attention aplenty in bloggers’ park.
The free-kick king will quit Real Madrid at the end of the season and sign up with Los Angeles Galaxy.
For Leone (http://qek. blogspot. com), the move signals “semi retirement and footballing obscurity” for Beckham.
A blogger at http://yellowhand. vox. com has written a public letter to Beckham wishing him good luck. “I’m not sure what exactly the Galaxy’s publicity people are expecting you to do when you get there, but unless you play every game the way you did in the match against Greece before World Cup 2002, the fans are going to be disappointed.”
The Omnipotent Q (http://quinnmedia.blogspot.com) writes: “The Major League Soccer (MLS) needed a megastar to put the league on the map, and Beckham, the former England captain, fits the bill. There have been comparisons made to Pele signing for New York Cosmos in 1975 giving the struggling NASL instant credibility. Beckham should do that easily for MLS… He isn’t the best player in the world, but probably the best known.”
My thanks to the author of the article, whose name was not given on the online version. Thanks also for including my web address in the article as well.
The Internet: it never ceases to amaze me.
