09:29 AM ET 11.28 | The natural conclusion of David Beckham's American adventure arrived at the final whistle of Los Angeles' MLS Cup triumph last weekend. Beckham completed the last competitive match of his five-year deal with the Galaxy by lifting the Philip F. Anschutz trophy on the field at the Home Depot Center. His influential performance on the night provided the perfect cap to a tumultuous spell in southern California. While Beckham would benefit from playing at a higher level as he mounts his case for a place at the Olympics, he might help himself more by sticking to the more favorable MLS calendar. Beckham spent much of the 2011 campaign fighting through a persistent back complaint and a series of other maladies. At this stage of his career, he may struggle to cope with the physical demands presented by a January transfer and another five months of potentially intermittent league play.

Okay.... the T&R's just shuffled a bit. I guess this one is the latest and greatest. Becknuts does need top billing, you know. What were you thinking Sunderland?

Posh doesn't want to move to Paris after all according to ESPN LA. Honestly I think the money PSG has would be better served with a big younger player. All that money over a year and a half?? Is that long enough to get the attention you want?

Very nice, except the 6 hours of driving and having to work on Friday...

I had to go with the stretchy pants on Saturday. I put on several ounces!

I don't think I prepared properly. I went with the no eating prior to the meal, but drink tons of water technique and was stuffed after the first helping.
