Days of yore

Luis' mention of Herculez Gomez reminded me that I saw him, sort of, just the other day. A semi-life size version of Herc and Becks is a background panel for one of the locker rooms of the David Beckham Academy. A bunch of reporters were allowed a tour there the other day.

I walked in and said, "Hey, it's Herc," and only Greg Daurio knew what I was talking about.

Now, they'll be facing off again, this time with Herc in Colorado colors, and David, of course, in Galaxy gear.

2005 wasn't that long ago. My first article may have been about Beckham (and another now-Colorado player, his former youth teammate Jovan Kirovski), but my second one was about Herc (with only a tiny mention of Beckham).
