According to ESPN, David Beckham will suit up and play on Saturday.
How come I'm not buying that story? Is it because ESPN has a lot invested in the game and needs him to play to avoid a lot of pissed off people complaining about the game? Is that their way of leaning on Beckham to play?
I called Beckham's PR people and was told that the report is not true (there's a shocker) and that the decision to play Beckham has not been made (again, stunning). That Beckham will even train with the team on Friday hasn't even been decided.
