The Galaxy usually have Wednesday off, but that turned out especially well for David Beckham, as he mentioned to reporters last week.
"Of course," he said when Martin Rogers asked if he'd be watching the Champion's League final.
Yet Becks has also become a big Lakers fan, and they're starting the Western Conference finals as well.
No prob. Becks owns a swanky downtown pad, reportedly right across from the Staples Center, at the new Ritz condos. So, a good plan would be to watch the Champion's League Final there, then mosey across the street to Staples for the Lakers game.
Which he apparently did with Brooklyn, his eldest. I find it amusing the Daily Mail doesn't mention the Lakers are in a final series of their own. Also, considering the Lakers were behind most of the match before a big comeback, I'm not surprised Becks was "subdued". I'm sure he cheered up at the end.
The one who could be grumpy today is Ruud Gullit, ex-Chelsea coach. Galaxy guys might expect an extra-long practice.
