Ruud post NE
Ruud seemed a million miles away at times during the presser. I asked him if he thought the team had trouble finding Beckham during the game, and he answered, a little upset, that he thought Beckham had a very good game and defended David's performance. I don't think he really heard my question and thought I'd attacked David in some way. Also, another reporter asked about Frankie Hejduk, but he pronounced it a bit funny, with a heavy "j" sound (the j is usually silent). Ruud said he didn't know that player.
