The Beckham Effect

Who’s that chiseled statuesque gentleman with the smoothest moves? David Beckham brought back style and glamour to his former team, LA Galaxy, at the official unveiling of the Galaxy’s tribute to their former star today. Not only was today was the first day of their 2019 season, it also marked the day Beckham was inducted into the Galaxy’s Ring of Honor, a small but mighty group including Doug Hamilton, Cobi Jones and Mauricio Cienfuegos. The pre-game ceremony brought out Beckham and his family, Robbie Keane, Bruce Arena and Don Garber. Beckham’s statue was created by Julie and Omri Amrany who are also responsible for statues of Michael Jordan, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Gordy Howe. The game day proved to be a success with the Galaxy opening up their season with a 2-1 victory over Chicago Fire.
