David Beckham: a professional soccer superstar. He’s scored eighty-five goals and won countless trophies. He’s also a father and model, and now he can claim the title of Major League Soccer team owner. That’s right, Mr. Beckham is now the proud owner of a new soccer team that will be based in Miami, Florida. It took Mr. Beckham years to get all the approvals necessary to bring his team to Miami (we’re talking about land for a stadium in particular!), so needless to say, there’s a lot of celebrating going on now that all of his hard work has paid off. But experts point out that building a successful soccer team is a long and difficult road. After all, Miami tried to build a team before but failed after four years. Despite the naysayers, though, Mr. Beckham, his family, friends, fans, and the city of Miami are taking it all in and calling this one a pretty sweet victory. Gooooaallll indeed!
