Beckham returns, L.A. throttles N.Y.

Whatta day for a comeback!

The Galaxy v. Red Bulls game return of David Beckham to MLS had the attention of the soccer world Wednesday night. Heck, the Fox Soccer Channel announcers were all but reading Grant Wahl's book on the air during the broadcast.

Predictably, there were (scripted?) awkward man-hugs and unnatural affection between the two Galaxy stars. I wasn't buying it, but with a 3-1 scoreline, it really doesn't matter.

The team will take all the drama in the world to dominate opponents and continues its winning streak -- now at four games.

But don't be fooled into thinking the madness is close to over. England national team coach Fabio Capello is already pleading for the Beckham return to Europe.

Oh and this other columnist dude really ripped the Englishman.
