Quote of the day

The Galaxy arrived in Montreal today in advance of tomorrow’s Major League Soccer game against the expansion Montreal Impact. Beckham, always a media magnet, was asked by a Montreal media member how it felt to come to a hockey town and try to convert fans to soccer. Beckham answered, “I think we’re the hockey town at the moment.”

Ouch.

After some laughter, from Beckham and the media, here’s what Beckham followed with: “Sorry, I don’t want to offend anyone, but… Yeah, it’s great. It’s exciting in L.A. at the moment, with the Kings. They’re playing so well and doing so well, and it’s exciting. Obviously, I know Montreal is a big hockey town as well. I don’t want to say too much more. But it’s exciting to come here as a soccer player.”
