Beckham takes it easy in practice

Perhaps weary of Kobe Bryant's moaning about escaping from the Staples Center, Los Angeles has turned to a new sports infatuation -- soccer import David Beckham. Beckham has signed on with the MLS' Los Angeles Galaxy and already his No. 23 jersey is the hot new fashion statement out there, according to reports.

However, it seems that Beckham's much anticipated debut in an exhibition game Saturday at the Home Depot Center (it must also be the fashion in Southern California to name sports venues after big box stores rather than banks) may not happen because of a lingering ankle injury.
