Major Link Soccer: Black Friday Special Edition

This Major Link Soccer post is available for 35% off for the first 50 viewers. Makes a great holiday gift. David Beckham is cruising Black Friday sales for a soccer stadium deal.

You better believe Landon still has it.David Beckham and his Manchester United teammates Michael Owen and Paul Scholes brought their A game as Great Britain defeated a Rest of the World side composed of legends like Ronaldinho and Luis Figo 3-1 before a sellout crowd at Old Trafford.

If you thought Kevin Costner's Water World was a big flop, wait until you see David Beckham's Water World. This blog doesn't talk enough about water. So I'm going to hit you up with some water-related links. Time for Friday Freedom Kicks! Red Bulls v Crew SC and FC Dallas v Portland intriguing - ESPN FC: So who are we rooting for in the East? Seriously, the Crew or the Red Bulls? It's like Gozer the Destructor demanding that you "choose the form of the Destructor!"
